Italian Renaissance Courts: Art, Pleasure and Power

Artists played a part in every aspect of Italian courtly life – from the production of paintings and sculpture to designing architecture, entertainments and tapestries. The point was not just beauty but a way of expressing princely power and wealth and hence cementing them. Alison Cole revealingly examines the fruitful co-dependence of the courts of Naples, Urbino, Ferrara, Mantua and Milan with figures such as Leonardo, Bramante, Pisanello and Mantegna.
