From the Back Cover:

Through close examination of Renaissance paintings, drawings, book illustrations, and other art works, Patricia Fortini Brown brings fourteenth—fifteenth century Venice alive. She explores the role of the guilds and the nobility, the unique island setting, the environment of the church and the private home, the political rivalries with other states, the taste for symbols and metaphorsQthe myriad qualities that made Venice distinct and its art unique. Carefully interweaving art-historical analysis of individual works (both famous and little-known) with rich contextual discussions, she reveals a culture of high beauty, artifice, and craftsmanship.

Review:

"Brown challenges the Tuscan-centred understanding and definition of the term 'Renaissance' in her splendid survey." -- The Art Book, January 1998

"sweeps across the social and political worlds of 15th- and 16th-century Venice, embedding works of art in a rich matrix." -- Choice, October 1997
