9780521522632: Herculean Ferrara: Ercole d'Este (1471-1505) and the Invention of a Ducal Capital (Cambridge Studies in Italian History and Culture)

The court of Ercole d'Este was one of the most glittering in Renaissance Italy. The duke was a prolific builder, and the leader in the revival of classical theater, an enthusiastic patron of musicians, and a creator of magnificent court spectacles. Very little survives to testify to Ercole's achievements, largely because of a devastating earthquake in 1570, but extensive archival evidence has been used to reestablish the duke's achievements and the extent to which he was personally involved in his patronage.

Review:

"A thorough gazetteer of churches and of urban and country palaces, as well as an extensive critical apparatus including annotated transcriptions of primary documents, make this beautifully produced study a valuable reference tool for those investigating the dynamics and goals of cultural patronage in the Italian Renaissance." K.V. Gouwens, Choice

"Tuohy's voluminous and well-illustrated book is the first research specifically devoted to an assessment of Ercole d'Estw's direct involvement in the archtectural reorganization of late fifteenth-century Ferrara, an impressive series of projects whose final outcome brought into being what Jacob Burckhardt described as the first really modern city in Europe." Stefano Ugo Baldassari, Sixteenth Century Journal

"Tuohy has constructed a uniquely rich and authentic picture of one Italian court city." David Friedman, American Historical Review

"...solidly based on new and thorough archival scholarship...." Werner Gundersheimer, Speculum

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 194 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ercole d Este (1471-1505) is perhaps best known as the father of Isabella d Este, marchioness of Mantua, but his court in Ferrara was one of the most glittering in Renaissance Italy. He was an extremely prolific builder and laid out plans which doubled the size of the city. He was also the leader in the revival of classical theatre, an enthusiastic patron of musicians, and a creator of magnificent court spectacles. Very little survives to testify to Ercole s achievements, largely on account of a devastating earthquake in 1570, but considerable archival evidence has been used to re-establish the duke s achievements and the extent to which he was personally involved in his patronage. This evidence runs contrary to many currently held assumptions, and although Herculean Ferrara deals with one court and one ruler it also challenges some of the basic notions about the relationship between artist and patron during the Renaissance.
