9780779905348: The Fifteenth Century Illustrations of Christine De Pizan's The Book of the City of Ladies and The Treasure of the City of Ladies: Analyzing the Relation of the Pictures to the Text

Christine de Pizan was one of the few authors of late medieval France involved with all aspects of her manuscripts' production. Her work has received enormous scholarly attention as their subject is nothing less than the history and education of women. This book fills a gap in the scholarship by shifting the attention from their literary content to the imagery chosen to illustrate these two pioneering books on women and their worth. This new focus includes artists of Christine's own choosing to those illustrating The City and The Treasure after her death throughout the peak of the two works' popularity.
