9780820476452: Lucrezia Tornabuoni de’ Medici and The Medici Family in the Fifteenth Century

Lucrezia Tornabuoni de’ Medici and the Medici Family in the Fifteenth Century is a fresh, new biography of a Renaissance woman who lived during the heyday of Medici power. A remarkable person in her own right, the author of religious poems and sacred narratives, as well as an accomplished businesswoman, Lucrezia was the mother of Lorenzo the Magnificent, the grandmother of two popes, and the great-great grandmother of Catherine de’ Medici, Queen of France. This glimpse of her life and times is a window onto the political intrigues and intellectual achievements of Medici Florence.

About the Author:

Maria Grazia Pernis has a Columbia Ph.D. in art history. She is the author of Le Platonism de Marsile Ficin et la Cour d'Urbin, and the co-author with Laurie Schneider Adams of Federico da Montefeltro and Sigismondo Malatesta: The Eagle and the Elephant (Peter Lang, 1996). She has published several articles, including "The Young Michelangelo and Lorenzo de' Medici's Circle," in Lorenzo de' Medici: New Perspectives (Peter Lang, 1993). Pernis has also lectured widely on the influence of humanism and Neoplatonic philosophy on Renaissance art. Laurie Schneider Adams is Professor Emerita of Art History at John Jay College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. She is the editor of Giotto in Perspective and the author of The Methodologies of Art, Italian Renaissance Art, Key Monuments of the Italian Renaissance, Key Monuments of the Baroque, Art and Psychoanalysis, Exploring Art, A History of Western Art, and Art Across Time.

Review:

Lucrezia was both ordinary and extraordinary...  She composed a series of poems on apocryphal subjects, including Judith, Esther, and Susanna.  In this section, the authors make a particularly effective argument about Lucrezia's ability to use these poems to explore themes of value for her own life,..
  --- Matthew P. Romaniello, The Historian
