About this title

Synopsis:

The twelve silver-gilt cups known as the Aldobrandini Tazze–magnificent examples of 16th-century European goldsmithing in size, design, and quality of execution – feature figures and scenes from Roman historian Suetonius’s classic work The Twelve Caesars, all rendered in minute, intricate relief.  Dispersed in the 1860s, the tazze were reunited in 2014 for the first time since the 19th century, each piece newly photographed to highlight the dazzling detail and show the works as they were originally made.  The accompanying essays, written by a team of scholars from around the world, explore the persistent questions that swirl around these unique silver dishes, including where, when, and for whom they were originally made, what they were used for, and why the set was separated and scattered.
 

Book Description:

Prominent art historians and scholars explore the mysteries surrounding a set of twelve lavish silver-gilt dishes—among the most important Renaissance works of their kind.
