Synopsis: Cassoni is the Italian word for the chests, painted with scenes from myth and literature, central to upper-class weddings of the 15th century. Little known today, cassoni deserve recognition as masterworks of the Renaissance. Botticelli, Pesellino, and other superlative artists painted them. And they are precious early examples of the mythopoetic subjects that would form the core of European art until the 20th century. The essays in this book shed new light on the meaning of cassoni through informative discussions of Renaissance wedding rituals, male-female relations, and daily domestic life. A catalogue section on cassoni in the exhibition that this book accompanies provides a unique guide to the stories of love, marriage, and politics depicted on these sumptuous objects.

About the Author: CRISTELLE BASKINS is chair of the History of Art Department, Tufts University.

Book Description »Cassoni« heißen in Italien die handbemalten Truhen, in denen seit dem 15. Jahrhundert für höher gestellte Bürgerstöchter die Aussteuer gesammelt wurde. Kunsthistorisch stellen die Cassoni eine eigenständige Gattung dar, die Bemalung mit Szenen aus Mythologie und Literatur sind dem Forscher eine Art kondensiertes Abbild einer Kunstgeschichte im kleinen Format. Viel zuwenig ist über die - über die Zeitläufte hinweg geretteten - Cassoni bekannt, dagegen setzt sich dieser Bildband ein. Es sind die so sorgfältig geschmückten Truhen ein herrlicher Anblick, von welchem der Leser sich hier überzeugen kann. Man erfährt aus den gemalten Darstellungen viel Interessantes aus dem italienischen Alltag während der Frühen Neuzeit und Details aus dem häuslichen Leben, ja, auch aus den politischen Gegebenheiten der Zeit - und zugleich erzählt jede Truhe eine einzigartige Liebesgeschichte in bestechend schönen Bildern. (Text engl.) 28 x 22 cm, 182 Seiten, zahlr. farb. Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 636088
