Publisher's Description

Inspired by research undertaken for the new Medieval & Renaissance Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Re-thinking Renaissance Objects explores and often challenges some of the key issues and current debates relating to Renaissance art and culture.
  • Puts forward original research, including evidence provided by an in-depth study arising from the Medieval & Renaissance Gallery project
  • Contributions are unusual in their combination of a variety of approaches, but with each paper starting with an examination of the objects themselves
  • New theories emerge from several papers, some of which challenge current thinking
