** Ouvrage en anglais **

This volume examines the painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and architecture produced in aine important court chies of Italy during the course of the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries. The six essays, which were specially commissioned for this volume, examine the development of patronage as well as the production of art in Milan, Parnia, Piacenza, Mantua, Ferrara, Bologna, Urbino, Pesaro, and Rimini.

They explore the interaction of artists and their civic and/or courtly patrons within the context of prevailing cultural, political, and religious circumseances. Although each chapter represents a separate study of a particular geographical locale, many common themes emerge, including the nature of artistic practice   the concept of the court artists the politics of local and foreign styles   the rote of corporate and individual patronage and production  the circulation of artists and images in Northern Italy and beyond   the function of art in constructing individual and group identity   and the relationships among science, theology, and the visual arts, particularly in the sixteenth century.

A multifaceted consideration of the art created for princes, prelates, confraternities, and civic authorities - works displayed in public squares, private palaces, churches, and town halls - The Court Cities of Northern Italy provides a rich supplement to traditional accounts of the artistic heritage of the Italian Renaissance, which have traditionally focused on the Florentine, Venetian, and Roman traditions.

The book includes both 35 color plates and 228 black and white illustrations.
