"Benozzo was born towards the end of 1421 in the region of Badia a Settimo, part of the level district to the west of Florence. From 1438 to 1444-5 Benozzo collaborated with Fra Angelico on the frescoes at the Dominican convent of San Marco, and is generally agreed to be almost exclusively responsible for the decoration of two rooms which were reserved for Cosimo de'Medici. Benozzo Gozzoli explores the life and works of the artist, with many of his artworks reproduced in colour."--Amazon
Art of the royal court : treasures in Pietre Dure from the palaces of Europe by Wolfram Koeppe( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the royal and princely courts of Europe, artworks made of multicolored semiprecious stones were passionately coveted objects. Known as pietre dure, or hardstones, this type of artistic expression includes?paintings in stone,? which were composed of intricately cut separate pieces that were made into magnificent tabetops, cabinets, and wall decorations. Other works included vessels and ornaments carved with virtuosic skill from a single piece of rare and brilliant lapis lazuli, chalcedony, jasper, or similarly prized substance; exquisite objects such as boxes, clocks, and jewelry; and portraits of nobles sculpted in variously colored stones. Derived from ancient Roman decorative stonework, the art of pietre dure was developed in Renaissance Florence, where the manufacture of such objects was enthusiastically sponsored by Medici princes. Ideally suited for ostentatious display, the works sent an unmistakable message of wealth and political might that was understood in centers of power everywhere. From Italy the medium spread across Europeto Prague, Madrid, Naples, Paris, and later Saint Petersburg. Precious and fragile, pietre dure objects are rarely brought together in large numbers. This richly illustrated catalogue contains more than 150 masterworks from across Europe, dating from five centuries, including almost every artistic use of semiprecious stone during this time as well as some of the finest examples of the medium. Eight essays by European and American experts discuss the individualized development of pietre dure in every European region, the latest developments in scholarship, the interrelationships between art and dynastic politics and between cultures, and a variety of techniques used to produce these luxurious masterworks."--Metropolitan Museum of Art website
Treasures of Florence : the Medici collection 1400-1700( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Treasures of Florence: The Medici Collection 1400-1700 reunites the most beautiful jewellery and ornaments in the Medici collection from the 15th to 18th centuries. Although today these objects are distributed among several Florentine museums, they are presented here together. The book divides the fascinating history of the Medici family into a series of chapters each devoted to a major patron within the dynasty. These chapters provide a detailed history and description of the objects and their makers and the reasons they were commissioned or purchased. Vivid color photography, much of it especially commissioned, faithfully conveys the opulent beauty of this magnificent collection." "Originally bankers and merchants, the Medicis became identified as supporters of the workers and artisans of Florence in the late 14th century. Early in the 15th century the family began 300 years of almost uninterrupted control as popular leaders of the city. After his death in 1464, Cosimo, the first of the ruling Medicis, was given the title Pater Patriae (the father of his country) by his people. It was his grandson Lorenzo (the Magnificent) who patronised Botticelli, da Vinci, and Michelangelo." "The focus of the Medicis' collection was jewellery, gems, cameos, ornaments and exotic objects. It also included antique vases made using the pietra-dura technique, whose value was increased through elaborate borders made of gold, silver or enamel. Many were collected by Lorenzo il Magnifico. Treasures of Florence boasts a rich variety, from the works of Benvenuto Cellini, through Baroque art, to exotic pieces from Asia, Mexico, and India. The final chapter examines the exquisite jewels which belonged to the Elector Anna Maria Ludovica, the last ruler of the Medici dynasty."--Jacket
