Abstract:

"Today we consider painting, sculpture, and architecture the major arts of the Renaissance. To contemporaries, however, it was more often finely wrought goldwork, embellished armor, splendid tapestries and embroideries, and gems that were much more prized. The exquisite craftsmanship and the precious materials of these opulent creations were signs of their owners' rank and privilege. By contrast, the modest materials of paintings and sculptures relegated them to a lower status." "Luxury Arts of the Renaissance traces what we now consider "minor arts" from their status as markers of elevated position and wealth in the Renaissance to their present reputation as objects unworthy of serious consideration as Art. Re-examining the objects themselves and their uses in their day, the author demonstrates how these sumptuous creations constructed both the world and the taste of the Renaissance."--BOOK JACKET.
