The Renaissance : revised, expanded, unexpurgated

D. Medina Lasansky (Editor)
The volume pools new research from a team of experts in art, architecture, history, and literature, and juxtaposes modern and classical art and explores the relationship between them. The book's 129 illustrations include images of contemporary art never before related to the Renaissance, and well-known appropriations of classical art. The front cover shows Andy Warhol's Detail from a Renaissance Painting (1984), based on Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. "We're trying to shake up the field of Renaissance studies," says Lasansky. "It's so elitist and so stodgy and so male. There are a lot of things that have never been discussed."
