Money and Beauty (Cataloghi mostre) (Italian Edition)
What do you think about this eBook?
The invention and development of the banking system started from Italy, most notably from Florence, and spread throughout Europe. In a parallel development, Renaissance art followed the same routes. Masterpieces by Botticelli, Pollaiolo, and Lorenzo di Credi illustrate this interweaving of refined taste and financial interests in a great Florentine exhibition. The systems adopted by merchant-bankers to organize their international trade, the origins of modern patronage of the arts, relations between society and religion, and the conflict between amassing riches and heeding a summons to repent are analyzed and explained in the catalogue, edited by Ludovica Sebregondi e Tim Parks.
