About the Authors
  • Art, Memory and Family in Renaissance Florence examines the relationship between the production of objects and the production of memory and history in fifteenth-century Florence. Recent studies of Florence by cultural, social, political and economic historians have resulted in a considerable knowledge of family life in this period and the significance of family, kin and neighborhood in the social and political life of the city. Investigating the means and modes of formulating and recording those relationships, the essays gathered in this study consider the interconnections among society, art and memory.
