At Home in Renaissance Italy draws together a range of ideas and objects-from paintings and textiles to kitchen utensils, popular prints, jewelry, and everyday dress-to reveal how the homes of the upper- and middle-classes made a crucial contribution to the flowering of the visual arts in 15th- and 16th-century Italy. Drawing on a wide array of sources, including contemporary letters, inventories, and archaeological surveys, it offers a completely fresh and in-depth exploration of the fascinating domestic world of Renaissance Italy.
