Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The fourth edition of this seminal work covers the historical background of the period in relation to the artistic output achieved - most significantly in the sphere of architecture. Once the influence of the earlier Italian Renaissance had crossed into France, largely brought by Italian artists who sought profitable commissions outside the Italian peninsula, artistic learning and patronage bloomed and even managed to survive the disastrous Wars of Religion in the second half of the 16th century. In an age which produced Fontainebleau, and impressive artists in all of the disciplines, there is much to admire in this detailed study which is thoroughly illustrated in black and white. (Kirkus UK)
