A fascinating study, Alison Cole explores the distinctive uses of art at the five great secular courts of Naples, Urbino, Ferrara, Mantua and Milan.

Relying on an artistic patronage to promote their legitimacy and authority, the princes who ruled these courts commissioned major artists and architects – from Mantegna and Pisanello to Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci.

Examining in detail the courtly styles that emerged from this intricate landscape as well as the complex motivations of ruling lords, consorts, nobles and their artists, Cole draws on the most recent scholarship to present a vivid picture of the art of this extraordinary period.
