Kings, Queens, and Courtiers: Art in Early Renaissance France
UNITED STATES
CHICAGO  •  The Art Institute of Chicago  •  Ongoing
 
Discover splendid tapestries, painted portraits, altarpieces, stained glass, exquisite illuminated manuscripts, and monumental sculpture made to express the power and prestige of the kings of France and their court. Kings, Queens, and Courtiers: Art in Early Renaissance France highlights a fascinating period in French art in the years around 1500, when late Gothic exuberance encountered the energy and harmony of the Italian Renaissance in an elegant fusion of artistic styles.

The catalogue accompanying the exhibition is the first full treatment of this subject in English. In addition to entries on each object, the publication includes essays by Philippe Contamine, professor at the Sorbonne (retired); Pierre-Yves le Pogam, curator in the sculpture department of the Louvre; Philippe Lorentz, professor at the University of Strasbourg; and Martha Wolff on the historical situation of France.
