The Intellectual Life of the Early Renaissance Artist by Francis Ames-Lewis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Regarded as artisans and craftsmen in the early 15th century, painters and sculptors acquired new status as "artists" within little more than a hundred years. Francis Ames-Lewis explores how Mantegna, da Vinci, Raphael, Durer and others gained intellectual respect and artistic autonomy from enlightened patrons by promoting the idea of the artist as a creative genius with a distinct identity and individuality.
