This lovely book details the activities of the leading artists of Florence during the 1470s, when Lorenzo de`Medici and his allies were cultivating the visual arts as an important means of asserting influence. The book discusses the art of Andrea Verrocchio, Antonio and Piero Pollaiuolo, Sandro Botticelli, and Filippino Lippi; the competition and collaboration among them; and the religious, political, and social contexts of their work.
