This sumptuous catalogue provides an overview of French art
circa 1500, a dynamic, transitional period when the country,
resurgent after the dislocations of the Hundred Years' War, invaded
Italy and all media flourished. What followed was the emergence of
a unique art: the fusion of the Italian Renaissance with northern
European Gothic styles. Outstanding examples of exquisite and
revolutionary works are featured, including paintings, sculptures,
illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, tapestries, and metalwork.
Exciting new research brings to life court artists Jean Fouquet,
Jean Bourdichon, Michel Colombe, Jean Poyer, and Jean Hey (The
Master of Moulins), all of whose creations were used by kings and
queens to assert power and prestige. Also detailed are the
organization of workshops and the development of the influential
art market in Paris and patronage in the Loire Valley.
