Top edge green. The Renaissance, whose rise and decline in 15th century Florence were so ably charted by the author in 'The Florentine Renaissance', did not end with the collapse of the Medici rule. In the following century the centre - and many of the Florentine artists - moved first to Rome and later still to Venice. In the Rome of Julius II and Leo X which Michelangelo remodelled and beautified, in the Venice of Titian and Tintoretto and Palladio's architecture, as well as at the Courts, the Renaissance reached that flowering not only of the visual arts but of the theatre, history, biography, epic poetry and music, all of which are vividly described in the book. B2A. Near Fine/Near Fine.
