Renaissance majolica: a priceless collectionItalian maiolica is a uniquely vivid and intimate reflection of the world of the Renaissance. This book is the catalogue of the world's most substantial private collection of Renaissance maiolica. Starting with some fine pieces from the fifteenth century, it includes important and beautiful examples from the main sixteenth-century production centres – Deruta, Faenza, Gubbio, Tuscany, Venice, Castelli – but is especially rich in examples of the istoriato maiolica of Urbino and its district by the leading artists in the age of the Della Rovere Dukes of Urbino. It comprises a detailed and wide-ranging account of Italian maiolica in the context of the wider culture and other arts of the Renaissance, written by one of the world's principal specialists.
