Summary
Renowned as a period of cultural rebirth and artistic innovation, the Renaissance is cloaked in a unique aura of beauty and brilliance. But behind the vast explosion of new art and culture lurked a seamy, vicious world of power politics, perversity, and corruption that has more in common with the present day than anyone likes to admit. In this meticulously researched portrait, Lee illuminates the dark contradictions that were hidden beneath the surface of the best-known artworks of the Renaissance
