- About this book
- Extra (1)
From one of the early examples of a ‘group portrait’ frescoed by Benozzo Gozzoli in the private chapel of Palazzo Medici Riccardi, to the codes of public and private self-portrayal, and to the idea of a portrait as the ‘Holy Family’, this work reveals a formerly unknown aspect of the Medici’s political propaganda. The essays and research retrieve the phases of the collections and remnants of furnishings, from marble works to the pieces of furniture used to exhibit them.
