About the Author

Richard Stapleford is Professor of Art History at Hunter College, City University of New York.


"This translation will be welcomed by teachers and scholars in every corner of the English-speaking world and will provide a useful and, in many ways, inexhaustible resource for many years to come."-Brian A. Curran, The Pennsylvania State University

"This book will be of considerable interest to art historians concerned with the social history of art, especially scholars of Lorenzo il Magnifico and his milieu. It will also be invaluable to scholars concerned with clothing and jewelry. In short, it will be a useful addition to the bibliographies of undergraduate and graduate courses in Renaissance art history. The notes are rich and highly instructive."-Paul Barolsky, University of Virginia

"Lorenzo de' Medici at Home succeeds as a primary source for social, cultural, and Medici research and classroom use while also serving as a pleasurable view into the daily lives of the Florentine elite."-Tracy E. Robey, Renaissance Quarterly

"This book would make a beneficial addition to university libraries and to the collection of scholars studying the Medici or the Italian Renaissance in general. It will make a wonderful resource for teaching the Renaissance, offering students the chance to engage with the household of one of the greatest families of the period and gain a greater understanding of these particular figures and of everyday life in a Florentine palazzo."-Elena Woodacre, Sixteenth Century Journal

"Haven't most of us thought about how interesting it would be to poke through the possessions of a recently deceased rich-and-famous person? If you're one of those people, as I am, you'll find this book fascinating."-Judith Anne Testa, Fra Noi
