About the Author

Evelyn Welch is professor of Renaissance studies, Queen Mary, University of London, and was formerly reader in the history of art, University of Sussex. She is the author of Art and Authority in Renaissance Milan, published by Yale University Press, and of Art in Renaissance Italy.


"'To reconstruct the activity of shopping in the Renaissance, Welch deploys an extraordinarily wide range of material... Her valuable book offers the reader an acute insight into the origins of our present-day consumer culture.' RA Magazine 'outstanding... written with such a pace that you're hooked before you have a chance to feel scared by the scholarship.' Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian 'An innovative work of social history... Renaissance Italy's fragmented nature, and the fact that much modern scholarship remains parochial and focused on individual centres, makes the breadth of this study one of its most original features... An original and handsome volume.' Fabrizio Nevola, The Burlington Magazine 'Welch's painstaking analysis of often quite disparate archival and visual evidence is quite masterful... An engaging, illuminating, and wide-ranging book... A visual feast.' Catherine Kovesi, Renaissance Quarterly"
