The first major survey of tapestry production between 1460 and 1560, the book presents forty-five surviving tapestries along with some twenty preparatory drawings and cartoon fragments. Featured are examples designed by Italian masters Raphael, Giulio Romano, and Perino del Vaga. In addition, works by Netherlandish designers such as Bernaert van Orley and his followers are included, demonstrating how elements of the northern design tradition were fused with Italianate innovations, resulting in an extraordinarily rich aesthetic, ideally suited to the medium.
