Earthly delights

A new, narrative history of the Renaissance that takes in the whole of Europe and its global context, written by one of the UK’s foremost art critics and respected writers on art. What was the ‘Renaissance’? In the nineteenth century this flowering of creativity and thought was celebrated as the birth of the modern world. Today many historians are sceptical about its very existence. ‘Earthly Delights’ rekindles the Renaissance as a seismic change in European mentalities, in a panoramic history that encompasses Florence and Bruges, London and Nuremberg.
