During the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, Venetians lined their government council chambers and religious fraternities with narrative paintings of pageantry, diplomacy, and pious legend. These works--which include Carpaccio's pictorial stories about St. Ursula, St. George, and St. Jerome, as well as Bellini's panoramic recordings of the urban scene--have often been discussed, but in isolation from their social context and from each other. This richly illustrated book is the first to examine them all together.
