This scholarly volume examines the dramatic, tragically brief lives of two forgotten protagonists of the Florentine Renaissance: Lorenzo Tornabuoni (1468-1497) and his wife, Giovanna degli Albizzi (1468-1488), the offspring of wealthy and powerful families whose lives and marriage can be connected with more than twenty works of art (including paintings by such figures as Botticelli and Ghirlandaio) that shed light on the multifaceted nature of Florentine Renaissance culture.
