This book considers what contributed to this Venetian aesthetic - the citys Byzantine heritage and geo-political context, its tradition of family workshops, and the way it controlled and protected its artists through the oldest painters guild in Italy.

It also recreates the three worlds of the Venetian Renaissance: the civic world, with its public art- the religious world, with its sacred art- and the private world of the aristocratic home and royal palace, where the pastoral imagery of pagan antiquity, the development of landscape painting and the celebration of the female nude and of portraiture are found.
