An introductory essay presents a fascinating account of the changing patterns and motivation for royal patronage of Italian art over the centuries, while the wealth of illustrations provide the reader with an opportunity to study the paintings and drawings in close-up detail. This publication is a perfect introduction to Italian art and artists as well as a sumptuous souvenir of an exhibition of international importance.
