Thomas, Anabel. The Painter's Practice in Renaissance Tuscany. Cambridge University Press 1995. 398p, over 90 ills. + 16 color pls. Very good paperbound (lightly read). ** "Presents a detailed picture of the commissioning, production and marketing of paintings, [such as] the way in which the painter and his business functioned from day to day, how the subjects and their style were decided, the constraints on cost and design, and the division of labour within and between workshops." Draws on many archival sources, especially the workshop record book of the painter Neri di Bicci. Out of print.
