We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

The Painter's Practice in Renaissance Tuscany
Thomas, Anabel

1995. 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. (Item ID: A5908)
