Lorenzo de' Medici and the art of magnificence by F. W Kent ( )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lorenzo was educated in the arts by such men, and Kent explores his aesthetic education and taste, taking into account what is known of Lorenzo's patronage of music and manuscripts, and of his own creative works as a major Quattrocento poet." "Illustrated with photographs of Medici landmarks by Ralph Lieberman, Lorenzo de' Medici and the Art of Magnificence offers a portrait of Lorenzo as a man whose achievements might have rivaled his grandfather's had he not died so young."--BOOK JACKET
Patronage, art, and society in Renaissance Italy by F.W., ed Kent ( Book )
10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Patronage, in its broadest sense, has been established as one of the dominant social processes of pre-industrial Europe. This collection examines the role it played in the Italian Renaissance, focusing particularly upon Florence. Traditionally viewed simply as the context for the extraordinary artistic creativity of the Renaissance, patronage has more recently been examined by historians as a comprehensive system of patron-client structures which permeated society and social relations. The scattered research so far done on this broader concept of patronage is drawn together and extended in this new volume, derived from a conference held in Melbourne as part of 'Renaissance Year' in 1983. The essays, by art historians as well as historians, explore our new understanding of Renaissance Italy as a 'patronage society', and consider its implications for the study of art patronage and patron-client structures wherever they occur

Australians in Italy : contemporary lives and impressions ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Long before the advent of modern tourism, Australians travelled to live in Italy, or undertook extensive visits there. Indeed they continue to do so in increasing numbers, as women and men find Italian partners; as business people with European interests settle there; as retirees in their thousands seek 'the good life' that Italy - in Ros Pesman's words, this 'culturally endowed place of rebirth' - seems to promise .... This collection seeks to map the past and present of the Australian love affair with Italy, and yields rich insights into its causes, motivations and transformations." -- About page
Princely citizen : Lorenzo de' Medici and Renaissance Florence by F. W Kent ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lorenzo de' Medici (1449-92) was in his own time one of the most renowned of Renaissance figures. His myth has continued to fascinate both scholars and the many tourists who are drawn by it to explore what remains of the Medicean presence in Florence. Lorenzo's first English biographer, William Roscoe, described him as the most remarkable man who had ever lived in ancient or modern times. This collection of essays explores Lorenzo's apprenticeship as the de facto ruler of Florence and the means by which he exerted control over friends and clients to ensure the ascendancy of the Medici dynasty. The essays place the religious and artistic patronage of Lorenzo in the context of his political career and explore other important aspects of his emergence as the princely citizen of a still proud republic
