Often overshadowed by the cities of Florence and Rome in art-historical literature, this volume argues for the importance of Naples as an artistic and cultural centre, demonstrating the breadth and wealth of artistic experience within the city.
- Generously illustrated with some illustrations specifically commissioned for this book
- Questions the traditional definitions of 'cultural centres' which have led to the neglect of Naples as a centre of artistic importance
- A significant addition to the English-language scholarship on art in Naples
