In this book, the Gentileschis' work is placed in the context of courtly patronage - a structure in which art and politics were strictly intertwined. Charles I was attempting to transform his court into a truly European one, art collections included, while papal diplomacy worked tirelessly to convert Charles so that he might join the ranks of Catholic monarchs. Art was instrumental to this attempt; Cardinal Francesco Barberini, on behalf of pope Urbano VIII, sent many artworks to the court of St. James. Evidently, art's function extended beyond the aesthetic. Paying tribute to art's prime position within the monarchic establishment of 17th-century Europe, this book will be an invaluable resource for any student of Art History.
