Description
Marriage in 15th-century Florence was rarely a love match, but instead an alliance between two families involving huge expenditures. Foremost among the symbols of the union was the cassoni—a pair of chests that were lavishly decorated with precious metals and elaborate religious or mythological paintings, often the most expensive pieces of a whole suite of decorative objects commissioned to celebrate the marriage. The 1472 Morelli-Nerli chests—the most complete examples of the art form remaining today—are the centerpiece of this exhibition catalogue, which features more than 60 color photographs of cassoni and related paintings by Botticelli, Uccello, Lo Scheggia, and di Giovanni.
