Cosme (Cosimo) Tura was among the most striking and inventive painters of the Italian Renaissance. This study discusses Tura's place in quattrocento painting, and examines his critical fortunes over the centuries. The painter is placed in a broad artistic context, including a consideration of the artist's relationship to painting from the Veneto, local manuscript illuminations, and Ferrarese poetry of the time. A large part of the text is devoted to placing his art in the historical and cultural context of Estense Ferrara, where he worked for more than three decades. Transcriptions of all the documents that relate to Tura's varied and active career as an artist, especially those that record his work as court painter for the Estensi are included, and a catalogue raisonne provides detailed information on Tura's known works. There is commentary and bibliography on other attributions, and illustrations of all of Tura's works.
