9780300159851: Shopping in the Renaissance: Consumer Cultures in Italy, 1400-1600

Shopping was as important in the Renaissance as it is today. This fascinating and original book breaks new ground in the area of Renaissance material culture, focusing on the marketplace and such related topics as middle-class to courtly consumption, the provision of foodstuffs, and the acquisition of antiquities and holy relics. The book investigates how men and women of different social classes went to the streets, squares, and shops to buy goods they needed and wanted on a daily—or a once-in-a-lifetime—basis, during the Renaissance period.

Evelyn Welch draws on wide-ranging sources to expose the fears, anxieties, and social possibilities of the Renaissance marketplace and to show the impact of these attitudes on developing urban spaces. She considers transient forms of sales such as fairs, auctions, and lotteries as well as consumers themselves. Finally, she explores antiquities and indulgences, both of which posed dramatic challenges to contemporary notions of market value and to the concept of commodification itself.

Evelyn Welch is professor of Renaissance studies, Queen Mary, University of London, and was formerly reader in the history of art, University of Sussex. She is the author of Art and Authority in Renaissance Milan, published by Yale University Press, and of Art in Renaissance Italy.

Review:

"'To reconstruct the activity of shopping in the Renaissance, Welch deploys an extraordinarily wide range of material... Her valuable book offers the reader an acute insight into the origins of our present-day consumer culture.' RA Magazine 'outstanding... written with such a pace that you're hooked before you have a chance to feel scared by the scholarship.' Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian 'An innovative work of social history... Renaissance Italy's fragmented nature, and the fact that much modern scholarship remains parochial and focused on individual centres, makes the breadth of this study one of its most original features... An original and handsome volume.' Fabrizio Nevola, The Burlington Magazine 'Welch's painstaking analysis of often quite disparate archival and visual evidence is quite masterful... An engaging, illuminating, and wide-ranging book... A visual feast.' Catherine Kovesi, Renaissance Quarterly"

Descrizione libro Yale. 1 Paperback(s), 2009. soft. Condizione libro: New. (Winner of the 2005 Wolfson Foundation History Prize) Shopping was as important in the Renaissance as it is today, posits Evelyn Welch. In this engaging and gorgeously illustrated study she examines the era's material culture, focusing on the marketplace and such related topics as consumption, from the middle class to the court; the provision of foodstuffs to the market; and the acquisition of antiquities and holy relics. An expert in Renaissance studies and art history, Welch includes 212 color and black and white reproductions of art in her investigation of how men and women of various classes went to the streets, squares, and shops to buy goods, from daily necessities to once-in-a-lifetime purchases. She exposes the driving fears, anxieties, and social possibilities of the marketplace, and explores the impact of these attitudes on developing urban spaces."Outstanding . written with such a pace that you're hooked before you have a chance to feel scared by the scholarship. Shopping in the Renaissance is an immaculate slice of scholarship, hung around with the beautiful illustrations that are a signature of publication by Yale University Press. As a happy result, whenever the text threatens to go over your head, you can feast your eyes on exquisite paintings, sketches and artefacts from the 15th to the 18th centuries, secure in the knowledge that you will never, ever be able to afford them for yourself."—Guardian (London) 403.
