Book Description:

This book probes the role of culture in state craft by examining how seventeenth century rulers pressed art and architecture into the service. Alice Jarrard focuses on the ambitious Italian patron, Duke Francesco d'Este of Modena, who deployed art works strategically for his exiled family. Drawing from vital Italian court traditions for his festival practices, the duke imported opera theater designs from Venice and called on famed Roman artists to create portraits and palaces. Demonstrating how performance brought paintings, sculptures, and buildings to life, Jarrard reveals the dynamic role of art in seventeenth-century political discourse.

Review:

"One of the book's important strengths is its focus on the provincial ducal seat. Jarrad's analysis skillfully suggests the particular challenges and nuances of Francesco's position and aspirations as expressed through art and architecture." Sixteenth Century Journal, Saundra Weddle, Drury University

"Overall, Alice Jarrard provides a focused, well-detailed and interesting study of the patronage of Francesco d'Este that does much to restore his reputation as a serious patron, and highlight the sophisticated diplomatic skills that allowed him to cultivate an international acclaim and secure a lasting place for his family in the world of art history."
