Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Hilliard's portrait miniatures open a remarkable window on to the highest levels of English society in the later years of the sixteenth and the early years of the seventeenth century – the Elizabethan and Jacobean ages. It is impossible to remain immune to their charm and charisma. Hilliard's images show us the features of many personages of his time with a naturalism usually absent from the large-scale paintings of his contemporaries, helping to form our conception of the appearance of, among others, Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Sir Francis Drake, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, Sir Walter Raleigh and James I. The author here provides a portrait of Hilliard’s life and exquisite work. Codice libro della libreria 2417
