Paintings, Artifacts and Dr. Currie's Insight 30 Jan. 2007
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Currie worked at the Victoria & Albert museum in London for several years in the Furniture, Textile and Fashion department. She now lives in Florence and has combined her experience and education to present this study of the 'lifestyle of the rich and famous' during the Italian Renaissance.

The book is lavisly illustrated with photographs of artwork, furniture, tableware, and room fixtures of the time. It presents a view of how life in the period was lived. It is done in the form of first a description of the Renaissance home, then a room by room view.

Along with a descrition of the room itself, there is also a description of life in that room at that time. For instance in the chapter entitled 'The Bedroom,' there is what might be called a sub-title: 'Marriages, Births and Everyday Life.'

Dr. Currie has done an excellent job of pulling these pictures together.

There are, of course, no bath rooms, and in spite of the decorations and elegance, I can't help but wonder what the place smelled like.
