Having bought a copy of each, I was pleased to find that this volume is identical with Evelyn Welch's Art in Renaissance Italy, 1350-1500, as I prefer books in hardback and the latter book was a set text. I can find no differences, and indeed the later title has the copyright date of 1997, the date of Art and Society. The book itself - a set text on many courses on Renaissance art - is very much worth reading.

A unique and novel perspective on Renaissance Art and Life
on 26 May 1998 - Published on Amazon.com
An excellent examination of the role of art in Renaissance life, including the actual day to day workings of the artists, their roles in the society as a whole, and the role of art itself in the display of "Magnificence" of the respective ruling authorities of the various Italian states. I have run across no other book with this unique perspective. It also discusses the role of women and women artists, while recognizing the extreme limits set for women, both in the society and in the creation of art works. I regret not being able to contact the author directly to offer my respect and admiration for such a formidable and at the same time completely accessible work of scholarship.
