Order Description

In Baxandall’s book, Painting and Experience in 15th century Italy, he describes a very strong relationship between the social arrangements by which paintings were produced and distributed and the way these paintings looked. The question for your paper is in two parts:

1. Choose two conventional characteristics of 15th century paintings and explain the “market ordering” transactions influencing the use of these stylistic elements. Use specific examples from Baxandall to support your explanation and make sure that you describe the people involved in these transactions and their relationship.

2. Explore the relationship of economic and cultural value of the paintings produced in this art market. Compare two examples of what makes a “good” painting in the 15th century Florentine context and explain how economic and cultural issues are related.
