Quattrocento art, Italy, Florence, Early Renaissance
A number of comparatively recent publications on collaboration in Quattrocento art attest to the renewed interest in reassessing the nature of professional exchange among artist. These studies continue to shed more light on the prevalence and extent of collaborative artistic undertakings in Florence during this period. Originating in archival research, the studies reject the romanticized, traditional view of Early Renaissance painters, sculptors, and architects as solitary geniuses, suggesting instead that these creative talents operated as entrepreneurs who collaborated to establish profitable careers.
