The Material of Culture: Renaissance Medals and Textiles from the Ulrich A. Middeldorf Collection

The Material of Culture: Renaissance Medals and Textiles from the Ulrich A. Middeldorf Collection
This catalogue by Perri Lee Roberts accompanies the exhibition of the same name, consisting primarily of medals, plaquettes and textiles from Indiana University Art Museum. Both catalogue and the exhibition present a historical overview of Ulrich A. Middeldorf's career as an art historian, teacher and curator. Contextual material provides insight into how these luxury artifacts were utilized in the Renaissance and the various ways in which they convey the desire for personal recognition, taste for public display and a sense of general pride and enjoyment so prevalent in 16th-century Italian urban society. Includes full-color images of almost every work in the exhibition.
