Art Markets in Europe, 1400-1600 free pdf The reinvention of art history during the 1980s has provided a serious challenge to earlier formalist and connoisseurial approaches to the discipline, in ways which can only help economic and social historians in the drive to study past societies in terms of what they consumed, produced, perceived and imagined. This group of essays focuses on three main issues: the demand for art, including the range of art objects purchased by various social groups- the conditions of artistic creativity and communication between different production centres and artistic millieux- and the emergence of art markets which serve to link the first two phenomena. The work draws on research by art historians and economic and social historians from Europe and the United States, and covers the period from the late Middle Ages to the early 19th century.
