Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521418127, Hardcover)

This lavishly illustrated book is the first full-length study of Inigo Jones as a stage designer. Jones' designs for the Stuart court masques played a crucial role in transmitting the visual language of the Italian Renaissance tradition into English culture, and John Peacock examines the ways in which he adapted them from continental sources, many of them identified here for the first time. His exploration adds a new dimension to our knowledge and understanding of a figure who is generally considered the most important English artist of the seventeenth century.
