The Renaissance and Mannerism in Europe
Alain Gruber
Abbeville Press, 1994

This is the first volume of a series devoted to the history of decorative arts from the 15th to early 20th centuries. This comprehensive volume covers from about 1480 to 1630. Each chapter focuses on one of the major ornamental motifs of the era - interlace, rinceaux, grotesques, Moorish tracer, and strapwork - and explores the rich and varied applications of that motif in all artistic genres including: architecture, painting, sculpture, tapestry, embroidery, bookbinding, ceramics, and metalwork.
