This lovely book provides an introduction to the activities of the leading artists active in Florence during one decade of the quattrocento. It illustrates their special contributions and highlights their differences, common sources and ambitions, and responses to each other. It also explain how their art was made within the framework established by the religious, political, and social needs of powerful Florentine families. This was an era when Lorenzo de'Medici and his allies were working to consolidate their dominance in Florence, and cultivation of the visual arts were an essential part of the way in which they asserted their influence. Competition and collaboration was encouraged between artists, as was innovation in subject and technique.

The book concentrates on the art of Andrea Verrocchio, Antonio and Piero Pollaiuolo, Sandro Botticelli and Filippino Lippi. Their paintings are presented within the context of the other arts practiced in the same or in neighboring workshops, and a number of works in other media are included: sculpture and objects in marble, bronze, and clay; manuscript illumination; medals; engravings and drawings. Among the drawings discussed are some by the young Leonardo, who worked with Verrocchio and was responsive to the art of the Pollaiuolo brothers during this period.
