A spellbinding account of the rapacious pursuit of the most exquisite paintings in the world In the Gilded Age, newly wealthy and culturally ambitious Americans began to compete for Europe's extraordinary Old Master pictures, causing a major migration of art across the Atlantic.

In this work, Abolala Soudavar examines seven paintings by some of the great masters of the 15th century and demonstrates how we can better understand the state of international relations and the political rivalries of the time by decoding the figures, their postures and gestures, the background scenes, the compositions and much else in these paintings. This is a period of geopolitical turmoil, with the Muslim Turkish assault on Europe causing distress within the Christian World. Yet it is also a time of courtly opulence and Shakespearean drama, with murders and vendettas, wars and crusades, i
