Inigo Jones and Renaissance Art

The full text article is not available.

Abstract:

Inigo Jones, best known as England's first Renaissance architect, designed masques for the English court that brought the ideas, traditions, and art of Italian Renaissance to England. In this he fulfilled the hopes of his friend, the antiquarian Edmund Bolton. He used specific and identifiable sources to present theatrical spectacles conceived as instructive pictorial displays. Jones called himself an “imitator”; art imitated nature and imitation was held to be the best way to learn art. This imitative art unites his masques and architectural designs.
