Les modèles romains d’un enlumineur curial du Quattrocento
Roman Quattrocento artists shared a common interest in ancient and early Christian art and they had a strict sense of perspective. One of them, the Master of the della Rovere missals, reduced the monumental Roman shapes to small-scale ones on enlightened pages. He inspired himself from the Roman frescoes and sculptures of his contemporaries so as to keep alive a continuous artistic dialogue with the artists of his generation such as Andrea Bregno and Melozzo da Forlì. His predominant position among the pope‘s inner circle enabled him to have a clear insight of what was at stake for art from a diplomatic and political point of view and of its direct line of descent from its ancient and early Christian origins.
