Silk fabrics woven with gold thread, predominantly produced in Italy, were depicted frequently in Renaissance painting, both in costumes and as backdrops for important figures. These painted textiles carried an economic and social significance that a contemporary audience would have recognised as part of the message conveyed by the picture. Gold brocade and Renaissance painting focuses on examples from Italy and the southern Netherlands , dating from the fourteenth to the early seventeenth centuries. Setting aside traditional notions of the hierarchy of the major and minor arts, the book treats gold brocade and painting equally as exponents of the special segment of Renaissance material culture that was art. The fabrics rendered in painting reflected the tradition of actual weaving, but only to an extent, as many gold brocades were painted from imagination. Gold brocades were much more expensive than paintings; hence the two media functioned in different contexts. Gold brocade was an important element in the display of wealth and status at grand courts, while painting often formed the only affordable substitute for courtly splendour for the socially ambitious but less affluent urban upper-middle class. Their value and cultural role also meant that gold-brocaded textiles could be included in paintings both in praise of luxury and as a condemnation of it - sometimes in one and the same work. Gold brocade and Renaissance painting examines the skills artists developed for representing these lavish textiles. It uses a wide range of documents (from inventories and account books to letters, poems, educational treatises and sermons) to compare the economic value of gold brocade and painting, clarify the conditions of their use, and interpret the different messages given by brocades in different pictures. Primarily, however, the book deals with the distinction between fact and fiction, imagination and reality in the world shown in Renaissance paintings.

Living near the water is a lifelong dream for many people. So when retirement time arrives, moving to a lakeside town or seaside community is a natural inclination. The trick is to find a place to retire near the water that is reasonably priced. Here we have 35 towns that sit next to a lake, have a lake within their boundaries or are along a river or seacoast. They have a cost of living that meets the national average or is below the national average. They also have a crime rate that is equal to or below the national rate. No place is perfect, however, so we point out each town's potential drawbacks. We also look at population, climate, home prices, percentage of residents age 45 or better, medical facilities, public transportation, crime rates, political leanings and more.

Born on the 4th of July in Washington, DC, J. Olin Fischer grew up a Mississippi River boy from Missouri. Graduating from SE Missouri University, he taught ESL in Colombia and lived in the Andes 5 years. At 10,000 feet by a mountain lake with 7 waterfalls, tropical rain forest, orchids, word paintings began. Because of several years there studying Asian literature, the flowery style of lyrics soon changed to a more succinct way of expression. Painting with words became the inspiration. After experiencing 40 countries and almost that many professions, many poems born from them, J. Olin resides now in Houston, Tx. This book is "all but a small painting" for you to enjoy.
