The School of Prague: Painting at the Court of Rudolf IIThomas DaCosta KaufmannUniversity of Chicago Press, 1988
The School of Prague provides both a much-needed catalogue raisonné of painting in Rudolfine Prague and a significant reassessment of Renaissance art theory and practice. Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann masterfully reconstructs the Prague court, discussing the "mannerist" art it patronized and the artists who were active in it. The book was awarded the 1988 Mitchell Prize.
