Siena and the Angevins, 1300-1350: Art, Diplomacy, and Dynastic Ambition - New publication

The book cover for Professor Diana Norman's book Siena and the Angevins

The book, published by Professor Diana Norman, examines Siena’s relationship with and representation of the Angevin dynasty, the cadet branch of the French royal house established in southern Italy in 1266.

It focuses not only on the work of Sienese artists, who were the recipients of Angevin commissions, but also on political and diplomatic relations between a major European royal court and a Tuscan city state.

As remarked by one reviewer: ‘Norman’s book goes beyond the archival as well as beyond the regional; indeed, it goes ‘global medieval’ in the best ways, revealing the wide, multinational network of the Angevins’.
