The second quarter of the sixteenth century witnessed the emergence of a new fashion of armor design based on the forms and ornament found in classical art. Embossed in high relief; richly gilt; and damascened in gold and silver; these lavish parade armors all'antica were worn by Renaissance kings and captains who wished to project an aura of power and virtue by arraying themselves like the heroes of ancient Roman history and mythology. The re-creation of classically inspired armor is invariably associated with Filippo Negroli; the most innovative and celebrated of the renowned armorers of Milan. The core of the book is a thorough reexamination of all the armors signed by Filippo Negroli. Additional works are attributed to him; and lost works are identified. The authors confirm the attribution of two magnificently damascened armors to Francesco Negroli; and they present Giovan Paolo Negroli's single signed work along with pieces they consider to be his. Each armor is described; illustrated; and placed in the context of the maker's oeuvre; its history of ownership is discussed; and its treatment in the critical literature is assessed.
