The taking of Pisa - unknown Florentine master of the 1460s

Detail of left.


A mid-15th-century siege scene showing a tented camp in the field. In the background a siege-gunner is setting off a bombard. While the condottieri preferred not to expend their energies in lengthy sieges, it was sometimes necessary to do so. The colours of the tents and the richly caparisoned horsemen are nothing less than luxuriant. (Detail from The Taking of Pisa by an unknown Florentine master of the 1460s).
