Summary

Chapter 4 narrows the focus to representations of architecture in selected scenes from the Tornabuoni Chapel, frescoed by Domenico Ghirlandaio in 1486–1490. The chapter argues that the patron Giovanni Tornabuoni, in collaboration with Ghirlandaio, created a new visual image of his native Florence, one that reflected the political aspirations and architectural ideals of the dominant Medici family.
