Offer a fresh view of both the Scentific Revolution and northern Renaissance art, connecting craft, alchemy, naturalism and experiment to an epistemology of the labouring body, struggling to shape nature and thereby learn its deepest secrets.
A brilliant and beautiful book, an elegant addition to any scholar's shelf. It makes the necesary next move of bringing the recent scholarlship on science and art together by examining the influence of artisans who sustained and promoted art and science. Smith makes a powerful case for the unity of art and sceince, now disparate fields, in their early modern incarnations.--Leo Gershoy Prize "American Historical Association "
