Issued in conjunction with a 2015-2016 exhibition of art pieces related to "the queen without a crown," French noblewoman Louise of Savoy (1476-1531), the mother of King Francis I of France. Often forgotten in history books, Louise is credited here with instilling in her famous son an appreciation of the arts.

Includes a family genealogy, a chronology, and selected bibliography. A nice intersection of history and art. (Inventory #: 154654)
