"The enseigne, emblem of faith and distinction, is the most characteristic masculine adornment of the early Renaissance period, disclosing as it does aspects of a wearer's personality. Only a few have survived, compared to the many known from portraits of the original owners. Therefore enseignes and portraiture are considered together on these pages."
