This second volume of the collected academic papers of Roy Strong, the distinguished scholar and art historian of the Tudor and early Stuart eras, covers the Elizabethan period. Included here are over twenty articles he has written over thirty-five years on subjects which he has pioneered, the serious study of pageantry, painting, miniatures, gardening and iconography. Each articles is reprinted verbatim but with an introduction giving an update as to what has happened since, including full bibliographical notes. Brought together for the first time, the plates alone provide a visual repertory of the age on a scale not seen for a long time, including much that is new. Sir ROY STRONGwas Director of theVictoria and Albert Museum from 1974 to 1987, prior to which he was Director of the National Portrait Gallery.
