Summary
Overlooked in traditional studies of Italian art, cassone painting was nonetheless a popular genre in Renaissance Tuscany. Made by little-known or anonymous painters for largely undocumented patrons, these decorated chests display "high-art" subject matter, a contradiction that has discouraged their study. Drawing on historical context and poststructuralist textual interpretation, Cristelle Baskins argues that these furniture paintings played an important role in the socialization and gender formation of women in early modern Italy
