Summary:
"Analyses the portraits and personal imagery of the renowned 'father of arts and letters', Francis I, one of the most frequently portrayed rulers of sixteenth-century Europe. In providing a valuable point of comparison with publications on the representation of Henry VIII, the book makes a meaningful contribution to scholarship on the enterprise of royal image-making and the practice of visual rhetoric in the courts of early modern Europe."--Page [4] of cover.
