Giovanna Garzoni (1600–1670) was an Italian painter who was prominent in Europe during the Baroque period. Garzoni started her career painting religious, mythological, and allegorical subjects but became famous for her works with tempera and watercolors of botanical subjects. The artist rose to prominence due to her precision and balance with space and scientific realism of her subjects. Garzoni was often called the Chaste Giovanna due to her vow to remain a virgin.

Italy has enriched civilization for centuries, and nowhere more so than Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance. Arts and science flourished under the patronage of the ruling Medici family, whose name alone conjures a world of intrigue, opulence, and splendor. It was this world that lured the artist Giovanna Garzoni to Florence, where she became court miniaturist to the Medici. Her "gentle art" of still-life, flower, and portrait painting, only recently reappraised by art historians, reflects a tranquil and timeless beauty. To complement the artist's delightful still lifes of fruits and vegetables, Lorenza de'Medici has contributed a delectable array of Tuscan recipes, drawing from the fresh ingredients and rustic simplicity for which the cuisine is renowned. Added to these are a selection of period writings evoking the past glories of Florence--the banquets, the festivities, and the wondrous excess. Finally, there are accounts by early travelers discovering the beauty and sensuality of Italy for the first time, a pleasure no less diminished today.

One could just sit and read this lovely book. Too bad it's out of print.
