Palazzo Strozzi hosts an extraordinary exhibition dedicated to Florentine art of the latter 1500s, the last act of a trilogy dedicated to 16th-century art in Florence, which began with Bronzino in 2010 and Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino in 2014. The Cinquecento in Florence, confronts the development of Florentine art in the second half of the century through paintings and sculptures by artists including Andrea del Sarto, Bronzino, Pontormo, Giorgio Vasari, Giambologna, Bartolomeo Ammannati and Santi di Tito. The exhibition, and this accompanying catalogue, also provides the opportunity to restore important works of art and to construct a wide network of collaboration between museums, cultural institutions and Florentine and Tuscan sites. The result is a celebration of an exceptional cultural epoch of intellectual inspiration marked by the Council of Trent during the Counter-Reformation, and by Francesco I de'Medici, one of the most brilliant representatives of courtly patronage in Europe.

The aim of the curators has been to recapture the experience of viewing Smith's work during his lifetime, when it was deployed in ever-changing arrangements in his fields at Bolton Landing in the Adirondacks. The book recreates the scene at Bolton landing. An essay by Smith's daughter, Candida, captures in personal and direct terms the man himself, his struggles and delights, and the intensity of his working life. This is followed by a memoir from Irving Sandler and reminiscences by friends of the artist. The text is accompanied by photographs by fellow artists and by Smith himself.
Linda Benedict-Jones, the Curator of the Polaroid Collection said I know of no other photographer who has celebrated one of our Great Lakes in such a thoroughly compelling fashion. Part of the collection resulted from a 1200 mile, 100 day kayak trip around Lake Superior that Blacklock made in 1991. Accessible only by boat, many of these are places most of us will visit only through his work. The mastery of the photographer captures the magic of the lake as no one else has done.
