Interrelated through marriage (Cooper's diagram of their relationships looks like a wiring diagram for a B-52) and drawn together by similar intellectual, political, and religious attitudes, the supporters of Palladio held particularly powerful positions in the Venetian state during the dogate of Alvise Mocenigo (1570-77), when Palladio was commissioned to design an important room in the Ducal Palace as well as Il Redentore.
In comparison to volumes such as Gino Benzoni's I Dogi (Milan, 1982) and Wolfgang Wolter's Storia e politica nei dipinti di Palazzo Ducale (Venice, 1987), which are two of the more comprehensive treatments of the Venetian dogate and its manifestation in the arts and public life, this book concentrates on the development of dogal portraiture alone.
