Abstract

Precious objects were the sources of pleasure, but in every case it was the particular pleasure. In fact some works of art and culture, i.e. books, tapestries, the body in the painting and sculpture, give pleasure, but every pleasure has a different meaning. This meaning will be studied in the examples of Central and Western Europe.
