  Chapter 7: Emigration and Society
On his acquisitions in pastures alone during the 1540s and 1550s Godoy probably spent over a million and a half maravedís, or 4000 ducados; and these purchases by no means represented the entirety of his holdings.
In the 1540s he bought a number of censos, including one for10,000 maravedís from the council of Cañaveral, a village belonging to Garrovillas, as well as a number of smaller censos from vecinos of Garrovillas.
In the 1530s and 1540s Cano initiated petitions for mercedes (grants or awards) from the crown, alleging that his wife had received only a portion of the patrimony due to her from her father, Moctezuma.

 European Exploration and Settlement, 1541 through 1802 - Encyclopedia of Arkansas
The region that became Arkansas was unknown to Europeans until the 1540s.
At the time of the first Spanish explorers in the 1540s, Arkansas was a land of heavily populated villages and extensive farm fields.
By the time of the first French expeditions in the 1670s, Arkansas was sparsely populated with isolated villages and tribes but with an abundance of wild game and other resources.

 Esther before Ahasuerus by TINTORETTO   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
On stylistic evidence the painting can be dated to the second half of the 1540s, close to the Last Supper of 1547 (Venice, San Marcuola) and the Miracle of Saint Mark of 1548 (Venice, Accademia).
During the 1540s Tintoretto displayed a close interest in Central Italian art, particularly the works of Michelangelo and Raphael, which he probably knew through such secondary sources as prints.
The scale of the painting accords with many of Tintoretto's undertakings dating from the 1540s including the scenes from the life of Saint Mark (Venice, Accademia) executed for the Scuola Grande di San Marco.

 Palladio - Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio :::
It was with Trissino too that Palladio made his visits to Rome in the 1540s, which opened his eyes as to the character of ancient and modern architecture in the city, which till then he would have known only through drawings and Serlio's Quarto Libro (1537) and Terzo Libro (1540).
The great difference however between these architects and Palladio was that from the late 1540s onwards the Vicentine architect makes use of a standard series of overall types, of room shapes, of forms for the orders.
This collaboration with Giulio was probably of great importance for Palladio: it gave him the opportunity to have contact with a very sophisticated and experienced architect, whose memories went back to the last years of Raphael's life.

 ::: Stair Sainty Gallery :::
Starting in the 1540s, documents consistently refer to the artist as Francesco d’Ubertino Verdi, including his death records for 5 October, 1557.
His ire was fuelled by the fact that some of these men blocked Vasari’s ambitions at the Medici ducal court in the 1540s and early 1550s, precisely the period in which the Lives were written.
Second, although Bachiacca was undeniably an expert painter of small figures and little pictures, he did not limit himself to these, as Vasari would have us believe.

It was here, in the 1540s, that the first gold-seekers arrived - Francisco Vasquez de Coronado and his band of conquistadores.
FUN FACT: The Purgatoire River was named in the 1540s after a rift occurred between two leaders of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado's army.
The expedition split into two groups, one of which was later found along the stream, dead to the last man. The place became known as the River of Purgatory because the soldiers had died without the benefit of a priest to administer last rites.

 Honduras The Spread of Colonization and the Growth of Mining - Flags, Maps, Economy, Geography, Climate, Natural ...
In the early 1540s, the center for mining shifted eastward to the Río Guayape Valley, and silver joined gold as a major product.
By the late 1540s, Honduras seemed headed for relative prosperity and influence, a development marked by the establishment in 1544 of the regional audiencia (see Glossary) of Guatemala with its capital at Gracias, Honduras.
The audiencia was a Spanish governmental unit encompassing both judicial and legislative functions whose president held the additional titles of governor and captain general (hence the alternative name of Captaincy General of Guatemala).

 Titian - A Great Master of the Portrait
In 1516 he had been named official painter to the Venetian state; thereafter he worked at the courts of Ferrara and Mantua.
In the 1530s and 1540s he travelled to Bologna to paint portraits of the Emperor Charles V and Pope Paul III, and at the Pope's behest he visited Rome and met Michelangelo.
In some portraits of the 1540s, however, Titian used his unsurpassed skills as a visual dramatist to compel the viewer's participation in the sitter's inner life.

 Art/Auctions: Important Old Master Paintings auction at Christie's, Jan. 27, 2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
As spectacular as the "Calvary" by the Master of the Death of Saint Nicholas of Munster, Lot 197, shown above, "The Crucifixion with the Virgin and Saint John with the instruments and emblems of the Passion," by Circle of the Master of the 1540s is curious.
This painting overflows with imagery from a great many sources and is quite an unusual composition both in its strong use of vertical diagonals and the strong horizontal element of the wall with a very odd, and interesting, group of people, several dressed in marvelous hats, and some oblivious to the others.
There are several existing works attributed to the Master of the 1540s, but this author is not yet familiar with them.

Antonio and Andrés Pérez of Cáceres, vecinos of Puebla de los Angeles in the 1540s and1550s, wrote to their brother Francisco Gutiérrez inviting him to join them; they also talked about their prosperity and the good life they had made for themselves.

 SparkNotes: Henry VIII: Henry's Last Years
Along with the succession, however, came the problem of faction among the king's ministers, the most prominent of which, at Henry's death, would jockey for influence over young Edward.
In the early 1540s, the Privy Council was divided into two main factions: a conservative one led by the Duke of Norfolk and the Bishop of Winchester, Stephen Gardiner, and another more sympathetic to Protestantism, headed by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, Charles Brandon, the Duke of Suffolk, and Edward Seymour, Prince Edward's uncle.
Throughout the 1540s, Henry's health was in steady decline.

In the 1540s there was also a family in Worcester, 25 miles down the Severn from Bridgnorth, which was a great centre of the woollen industry; it is likely that they were younger sons of the Crudgingtons of Newton, gone to seek their fortunes in a town with a weaving connection.

In 1523 he worked with Pontormo on painted bedroom decorations, an influential collaboration which led to Bacchiacca's emphasis on crowded surfaces and the ambiguous, subjective space characteristic of Mannerism.
By the early 1540s Bacchiacca returned to more conventional classicism based on Michelangelo's models.
By this time the second generation of Mannerists--Agnolo Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, and Francesco Salviati--had become rich sources of motifs for Bacchiacca's art.

 The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade: To the Americas
The discovery of vast silver mines in the 1540s enriched the colonial inhabitants and increased the volume of trade across the Atlantic.
Though not initially inclined to do so, other European countries sought to expand their own empires and trading systems and soon joined the Spanish and Portuguese in the Americas.
The discovery of silver mines in Peru in the 1540s boosted trade across the Atlantic as booty hunters made their fortunes.

 Thomas Tallis
In fact, during the late 1530s and early 1540s government policy on religion was astonishingly unpredictable and sometimes contradictory, and this must have had an extremely unsettling effect on church music.
He was a member of this choir during what must have been a very busy period while it rapidly built up an impressive and markedly conservative musical repertory.
It is interesting to note that during the early 1540s Canterbury was a centre of fierce religious controversy: while the archbishop, Thomas Cranmer, was a leading advocate of religious reform, several influential members of the cathedral chapter were staunchly traditionalist (they were soon to attempt to prosecute their archbishop for heresy).

 Jessamyn's Regency Costume Companion: Florentine gentleman
If for some reason it doesn't work out, I'll have to go to plan B, which is to cheat and steal a style element from the 1540s: lower sleeves in a coordinating (or even contrasting) fabric.
Around the 1540s, like everyone else, the Italians seem to have begun boning their bodices.
The partlets and jewelry of the 1540s and '50s seem to have been largely the same across Italy, so although it's Venetian, I am showing the fresco detail at left because it combines a partlet and jewelry similar to Florentine examples I like with a fabric reminiscent of mine (which I find encouraging!).
