Luis Meléndez : master of the Spanish still life by Gretchen A Hirschauer( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Meléndez (1715-1780) is today recognized as the premier still-life painter in eighteenth-century Spain, indeed one of the greatest in all of Europe. He is widely heralded for his virtuoso paintings of everyday objects rendered with exacting detail, marvelous effects of color and light, and subtle variations in texture. Featuring paintings from collections worldwide, this lavishly illustrated book showcases thirty-one still lifes by Meléndez, among them several previously unpublished works. Individual painting entries incorporate fascinating technical images along with close-up reproductions. Essays provide an overview of the artist's life and work, a discussion of period objects depicted in Meléndez's still lifes, and an explanation of technical discoveries. The book as a whole illuminates both the art history and technique behind an ingenious body of work. -- From publisher's description
The flowering of Florence : botanical art for the Medici by Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi( Book )

24 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Living immersed in landscapes of great natural beauty, Tuscans have always harboured a deep love of flowers and gardens. During the Renaissance, in intellectual circles, this propensity developed naturally into an interest in horticulture and the botanical sciences, subjects that would coexist in perfect harmony with the Medici family's love of the arts." "The Flowering of Florence is published in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, to coincide with an exhibition of about sixty-five works of art primarily from Florentine collections. This handsome volume explores the close ties between art and natural sciences in Tuscany as seen in the botanical renderings created in Florence for the Medici grand dukes from the late 1500s through the early 1700s."--Jacket
Piero di Cosimo : the poetry of painting in Renaissance Florence by Gretchen A Hirschauer( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1462, an auspicious time for hopeful young painters in Renaissance Florence, Piero di Cosimo left the city's artistic landscape forever changed upon his death in 1522. The singular vision of this highly esteemed painter is beautifully presented in this important publication, which accompanies the first-ever retrospective of di Cosimo's astonishing career. A contemporary of luminaries such as Botticelli, Leonardo and Michelangelo, Piero di Cosimo was regarded in his day as a creative spirit of uncommon imagination. As a poet his fantastic inventions rivalled the verses of the shining lights of ancient Greece and Rome, whose myths and allegories he set out to transform in a strange language all his own. As a masterful painter of both sacred and profane subjects he could flit between complex, crowded compositions and scenes of intimate, tranquil lyricism. This groundbreaking publication demonstrates di Cosimo's range through in-depth discussions of individual works that help to substantiate specific interpretations and cases of authorship while also addressing the broader social and religious functions of image-making in the period. This unique publication makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a true Italian master, arguably Renaissance art's most spellbinding storyteller
Verrocchio, sculptor and painter of Renaissance Florence( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435 -1488) was one of the most versatile and inventive artists of the Italian Renaissance. He created art across media, from his spectacular sculptures and paintings to his work in goldsmithing, architecture, and engineering. His expressive, confident drawings provide a key point of contact between sculpture and painting. He led a vibrant workshop where he taught young artists who later became some of the greatest painters of the period, including Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Lorenzo di Credi, and Domenico Ghirlandaio.0This beautifully illustrated book presents the first comprehensive survey of Verrocchio's art, spanning his entire career and featuring some fifty sculptures, paintings, and drawings, in addition to works he created with his students. Through incisive scholarly essays, in-depth catalog entries, and breathtaking illustrations, this volume draws on the latest research in art history to show why Verrocchio was one of the most innovative and influential of all Florentine artists.00Exhibition: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, USA (15.09.2019-12.01.2020)
