Fra Angelico : heaven on earth by Angelico( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying the exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, this catalogue explores one of the most important artists of the Renaissance. Fra Angelico (c. 1395-1455) transformed painting in Florence with pioneering images, rethinking popular compositions and investing traditional Christian subjects with new meaning. His altarpieces and frescoes set new standards for quality and ingenuity, contributing to Angelico's unparalleled fame on the Italian peninsula. With the intellect of a Dominican theologian, the technical facility of Florence's finest craftsmen and the business acumen of its shrewdest merchants, he shaped the future of painting in Italy and beyond. The exhibition reunites for the first time Fra Angelico's four reliquaries for Santa Maria Novella (1424-34; Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Museo di San Marco, Florence). Together they cover key episodes in the life of the Virgin Mary and capture in miniature some of his most important compositional innovations. Assembled at the Gardner with exceptional examples of Angelico's narrative paintings from collections in Europe and the United States, this exhibition explores his celebrated talents as a storyteller and the artistic contributions that shaped a new ideal of painting in Florence. Exhibition: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, USA, (22.02.-28.05.2018)
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum : a guide by Christina Nielsen( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is world renowned for a superb collection of over 10,000 objects that range from ancient Chinese bronzes to Renaissance tapestries, from paintings by Raphael and Rubens to those of Whistler and Matisse. This guidebook charts new pathways through the beloved institution and tells the story its founder, a trail-blazing American who was among the most prominent patrons of her day. Isabella Stewart Gardner built a Venetian-inspired palazzo in Boston to house her exquisite and thought-provoking arrangement of art objects from diverse cultures and periods of history to share with the world. she hosted luminaries in the worlds of music, dance, and literature and supported such famed artists as Henry James and John Singer Sargent. Exploring the museum room by room, the authors of this book look at masterpieces by Botticelli, Rembrandt, Titian, and others, as well as hidden treasures, including often overlooked decorative arts, collected letters, and photographs. Rather than positioning the museum simply as a historical gem, they present it as a site for forging connections between past and present and reinforcing the founder's legacy of sustaining contemporary art, music, and education with initiatives supported by space in the New Wing designed by Renzo Piano and constructed in 2012. Featuring spectacular photography, the book captures this unique museum, helping us consider anew what the museum meant in Gardner's time and what it means in ours
Piero della Francesca in America : from Sansepolcro to the East Coast by Nathaniel Silver( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Legend of the True Cross fresco cycle in the Church of San Francesco at Arezzo is the cornerstone of Piero della Francesca's modern fame ... In Piero della Francesca in America, the first monographic exhibition on the artist in the United States, seven magnificent paintings evoke, on an intimate scale, the Arezzo experience. Surrouned by a small constellation of Piero's works, Frick audiences can refine their encounter with his exacting designs and magisterial brushwork."--"Foreword", p. 7
Botticelli : heroines and heroes( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Botticelli: Heroines and Heroes explores the work of the legendary Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, focusing on a genre called spalliera that Botticelli employed with staggering originality. The catalgue and exhibition, held at the Gardner Museum, Boston, include significant loans from European and American public collections. 0Accompanying the exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, this catalogue explores the work of legendary Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli (about 1444-1510). Today the alluring and enigmatic Primavera forms the cornerstone of his modern fame, but its familiarity belies distant origins in the heady intellectual environment of Laurentian Florence and the residences of its moneyed elite. Part of a genre called spalliera, so named for their installation around shoulder (spalla) height, this type of painting introduced beautiful, strange, and disturbing images into lavish Florentine homes. With staggering originality, Botticelli reinvented ancient subjects for the domestic interior, paneling patrician bedrooms with moralizing tales and offering erudite instruction to their influential inhabitants.00Exhibition: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, USA (14.02.- 19.05.2019)
