Andrea del Sarto : the Renaissance workshop in action by Julian Brooks( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Renaissance artist Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530) rivals Leonardo da Vinci as one of history's most accomplished draftsmen. Moving beyond the graceful elegance of his contemporaries, such as Raphael and Fra Bartolommeo, he brought unprecedented realism to his drawings through the rough and rustic use of chalk in his powerfully rendered life and compositional studies. With an immediacy few other Renaissance artists possess, del Sarto's work has proven to be inspirational and compelling to later audiences, with admirers such as Degas and Redon. This lavishly illustrated book reveals del Sarto's dazzling inventiveness and creative process, presenting fifty core drawings on paper together with a handful of paintings. The first publication to look to del Sarto's working practice through a close examination of his art from across all the world's major collections, this volume analyzes new studies of his panel underdrawings as well. The depth and breadth of its research make this book an important contribution to the study of del Sarto and Florentine Renaissance workshop practice."--Publisher's description
Andrea Riccio : Renaissance master of bronze by Denise Allen( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This scholarly catalogue accompanies The Frick Collection's Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze, the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Andrea Briosco, called Riccio. Although Riccio is acknowledged to be one of the greatest bronze sculptors of the Renaissance, he is still understudied, and the last monograph dedicated to him dates from 1927. Current Riccio scholarship has tended to be narrowly focused, and suffers from the presupposition that Riccio was primarily an antiquarian whose sculptures satisfied the erudite tastes of a closed circle of Paduan humanist collectors. Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze dramatically challenges these outdated perceptions." "The catalogue features essays by the organizing curators and leading scholars on Riccio's life and career, Riccio and the small bronze as art form, as well as a technical study of his casting technique. It includes detailed scholarly entries for each sculpture and is richly illustrated with new photography. By providing a cogent image of Riccio's autograph production, this catalogue offers an essential first step for future Riccio studies."--Jacket
In a new light : Giovanni Bellini's "St. Francis in the Desert" by Susannah Rutherglen( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giovanni Bellini's St. Francis in the Desert is a masterpiece of Venetian Renaissance art that has inspired generations of visitors to The Frick Collection. This monumental panel painting portrays Francis of Assisi, the medieval Christian saint who renounced earthly riches to embrace a humble existence of poverty, prayer, and obedience to the Gospels. Departing from canonical representations of the holy man's life and miracles, Bellini has imagined Francis alone in a mountainous wilderness, stepping forward from his simple shelter into a golden light that seems to transfigure him spiritually. For centuries, viewers have puzzled over the work's meaning--seeking explanations in a variety of pictorial and textual sources. Until recently, however, the artist's practical conception and realization of this extraordinary vision have remained largely unexplored. In a New Light presents the collective findings of an unprecedented technical examination of St. Francis in the Desert. Following a series of in-depth analyses--including infrared reflectography, X-radiography, microscopy, and paint sampling--an international group of specialists considered the artist's working process and its implications for the picture's meaning. Their findings provide a "glimpse over Bellini's shoulder" and open new avenues of research into Venetian Renaissance painting and its cultural and religious context. Also published here for the first time are recently discovered documents pertaining to the provenance of St. Francis in the Desert during the nineteenth century, as well as synthetic studies of the work's Franciscan milieu and early history."--Publisher's description
Masterpieces of painting in the J. Paul Getty Museum by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The J. Paul Getty Museum's paintings collection ranges from the fourteenth to the end of the nineteenth century. Among the finest examples of early Renaissance painting are the Madonna and Child by the Master of Saint Cecilia, Masaccio's Saint Andrew, and Gentile da Fabriano's richly painted Coronation of the Virgin. Typical of the High Renaissance are Andrea Mantegna's splendid Adoration of the Magi and Fra Bartolommeo's Rest on the Flight into Egypt. The art of the Netherlands in its Golden Age is represented by Jan Brueghel's much-loved painting The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark and by The Return from War, which he painted with Peter Paul Rubens, as well as a newly acquired and magnificent landscape by Hobbema, Rembrandt's Abduction of Europa, and Jan Steen's Drawing Lesson. Painting in France ranges from recently accessioned works by Poussin, Fragonard, and Lancret, through the Impressionism of Monet's seminal Sunrise and his Rowen Cathedral, while the modern age is exemplified by the Irises of Vincent van Gogh, Fernand Khnopff's Jeanne Kefer, and Cezanne's Still Life with Apples."--BOOK JACKET
Antico : the golden age of Renaissance bronzes by Eleonora Luciano( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pier Jacopo Alari Bonacolsi, known as Antico (c. 1455-1528), exemplifies the Renaissance passion for the revival of antiquity. Antico was proficient in all manner of antique art, which he studied, restored, and re-created with unparalleled skill. His gilded and silvered statuettes, made for the Gonzaga rulers at the court of Mantua, pioneered the genre of bronzes made in multiples....Antico's bronze inventions in turn promoted the iconic status of statuary from antiquity, such as the Apollo Belvedere discovered in Rome in the only available English-language monograph on the sculptor....Featuring a series of essays, the book provides an overview of Antico's career and addresses topics ranging from the chronology of his works to his understanding of the antique, his relationship with Mantuan humanism and Mantegna, his portraiture, aspects of his technique, and his artistic significance."--Front inside flap of dust jacket
Renaissance & Baroque bronzes from the Hill Collection by Patricia Wengraf( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hills' taste centers on the Florentine bronze, but their interests range to superb examples from northern Italy and Rome, as well as those from France and northern Europe. Giambologna, the great Flemish sculptor practicing in Florence in the late sixteenth century, is revered for the subtlety of his compositions and for his technical ability. He is well represented in the Hill collection through works from his own hand and those cast after his models by his assistant - and master in his own right - Antonio Susini."--"Director's foreword", p 8
