The portrait in the Renaissance by John Wyndham Pope-Hennessy( Book )

71 editions published between 1963 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here John Pope-Hennessy takes as his subject two centuries of experiment in portraiture during the Renaissance. He shows how the Renaissance cult of individuality brought with it a demand that the features of the individual be perpetuated. This concept was first manifested in the portraits that fill the great Florentine fresco cycles and led, later in the fifteenth century, to the creation of the independent portrait by such artists as Botticelli, Antonio Pollaiuolo, Giovanni Bellini, and Antonello da Messina. The author goes on to describe the process by which Titian and the great artists of the High Renaissance transformed the portrait from a record of appearance into an analysis of character."--Amazon

Donatello : sculptor by John Wyndham Pope-Hennessy( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in 3 languages and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donatello: sculptor is, moreover, not just a catalogue of the artist's works, but a fluently written, meticulously researched narrative, based on more than half a century of study by one of the world's outstanding scholars. John Pope Hennessy published his first article on Donatello in 1949, and in the more than fifty years that have followed he has continued to write on, lecture about, look at, and puzzle over this most challenging of artists. "My intention," the author writes, "when I started working on this book, was to describe what is conventionally known as an artistic personality. But ineluctably the artistic personality became an individual. With Donatello the relation between art and life is very close. Without some sense of his creative intentions, in the context of the society in which he lived, his work cannot be understood. This is a monograph, but is also, in embryo, a biography."

The Piero della Francesca trail by John Wyndham Pope-Hennessy( Book )

33 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic guide to Piero della Francesca's work, John Pope-Hennessy takes the paintings and frescoes one by one, describing the stories they portray, their meticulous composition and the questions about them that remain unanswered. He explains the new ideas in the air in 1439 when the young Piero joined his first studio as well as the crucial and surprising role of fate in the commission for the church of San Francisco." "This volume brings together for the first time this essential text and Aldous Huxley's "The Best Picture," the famous essay that inspired Pope-Hennessy to seek out the works that now constitute the pilgrimage known as The Piero della Francesca Trail."--Jacket
