Leonardo da Vinci, anatomist by Leonardo( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Renaissance, but he was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy. He intended to publish his ground-breaking work in a treatise on anatomy, and had he done so his discoveries would have transformed European knowledge of the subject. But on Leonardo's death in 1519 the drawings remained a mass of undigested material among his private papers and their significance was effectively lost to the world for almost 400 years

The Northern Renaissance : Dürer to Holbein by Kate Heard( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Northern Renaissance in Europe was a period of rapid social and religious change. This book discusses works by Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein--two of the greatest masters of the northern Renaissance--together with a selection of paintings by Lucas Cranach. Encompassing portraiture, religion, mythology, and allegory, these works are examined alongside others by such masters as Francois Clouet, Jan Gossaert and Joos van Cleve. Holbein's superlative drawings of members of the court of King Henry VIII can be seen side-by-side with finished paintings and miniatures of the same sitters; and this survey also includes illuminated manuscripts and early printed books. Exhibition: Queen's Gallery, The Palace of Holyroodhouse (April 2011) and at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace (October 2012)

Holbein and the Court of Henry VIII : the Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, 1978-1979 by England) Queen's Gallery (London( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The drawings, paintings and miniatures by Hans Holbein the Younger shown in the present exhibition constitute perhaps the most remarkable visual record of a royal court in European art. They are the work of one of the greatest portrait painters of all time and they represent most of the types of people associated with the court of King Henry VIII, whether as members of his family, officials, soldiers, politicians, humanists or friends. The portraits include images of those who served the King well though they were often rewarded with ingratitude, as well as those who treated him with servility in order to futher their own careers . . . The chief abgsentee is the King himself. Sadly the Royal Collection contains no original portrait of him whether drawn or painted, by Holbein. -- Introduction

Victoria & Albert : art & love by London. Royal Collection( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major contribution to the studies of the Victorian era explores the period from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to Prince Albert's death in 1861. These were the times when Buckingham Palace was known as 'the headquarters of taste', when royal patronage was still an essential part in a successful artistic career, and when the royal couple were passionately involved together in the artistic life of the nation." "Victoria and Albert were enthusiastic patrons of the arts throughout their marriage, commissioning and collecting works from both British and European artists. This book reveals the closeness of their relationships with particular artist - Landseer, Gibson, Marochetti, Winterhalter, Dyce, Gruner and Triqueti - and in over 450 colour illustrations examines the complete range of their extensive personal collection, from Old Master paintings to sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. This book also features their own artistic work, from paintings, drawings and etchings to the souvenir albums lovingly assembled to record and commemorate their family life." "In addition, both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert viewed their roles as patrons of the arts as being part of the public duties of the monarchy, and as a reflection of the artistic life of the nation as a whole. Victoria & Albert Art & love includes new research not only on the couple's private commissions, but also on their involvement in the ground breaking 'Great Exhibition' in 1851"--Jacket
Dutch landscapes by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses examples of the different types of Dutch landscapes painted in the 17th century. From the human narrative within painted landscape ranging from peasants working and relaxing to aristocratic estates where nobles hunted and rode; to Dutch artists discovering the idealised Arcadian landscape influenced by travel to Italy; to the sea which played such a vital role in Dutch consciousness. Dutch masters Isaac van Ostade, Philips Wouwermans, Paulus Potter, Jacob van Ruisdael, the Van de Veldes and Aelbert Cuyp are all included as representative of the Dutch Golden Age.--Publisher
Bruegel to Rubens : masters of Flemish painting by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is said that much of the greatest art is produced during periods of strife. In the mid-sixteenth century, the Netherlands - the United Provinces in the north (modern Holland) and the Spanish-ruled south (modern Belgium) - was the most sophisticated society in Europe, but its learning and luxury industries were all but annihilated by the so-called Dutch Revolt and the Eighty Years War that followed (1568-1648). Two-thirds of the works discussed here were painted during this turbulent period, including Pieter Bruegel's Massacre of the Innocents of 1567. Other highlights include works by his son Jan Brueghel, while the Twelve Year Truce (1609-21) is celebrated by a group of landscapes (including three by Rubens) depicting the blessings of peace and the fertility of the region." "During the Renaissance the Low Countries attained a flawless technique of painting and the highest standards of craftsmanship. This tradition survived during even the worst years of the war. Everyone is familiar with the Golden Age of Dutch art; this is an opportunity to explore its no less glorious Flemish counterpart."--Jacket

Masters of the everyday : Dutch artists in the age of Vermeer by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the seventeenth century, Dutch artists were unparalleled in their dedication to depicting ordinary people doing everyday things. Genre painting was the preeminent expression of this dedication, offering candid glimpses into the peasant cottages and village courtyards of the Dutch Golden Age, each painting lit with the period's vibrant color palette and rich with radiant natural light. This superb collection by the curators of an accompanying exhibition focuses on a selection of thirty-six works of Dutch genre painting from the Royal Collection's holdings. Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, Gerrit Dou, Gabriel Metsu, and Pieter de Hooch are among the masters whose works are finely reproduced here. While the subject matter may be ordinary--the preparation of food, the bustle of a busy market, the enjoyment of taverns and town festivities--the meticulously documented details often allude to a work's deeper meaning or to moral messages that would have been familiar to the contemporary viewer
Castiglione : lost genius by Timothy J Standring( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter and printmaker Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (1609--64) was one of the most technically superb and innovative artists of the Italian Baroque. Although he is best known for his evocative etchings that reveal a mastery of light to rival that of Rembrandt and Van Dyck, he also redefined the drawing and printmaking genres through the introduction of his monotyping technique and was among the first to conceive of the oil sketch as a finished work. Sadly, Castiglione's prolific artistic output has been largely overshadowed by his turbulent character and troubled private life. With this lavishly illustrated biography, leading Castiglione scholar Timothy J. Standring and curator Martin Clayton and seek to restore to prominence this forgotten master of the Italian Baroque. Drawing on extensive new research into court records and other documents of the time, Standring and Clayton have reconstructed the artist's life, from his arrest for murder that led to the estrangement of his contemporaries and the loss of valuable patrons to his eventual decision to flee the region. The story of Castiglione's life and important new discoveries about his art are presented here alongside one hundred brilliant reproductions of his oil sketches..."--Publisher description

The first Georgians : art & monarchy, 1714-1760 by Royal Collection (Great Britain)( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2014 marks the three-hundredth anniversary of the succession of the House of Hanover to the British throne. In celebration of this historic milestone, The First Georgians explores the rich artistic culture of the early Hanoverian period. It is easy to forget, when we think of the Georgian period, that it began with the unprecendented choice by Parliament of a new sovereign. The first Georges ruled a country where notions of Englishness, the rule of law and the principles of freedom in speech, trade and religion were emerging into life. By the end of the Georgian period, these principles were enshrined both in the constitution and in national consciousness. The First Georgians examines this revolutionary period in English life through the art and architecture of the time and the patronage and taste-setting of this new English royal family. This publication showcases more than three hundred of the finest works of this period, many of which have never been on public display before. Created in Germany, France, Italy and Britain during one of the most dramatic periods of change across all aspects of political, intellectual and cultural life, they reflect changing views of science, politics and art throughout the early to mid-eighteenth century the period when Britain became a world power and established its modern identity
Canaletto & the art of Venice by Rosie Razzall( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Royal Collection has one of the largest and finest collections of Venetian art from the first half of the eighteenth century. It includes paintings, prints and drawings by Canaletto himself, as well as those of his contemporaries, such as Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Antonio Visentini, Francesco Zuccarelli and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. These artists were patronised by Consul Smith and their works were later purchased by George III. This lavishly illustrated catalogue marks the first time that the rich holdings of eighteenth-century Venetian art in the Royal Collection will have been brought together, and focuses on presenting these extraordinary works against the background of the social and artistic networks of the period. Whilst displaying and analysing the brilliant works of Canaletto himself, including his cityscapes, capriccios and paintings of architecture, this catalogue also discusses the intimate interior of Venetian life, explores the links between artists and the theatre in Venice at this time and looks at Venice as a centre for printmaking and book production
