Mannerism by John Shearman( Book )

19 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manierismo was the extreme consciousness of elegant style for its own sake, a passion which unites the cold narcissistic nudes of Bronzino, the elaborate chiselling of Benvenuto Cellini's saltcellar, and the water-games in a duke's garden
Only connect-- : art and the spectator in the Italian Renaissance by John Shearman( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Shearman makes a plea for a more engaged reading of art works of the Italian Renaissance, one that will recognize the presupposition of Renaissance artists about their viewers. His book is the first attempt to construct a history of those Renaissance paintings and sculptures that are by design completed outside themselves in or by the spectator, that embrace the spectator into their narrative plot or aesthetic functioning, and that reposition the spectator imaginatively or in time and space. He takes his lead from texts and artists of the period, for these artists reveal themselves as spectators; among modern historiographical techniques, Reception Theory is closest to the author's method, but Shearman's concern is mostly with anterior relationships with the viewer - that is, relationships conceived and constructed as part of the work's design, making, and positioning. Shearman proposes unconventional ways in which works of art may be distinguished one from another, and in which spectators may be distinguished, too, and he enlarges the accepted field of artistic invention. Furthermore, his argument reflects on the Renaissance itself. What is created in this period tends to be regarded as conventional, or inherent in the nature of painting and sculpture: he maintains that this is a careless, disengaged view that has overlooked the process of discovery by immensely inventive and visually intellectual artists

The Princeton Raphael Symposium : science in the service of art history by Princeton Raphael Symposium( Book )

11 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At an international conference in 1983 commemorating the 500th anniversary of Raphael's birth, art conservators and historians benefited from a rare opportunity to discuss with each other new data obtained from the scientific examination and treatment of an artist's works as they were being readied for exhibitions. Each paper, presented by a conservator to an audience composed mainly of art historians, focuses on one painting or group of paintings by Raphael and discusses how such approaches as infrared reflectography and studies of color technique yield useful historical insights--for example, the range and variation of technique one can expect from the painter and the play of artistic influences on his work. As a whole, these papers constitute a step toward a history of Raphael's technique, but more importantly they suggest possibilities of collaboration between art conservators and historians
