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

49 editions published between 1963 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,561 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."--Pub desc

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

20 editions published between 1983 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years many of Donatello's sculptures have been transformed by cleaning. As a result, the Donatello we see now is a different Donatello from the one discussed by earlier scholars. In this book cleaned sculptures are reproduced in their cleaned state. The once neglected stucco reliefs in the Old Sacristy of San Lorenzo radiate the majesty and the vividness they possessed in the fifteenth century. The Coscia monument in the Baptistry in Florence shines with its original gilt, and the great St. Mark from Or San Michele has reassumed its lifelike character. Donatello's wooden sculptures - the Baptist in Venice and the Magdalen in Florence - are presented here freed from the overpaint which previously covered them. This book will remain the standard work on Donatello for many years to come

Sculpture: Renaissance to rococo by H Keutner( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« The great period of western European culture that begins with the Renaissance about 1400 and ends with the Rococo about 1780 can truly be called "The Golden Age" of figurative art, and especially of sculpture. Never have sculptors risen to higher levels of achievement, nor has their influence been more widely felt. During the Middle Ages sculptors were concerned with illustrating and expounding the concepts of Christianity. In the modern era they have devoted themselves to secular subjects. But in the centuries between, from the fifteenth century to the French Revolution, artists had to be masters of both religious and secular art, and be prepared to represent Classical concepts side by side, and even to intermingle the two in their works. Donatello, Michelangelo and Bernini, Pilon and Girardon, Berruguete and Cano, Schlüter and Günther, Duquesnoy, Gibbons, and Roubilliac are some of the famous sculptors of the period ; around them were gathered a great many others who successfully fulfilled an unparalleled variety of creative tasks. The attempt to achieve a balance between the rediscovered world of nature and antiquity on the one hand, and Christian tradition on the other, created stresses which enriched their artistic endeavours and stimulated the evolution of new techniques and forms – new forms that are classified today as Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque and Rococo. In a sound text and with a wealth of illustrations, the author vividly portrays the richness of this distinctive Western period and provides new insight into the special problems which confronted the sculptors of this era. »--

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

24 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 624 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
