Late Titian and the sensuality of painting by Titian( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mid-sixteenth century, at almost 60 years of age, Titian invented a new way of painting: the paint was applied to the canvas rapidly and freely and overlaid with brushstrokes that were both light and dense: the forms broke up and a great sensuality and profound spirituality became evident. Titian used an extraordinarily prescient technique to create engaging, stirring painting that in some ways seems to relate to the literary work of the poet Torquato Tasso and even take up the imaginary writings of Ludovico Ariosto published in Venice in the 1530s. Such a painting style had never previously been imagined and was so revolutionary that it was to influence many artists of subsequent centuries through to the modern age. Late Titian became the yardstick not only for younger contemporary painters like Tintoretto, Veronese and Bassano, but also great artists of subseqent cewnturies like Rubens, Rembandt, Velazquez, Gericault and Delacroix and on to the Expressionists

Imperial treasures : Van Eyck, Gossaert, Bruegel : masterpieces from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna by Sylvia Ferino-Pagden( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is home to one of the world's most important collections of early Netherlandish painting. The origin of those rich holdings can be traced back to 1477, when the Burgundian Netherlands became a Habsburg possession on Mary of Burgundy's marriage to Archduke Maximilian of Austria. Imperial Treasures. Masterpieces from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is the fruit of the outstanding exhibition of the same name at the Groeningemuseum in Bruges. The book is devoted to a unique selection of fifteenth and sixteenth-century masterpieces from the Low Countries in the museum's collection. In a series of essays by leading scholars, it explores the history of the collection and the emergence of the various pictorial genres. The exceptionally early development of history, portrait, landscape and genre painting in the Low Countries laid the foundations for the unprecedented flowering of both Flemish and Dutch painting in the seventeenth century."--Publisher's website

Dieser Katalog widmet sich dem Blick des Künstlers auf den Menschen am Übergang vom Spätmittelalter zur Frühen Neuzeit im deutschen Sprachraum. Hochkarätige Kunstwerke - darunter Gemälde Albrecht Dürers, Lucas Cranachsd. Ä. und Hans Holbeins d.J. sowie Meisterwerke der Bildhauerei und Zeichenkunst - zeigen, wie der Mensch um 1500 ins Zentrum des künstlerischen Interesses rückte und Künstler zu Entdeckern und Erfindern des Menschen avancierten.
