Arcimboldo visual jokes, natural history, and still-life painting by Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Giuseppe Arcimboldo's most famous paintings, grapes, fish, and even the beaks of birds form human hair. A pear stands in for a man's chin. Citrus fruits sprout from a tree trunk that doubles as a neck. All sorts of natural phenomena come together on canvas and panel to assemble the strange heads and faces that constitute one of Renaissance art's most striking oeuvres. The first major study in a generation of the artist behind these remarkable paintings, Arcimboldo tells the singular story of their creation.℗¡ ℗¡Drawing on his thirty-five-year engagement with the artist, Thomas DaCosta Kaufman
The mastery of nature : aspects of art, science, and humanism in the Renaissance by Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Responding to ongoing debates over the role of humanism in the rise of empirical science, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann explores the history of Renaissance art to help explain the complex beginnings of the "scientific revolution." In a rich collection of new and previously published essays addressing conceptions of the mastery of nature, he discusses the depiction of nature in works of art, scientific approaches to understanding the world, and imperial claims to world control. This interdisciplinary approach elucidates the varying ways art, science, and humanism interact." "This book contains a new assessment of the origins of trompe l'oeil illumination in manuscript painting in response to religious devotional practices; an account of the history of shadow projection in art theory in relation to perspective, astronomy, and optics; an analysis of poems by the painter Georg Hoefnagel demonstrating how religious, philosophical, and political concerns impinge on questions of imitation; ground-breaking interpretations of Arcimboldo's paintings of composite heads as imperial allegories; an account of a poet-astronomer's collaboration with artists; an essay on "Ancients" and "Moderns" in art and science in Prague; and a new review of art, politics, science, and the Kunstkammer."--Jacket

Painterly enlightenment : the art of Franz Anton Maulbertsch, 1724-1796 by Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Franz Anton Maulbertsch (1724-1796) was an Austrian fresco painter known for his bold use of color. Although he has been recognized in the Central European regions where he worked, Maulbertsch has remained outside the general canon of art history. With Painterly Enlightenment, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann recovers the story of Maulbertsch, offering the most comprehensive English-language study of this long-neglected artist. Kaufmann's analysis provides a thorough foundation for the recovery of one of the great painters of eighteenth-century Europe, a colorist worthy of comparison to the best of his contemporaries, including the celebrated Venetian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo." "Kaufmann situates Maulbertsch as a fresco painter at a time of transition to easel painting, a colorist at a time when color was not fully appreciated by contemporary observers, and an interpreter of religious themes at a time when secular subjects were becoming more popular. Although he has been dismissed as an eccentric by previous scholars, Kaufmann's analysis shows Maulbertsch involved in the intellectual and aesthetic issues of his day."--BOOK JACKET

Time and place : the geohistory of art( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book proposes to return anew to the approach of artistic geography, which had been largely neglected from the Second World War until recently, and to reevaluate the possibilities it provides through a selection of case studies that discuss the connection between art and its place. The introduction and first essay deal with the historiography of the geography of art. Five essays take up specific questions ranging from France and the Low Countries to Mexico and China. The final three essays consider contemporary and broader theoretical issues concerning art in time and place."--BOOK JACKET
