Arcimboldo : 1526-1593 by Musée national du Luxembourg (France)( Book )

23 editions published in 2007 in 6 languages and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous all over the world for his portraits (illustrated composites of plants, fruit, and animals combined to create the illusion of a human form) Arcimboldo still remains, paradoxically, a painter shrouded in mystery. This important monograph reveals the eclecticism of one of the most fertile and lively minds of the Mannerist period, placing him in the cultural context in which he lived and worked. Admired during his life, Arcimboldo fell into oblivion after his death in 1593. His original, eccentric works have been little understood, but were rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the Surrealists, who considered him a precursor of Modern art. His work has enjoyed a particular revival of interest again over the last twenty years. In addition to the artist's anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldo's paintings (many previously unpublished), tapestries, drawings, and illustrations created throughout his life, from his training in Lombardy to his time at the Hapsburg court. This volume will enable readers to discover and appreciate the scope of the great Arcimboldo's extraordinary work. - Publisher
Giorgione : myth and enigma by Giorgione( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and Italian and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today Giorgione is regarded as a unique phenomenon in the history of art: almost no other Western painter has left so few secure works and enjoyed such fame for almost five hundred years. His legend is fed not only by the mystery that still surrounds him, both as a man and a painter, but also by the subtle inscrutability he was able to infuse in his paintings
Masters of Venice : Renaissance painters of passion and power from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring fifty masterworks by Mantegna, Giorgione, Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto, this stunning book examines the brilliant painters who transformed the art of Renaissance Venice. Among the singular moments in the evolution of Western art, the Venetian Renaissance forged an artistic vocabulary of dazzling virtuosity. Celebrating the poetic potential of color and beauty observed in nature, Venetian painters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries transcended the spatial, textural, and emotional realism of their predecessors to create works unsurpassed in their sensual depictions, velvety surfaces, and unique and glorious treatment of light. Focusing on canonical works from Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum (one of the world's four great imperial museums, along with the Hermitage, the Louvre, and the Prado), this book's lavish illustrations and illuminating essays offer a rich introduction to the treasures of the Venetian Renaissance. Among the spectacular artworks are Mantegna's tortured Saint Sebastian, Titian's enigmatic Bravo (The Assassin) and sumptuous Danäe, and a rare group of paintings by the elusive Giorgione, including Portrait of a Young Woman (Laura) and The Three philosophers. The book also includes exemplary works by Veronese, Palma ecchio, Bordone, and Bassano, among others, revealing the full range of Venetian accomplishment in the Renaissance era
Late Titian and the sensuality of painting by Titian( Book )

8 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 )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 123 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

Wir sind Maske by Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Maske, das "künstliche Gesicht", ist Teil der frühesten künstlerischen Produktion der Menschheit überhaupt und diente über alle Zeiten hinweg in den unterschiedlichsten Kulturen stets als Instrument und Medium lebens- oder/und kulturstiftender Prozesse: im Toten- Erinnerungs- und Ahnenkult, in Riten der Verwandlung und Erneuerung, als fundamentale Ausdrucksform in Mysterienspielen und im Theater, als Teil höfischer Festzüge, doch letztlich auch zum Schutz, zur Camouflage und vielem anderen. Neu an dieser Präsentation - über den breit gestreckten zeitlichen und kulturellen Rahmen hinaus - ist vor allem der Versuch, anhand einer Gliederung nach Funktionen, die Masken der bisher konzeptuell und museal getrennten Kulturen der europäischen und aussereuropäischen Länder wirkungsvoll miteinander in Beziehung zu setzen. Ausstellung: Museum für Völkerkunde, Wien, 24.6.-28.9.2009
