The works of art are analysed within Venice's cultural circumstances--political, economic, intellectual, and religious--and in terms of function, style, iconography, patronage, classical sources, gender, art theories, and artist's innovations, rivalries, and social status. The text has been divided into two parts--the fifteenth century and the sixteenth century--each part preceded by an introduction that recounts the history of Venice to 1500 and to 1600 respectively, including the city's founding, ideology, territorial expansion, social classes, governmental structure, economy, and religion. The twenty-six chapters have been organized to lead readers systematically through the major artistic developments within the three principal categories of art--governmental, ecclesiastic, and domestic--and have been arranged sequentially as follows: civic architecture and urbanism, churches, church decoration (ducal tombs and altarpieces), refectories and refectory decoration (section two only), confraternities (architecture and decoration), palaces, palace decoration (devotional works, portraits, secular painting, and halls of state), villas, and villa decoration. The conclusion offers an overview of the major types of Venetian art and architectural patronage and their funding sources"--Provided by publisher

El Renacimiento en Roma, 1400-1600 by Loren Partridge( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor realiza un análisis de Roma, creación del papado, remodelada y erigida de nuevo a finales de la Edad Media tras un largo periodo de abandono, encarnando una nueva estética: los ideales clásicos de simetría, axialidad, centro, jerarquía y unidad concretados y aprovechados para los requerimientos del poder eclesiástico y la responsabilidad cívica. Roma era simultáneamente producto y cuna del Alto Renacimiento. En manos de Bramante, Antonio da Sangallo, Vignola y della Porta, los palacios, desarrollados a partir de la austera tradición romana y florentina del Quattrocento, se convirtieron en edificios de imponente nobleza. Se erigieron iglesias a docenas; diseñadas tras la fachada del templo a partir de los principios de armonía espacial y cósmica, desplegaron una interminable versatilidad estilística en cuanto a la solución de problemas formales y teológicos. El San Pedro de Bramante y Miguel Ángel, y El Gesú de Vignola y della Porta representan la apoteosis de la arquitectura eclesiástica del Renacimiento; el Palacio Farnese de Sangallo y Miguel Ángel, la culminación de la arquitectura civil. Partridge analiza también la decoración escultórica y pictórica de Roma en los altares, las capillas y las salas de estado, incluyendo las obras maestras de la Capilla Sixtina y las Estancias del Vaticano
