Painting and experience in fifteenth century Italy : a primer in the social history of pictorial style by Michael Baxandall( Book )

87 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Serving as both an introduction to fifteenth-century Italian painting and as a text on how to interpret social history from the style of pictures in a given historical period, this new edition to Baxandall's pre-eminent scholarly volume examines early Renaissance painting, and explains how the style of painting in any society reflects the visual skills and habits that evolve out of daily life. Renaissance painting, for example, mirrors the experience of such activities as preaching, dancing, and gauging barrels. The volume includes discussions of a wide variety of painters, including Filippo Lippi, Fra Angelico, Stefano di Giovanni, Sandro Botticelli, Masaccio, Luca Signorelli, Boccaccio, and countless others. Baxandall also defines and illustrates sixteen concepts used by a contemporary critic of painting, thereby assembling the basic equipment needed to explore fifteenth-century art. This new second edition includes an appendix that lists the original Latin and Italian texts referred to throughout the book, providing the reader with all the relevant, authentic sources. It also contains an updated bibliography and a new reproduction of a recently restored painting which replaces the original
Patterns of intention : on the historical explanation of pictures by Michael Baxandall( Book )

50 editions published between 1981 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ved at analysere Picasso's portræt af Kahnweiler, Chardin's En dame der drikker te, og Piero Della Francesca's Kristi dåb diskuterer Baxandall malernes hensigt og den kultur hvorfra han henter sine ressourcer. Han reflekterer over, hvor vidt vi kan forstå en kunstner fra en anden kultur og i hvor høj grad vi kan afprøve en historisk tolkning af et billede
Giotto and the orators : humanist observers of painting in Italy and the discovery of pictorial composition, 1350-1450 by Michael Baxandall( Book )

67 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo libro l'autore documenta e dimostra come la lingua degli umanisti, un latino neo-classico e neo-ciceroniano, influì in maniera determinante sul loro modo di parlare e pensare riguardo alle opere d'arte. Attraverso gli scritti di Petrarca, Boccaccio, Villani, Vittorino da Feltre, Guarino da Verona, Crisolora, Facio, Filelfo, Biondo, Valla e Leon Battista Alberti assistiamo al formarsi di una specifica critica d'arte umanistica che si misura con gli artisti del proprio tempo, da Giotto e i giotteschi ai fiamminghi Jan van Eyck e Rogier van der Weyden, da Pisanello a Gentile da Fabriano (più noti e apprezzati di Masaccio) da Donatello a Ghiberti

Tiepolo and the pictorial intelligence by Svetlana Alpers( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Italian and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics taken up include: painting's resistance to enacted narrative drama, its engagement with indeterminacies and repetitions, the senses in which a painter may 'perform' both past art and himself, the constructive roles of gestural drawing, exploitation of shifts of scale between design and finished work, dialogue between the changing natural site lighting and in-picture lighting, contributions made by the beholder's own mobility, the expressive scope of tensions between two and three dimensions, the deep rationale of rococo formal structure, and the sources of the moral force of pictures without an explicit moral. The book - both art criticism and a practical polemic - ends with an annotated gazetteer for travellers, listing those Tiepolo paintings that can still be seen in the places and conditions for which he painted them
Tilman Riemenschneider : master sculptor of the late Middle Ages by Tilman Riemenschneider( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sculpture of Tilman Riemenschneider stands solidly anchored in the late Gothic tradition, while it also reflects emerging humanist concerns. Riemenschneider, who was active in Wurzburg from around 1483 until 1531, was one of the first sculptors to abandon polychromy on occasion, making a conscious aesthetic decision to leave visible his favored material, limewood. His sculpture strikes a rare balance between formal elegance and expressive strength, and it is among the most appealing work of the late Middle Ages." "The approximately fifty works documented in this handsome volume offer a fresh look at this great master. The book presents a broad survey of Riemenschneider's oeuvre, including representative work from all periods of his career. Contributors explore the sources for his art, his social milieu and the organization of his workshop, the critical reception of his work, his polychrome and monochrome sculpture."--Jacket
Words for pictures : seven papers on Renaissance art and criticism by Michael Baxandall( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian Renaissance was a creative period for art criticism as well as for art itself. The early efforts to give verbal accounts of visual representations and their quality throw light not only on art during the Renaissance but also on art criticism at any time. This collection of papers by the art historian and critic Michael Baxandall represents his thinking over the past forty years on the relation between language and art. He offers seven thought-provoking pieces, three of which are new and written specifically for this book. While Baxandall focuses on works of the fifteenth century, his essays transcend this period and show with fresh insight how words match the experience of looking at paintings and sculptures."--Jacket
