Art in Renaissance Italy by John T Paoletti( Book )

69 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A glance at the pages of Art in Renaissance Italy shows at once its freshness and breadth of approach, which includes: How and why works at art, buildings, prints, and other kinds of art came to be; how men and women of the Renaissance regarded art and artists; and why works of Renaissance art look the way they do, and what this means to us."--BOOK JACKET. "Unlike other books on the subject, this one covers not only Florence and Rome. Here too are Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples - each governed in a distinctly different manner, every one with its own political and social structures that inevitably affected artistic styles."--BOOK JACKET. "Spanning more than three centuries, the narrative brings to life the rich tapestry of Italian Renaissance society and the art works that are its enduring legacy. Throughout, special features evoke and document the people and places of this dynamic age."--Jacket

Michelangelo's David : Florentine history and civic identity by John T Paoletti( Book )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes a new look at the interpretations of, and the historical information surrounding, Michelangelo's David. New documentary materials discovered by Rolf Bagemihl add to the early history of the stone block that became the David and provide an identity for the painted terracotta colossus that stood on the cathedral buttresses for which Michelangelo's statue was to be a companion. The David, with its placement at the Palazzo della Signoria, was deeply implicated in the civic history of Florence, where public nakedness played a ritual role in the military and in the political lives of its people. This book, then, places the David not only within the artistic history of Florence and its monuments but also within the popular culture of the period as well"--
