Titian : essays( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tiziano Vecellio, known in England as Titian, is one of the undisputed masters of Western art." "Written by some of the world's most renowned Titian scholars, this beautiful and generously illustrated book accompanies the first monographic exhibition in Britain devoted to the work of this extraordinary artist. The exhibition includes over forty paintings from every stage of Titian's long career, including masterpieces such as the group of paintings commissioned for the studiolo of Alfonso d'Este, shown together for the first time since they first hung in the Duke's place in Ferrara." "The catalogue to the exhibition is preceded by four authoritative essays investigating different aspects of Titian's work: Titian's life and times, by Charles Hope; his skill as a painter of portraits, by Jennifer Fletcher; his painting technique, by Jill Dunkerton; and an examination of Titian replicas and variants, by Miguel Falomir. These provide the background for a detailed discussion of the works in the exhibition. Short essays by David Jaffe introduce the main themes. The wide scope of the book and its lavish illustrations make this the most informative and accessible introduction to Titian for many years."--Jacket
Titian by Charles Hope( Book )

23 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest of all Venetian painters, Titian achieved a worldly success and an artistic influence unsurpassed in his own lifetime. In this major and scholarly study Charles Hope presents an authoritative new account of Titian's remarkable rise to fame and sustained pre-eminence, basing his arguments extensively on unpublished information and convincingly challenging many accepted ideas about the painter's career and development. Dr. Hope sheds fresh light on the meaning of Titian's paintings, on the role of his studio, his influence on contemporaries and on the changes in his own ideals and techniques. Thirty-two plates in color and over eighty in black and white illustrate every aspect of Titian's art, demonstrating his status as the last great painter of the High Renaissance. They include portraits, the epitome of the aristocratic ideals of the period, as well as erotic mythologies, which created an enduring and pervasive image of the world of the pagan gods, and large-scale religious compositions, whose innovations laid the foundations of the baroque art of Catholic Europe. -- Form publisher's description
The Genius of Venice, 1500-1600( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini by Benvenuto Cellini( Book )

15 editions published between 1956 and 1983 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith; a passionate craftsman who was admired and resented by the most powerful political and artistic personalities in sixteenth-century Florence, Rome and Paris. He was also a murderer and a braggart, a shameless adventurer who at different times experienced both papal persecution and imprisonment, and the adulation of the royal court. Inn-keepers and prostitutes, kings and cardinals, artists and soldiers rub shoulders in the pages of his notorious autobiography: a vivid portrait of the manners and morals of both the rulers of the day and of their subjects. Written with supreme powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humour, this is an unrivalled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici

Titian by Charles Hope( Book )

24 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few individuals have had a greater influence on the development of Western painting than the celebrated sixteenth-century Venetian artist Titian (c. 1480–1576). His vibrant colors and masterful brushwork have made his work a constant inspiration to artists, from Rubens to the Impressionists and beyond. Every generation has found something new to admire in his astonishing technique, which enabled him to produce fresh interpretations of the most familiar religious and mythological stories as well as portraits and landscapes. Written by some of the world’s most renowned Titian scholars, this beautifully illustrated book accompanies a major exhibition devoted to the work of this extraordinary artist. Authoritative essays on Titian’s life and times, portraits, replicas, and technique provide the background for a detailed examination of over 40 of his greatest masterpieces—works that provide evidence of Titian’s genius as a stylistic innovator and supreme manipulator of paint

Giorgione or Titian? : history of a controversy by Charles Hope( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hope uses Portrait of a Man in a Red Cap in the Frick Collection as a starting point for a review of the historical vagaries in attributing paintings to Giorgione or the young Titian. He spends roughly twice as much time on Giorgione, of whom less is known, than on the long-lived, better-documented Titian. He analyzes connoisseurship from Vasari to the present, citing Crowe and Cavalcaselles and Longhi as major influences on the debate. He suggests that archival and historical research might succeed where connoisseurship has failed, hinting that artists beyond the Giorgione/Titian/Sebastiano del Piombo triumvirate might be considered
