Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese : rivals in Renaissance Venice by Frederick Ilchman( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly four decades in the sixteenth century, the careers of Renaissance Venice's three greatest painters - Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese - overlapped, encouraging mutual influences and bitter rivalries that changed the course of art history. Venice was then among Europe's richest cities, and its plentiful commissions fostered an exceptionally fertile and innovative climate. In this environment, the three artists - brilliant, ambitious, and fiercely competitive - vied with each other for primacy, deploying the new combination of oil on canvas, with its unique expressive possibilities, and such new approaches as a personal and identifiable signature touch. They also pioneered the use of easel painting, a newly portable format that allowed for unprecedented fame in their lifetimes. With more than 160 stunning examples by the three masters and their contemporaries, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese elucidates the technical and aesthetic innovations that helped define the "Venetian style"--Characterized by loose technique. rich coloring, and often sensual subject matter - as well as the social, political, and economic context in which it flourished. Essays range from examinations of new approaches to studies of such crucial institutions as state commissions and the private patronage system. Most of all, by concentrating on the lives and careers of Venice's three greatest painters, the volume presents a vibrant human portrait - one brimming with intense competition, one-upmanship, humor, and passion."--Jacket

Late Raphael by Raphael( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museo del Prado, this book focuses on a crucial but hitherto neglected part of Raphael's oeuvre: the work he and his pupils executed in Rome during the seven years from 1513 to the artist's death in 1520. Nearly ninety works--including paintings such as Saint Cecile and Portrait of Baldassere Castiglione, as well as drawings and a tapestry--illustrate the ways in which Raphael employed a range of technical devices, many of which were highly novel and enjoyed considerable influence. Raphael's workshop methods eventually became a model for the great artistic enterprises of the seventeenth century, notably those of Rubens, Bernini, and Pietro da Cortona. Essays by Tom Henry, Paul Joannides, Ana González Mozo, and Bruno Martín survey Raphael's late paintings in chronological order, explore his range of styles, and investigate the role of his workshop in the design and production of his pictures."--Publisher's website
Roman art from the Louvre by Cécile Giroire( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spanning the first century B.C. through the early fourth century A.D., the Louvre's world-class Roman art collection includes an enormous array of objects that reflect the rich history and culture of a magnificent civilization. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts and the Musee du Louvre, this book features an extraordinary selection of these works - from the most famous to some with new significance resulting from new information. Themes such as religion, urbanisim, war, imperial expansion, funerary practices, intellectual life, and family are vividly represented in mosaics, frescoes, bronze and terracotta statuettes, monumental sculptures, sarcophagi, reliefs, and glass and metal vessels." "Roman Art from the Louvre also documents the major restoration, process undertaken by the Louvre to revive the vibrancy of the works included in the exhibition. Through careful procedures of cleaning and repair, the reincarnation of the Louvre's collection transforms the contemporary view of early Roman public and private life, conveying a novel perspective and understanding of these ancient masterpieces."--Jacket

Leonardo da Vinci Renaissance master by Leonardo( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin and Child with Saint Anne had already been disfigured by attempts at repairs when the controversial decision was made in 2009 to once again attempt a clean-up and refurbishing. Complicating the decision was the fact that da Vinci had never finished the painting, but returned to it year after year to modify it. Could a restoration remain true to da Vinci's intentions? Might the masterpiece be further damaged by trying to save it? And would the public accept a newly-bright version of a work they'd come to know as dark and mysterious? This program goes behind the scenes of the Louvre's three-year restoration project, showing the delicate operation being carried out even as experts debate its risks. Viewers learn about various refurbishing techniques with the help of animations and close-ups, and discover important details about da Vinci's process with Virgin and Child that layers of grime had buried
