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

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 689 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

Vermeer and the masters of genre painting : inspiration and rivalry by Adriaan E Waiboer( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A landmark exploration of the engaging network of relationships among genre painters of the Dutch Golden Age. The genre painting of the Dutch Golden Age between 1650 and 1675 ranks among the highest pinnacles of Western European art. The virtuosity of these works, as this book demonstrates, was achieved in part thanks to a vibrant artistic rivalry among numerous first-rate genre painters working in different cities across the Dutch Republic. They drew inspiration from each other's painting, and then tried to surpass each other in technical prowess and aesthetic appeal. The Delft master Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) is now the most renowned of these painters of everyday life. Though he is frequently portrayed as an enigmatic figure who worked largely in isolation, the essays here reveal that Vermeer's subjects, compositions, and figure types in fact owe much to works by artists from other Dutch cities. Enlivened with 180 superb illustrations, Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting highlights the relationships - comparative and competitive - among Vermeer and his contemporaries, including Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, and Frans van Mieris"--

Roman art from the Louvre by Cécile Giroire( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 361 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

Augustin Pajou : royal sculptor, 1730-1809 by James David Draper( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is the first major study of the French Neoclassical sculptor Augustin Pajou (1730-1809) in almost a century, and it is the only work about him in English. Here the artist's work is discussed and illustrated in depth, and the artistic, courtly, and aristocratic circles in which he worked are considered in detail. This examination concentrates on the beginnings of Neoclassicism and explores the philosophical and scientific underpinnings of the Enlightenment, in which Pajou played an important part. This publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Musee du Louvre, Paris, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, presents to both the scholar and the general reader a great artist who has at last received his due. The volume is lavishly illustrated and contains a detailed chronology, a short history of the artist's critical reputation, an exhaustive bibliography, and a complete index

Valentin de Boulogne : beyond Caravaggio by Annick Lemoine( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following Caravaggio's death in 1610, the French artist Valentin de Boulogne (1591-1632) emerged as one of the great champions of naturalist painting. The eminent art historian Roberto Longhi honored him as "the most energetic and passionate of Caravaggio's naturalist followers ... With discussions of nearly fifty works, representing practically all of his painted oeuvre, Valentin de Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio explores both the artist's superlative depictions of daily life and the tumultuous context in which they were produced ... Rich with incident and insight, and beautifully illustrated with Valentin's complex, suggestive paintings, Valentin de Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio reveals a seminal artist, a practitioner of realism in the seventeenth century who prefigured the naturalistic modernism of Gustave Courbet and Edouard Manet two centuries later"--Jacket
