The art of Parmigianino by David Franklin( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The beauty and range of the work of the sixteenth-century artist Parmigianino as painter, draughtsman, and printmaker make him one of the most remarkable figures of the Italian Renaissance. He was an artist who seemed to discover his style without any effort, and his art was universally recognized as being graceful, or full of grace. In his day, "grace" was understood to be a spiritual endowment, conferring qualities that could not be taught. It was one of the preconditions of natural genius, so highly valued among Renaissance artists. But nothing as effortlessly elegant as Parmigianino's drawings and paintings could have been achieved without effort. It is through a close study of the drawings, in particular, that one is able to discern the sources of Parmigianino's style and the creative struggles he endured." "This illustrated study offers a comprehensive reassessment of his work as a draughtsman. More than eighty works on paper, selected from collections around the world, are discussed in detail. Among Renaissance artists, Parmigianino was perhaps more conscious than any of the potential of the graphic arts to convey, and indeed broadcast, complex ideas. He explored this potential himself, not only by means of his numerous drawings but also through the etchings he produced on his own (effectively introducing this print medium into Italian art) and through the engravings and chiaroscuro woodcuts that were made after his designs. In these media, his influence travelled farther and wider than it could have through his paintings alone." "This book coinciding with the quincentenary of the artist's birth in Parma in 1503, accompanies an exhibition presented at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, from October 3, 2003 to January 4, 2004, and at The Frick Collection, New York, from January 27 to April 18, 2004"--Jacket

Nicolas Lancret, 1690-1743 by Mary Tavener Holmes( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his lifetime (1690-1743), and throughout the greater part of the eighteenth century, Nicolas Lancret was one of the most celebrated artists in France. After nearly two centuries of having been overshadowed by the work of certain contemporaries (notably Watteau), the singular appeal and sophisticated charm of Lancret's genre paintings are once more widely recognized and appreciated. This is the first book in English about Lancret, a key force in the development of the visual arts in eighteenth-century France. As one of the leading artists of his time, Lancret counted among his patrons the crowned heads of Europe, along with major connoisseurs among the aristocracy and in the financial community. He was also the favorite genre artist of Louis XV, who commissioned paintings from him for various royal residences--especially Versailles and Fontainebleau. The reasons for Lancret's popularity and success are apparent in the paintings and drawings splendidly reproduced in this book. His pictures tell lively and intelligible stories, his themes are inventive and entertaining, and his color combinations are bright and striking. His images made the transition from decorative painting to engraving with ease, and then proceeded to capture the popular imagination in much the same way as amusing gossip. As he matured, Lancret developed his talent for narrative--for a visual form of storytelling that is subtle and sophisticated, yet also ingenuous and folkloric. This tradition in European art was strong and continuous, as reflected in the work of its most famous adherents, Hogarth and Greuze. No eighteenth-century painter was more firmly centered and active in that tradition than Nicolas Lancret

Andrea del Sarto : the Renaissance workshop in action by Julian Brooks( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Renaissance artist Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530) rivals Leonardo da Vinci as one of history's most accomplished draftsmen. Moving beyond the graceful elegance of his contemporaries, such as Raphael and Fra Bartolommeo, he brought unprecedented realism to his drawings through the rough and rustic use of chalk in his powerfully rendered life and compositional studies. With an immediacy few other Renaissance artists possess, del Sarto's work has proven to be inspirational and compelling to later audiences, with admirers such as Degas and Redon. This lavishly illustrated book reveals del Sarto's dazzling inventiveness and creative process, presenting fifty core drawings on paper together with a handful of paintings. The first publication to look to del Sarto's working practice through a close examination of his art from across all the world's major collections, this volume analyzes new studies of his panel underdrawings as well. The depth and breadth of its research make this book an important contribution to the study of del Sarto and Florentine Renaissance workshop practice." -- Publisher's description

Girl with a pearl earring : Dutch paintings from the Mauritshuis( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume will mark the first time Johannes Vermeer's iconic painting will be seen in the Southeast. The painting headlines the exhibition, which highlights the artistic genius of Dutch Golden Age painters, including Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals and Jan Steen, through the presentation of more than 35 exceptional works. Through landscapes and portraits, this book will explore the idea that Dutch artists more readily embraced paintings of everyday subjects than their southern European contemporaries, focusing on capturing commonplace scenes of daily life. Dutch artists not only recorded representations of the domestic interior, still lifes and boisterous crowds, but often imbued these scenes with moral undertones and humorous, sarcastic wit

Andrea Riccio : Renaissance master of bronze by D Allen( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This scholarly catalogue accompanies The Frick Collection's Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze, the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Andrea Briosco, called Riccio. Although Riccio is acknowledged to be one of the greatest bronze sculptors of the Renaissance, he is still understudied, and the last monograph dedicated to him dates from 1927. Current Riccio scholarship has tended to be narrowly focused, and suffers from the presupposition that Riccio was primarily an antiquarian whose sculptures satisfied the erudite tastes of a closed circle of Paduan humanist collectors. Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze dramatically challenges these outdated perceptions." "The catalogue features essays by the organizing curators and leading scholars on Riccio's life and career, Riccio and the small bronze as art form, as well as a technical study of his casting technique. It includes detailed scholarly entries for each sculpture and is richly illustrated with new photography. By providing a cogent image of Riccio's autograph production, this catalogue offers an essential first step for future Riccio studies."--Jacket

In a new light : Giovanni Bellini's "St. Francis in the Desert" by Susannah Rutherglen( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giovanni Bellini's St. Francis in the Desert is a masterpiece of Venetian Renaissance art that has inspired generations of visitors to The Frick Collection. This monumental panel painting portrays Francis of Assisi, the medieval Christian saint who renounced earthly riches to embrace a humble existence of poverty, prayer, and obedience to the Gospels. Departing from canonical representations of the holy man's life and miracles, Bellini has imagined Francis alone in a mountainous wilderness, stepping forward from his simple shelter into a golden light that seems to transfigure him spiritually. For centuries, viewers have puzzled over the work's meaning--seeking explanations in a variety of pictorial and textual sources. Until recently, however, the artist's practical conception and realization of this extraordinary vision have remained largely unexplored. In a New Light presents the collective findings of an unprecedented technical examination of St. Francis in the Desert. Following a series of in-depth analyses--including infrared reflectography, X-radiography, microscopy, and paint sampling--an international group of specialists considered the artist's working process and its implications for the picture's meaning. Their findings provide a "glimpse over Bellini's shoulder" and open new avenues of research into Venetian Renaissance painting and its cultural and religious context. Also published here for the first time are recently discovered documents pertaining to the provenance of St. Francis in the Desert during the nineteenth century, as well as synthetic studies of the work's Franciscan milieu and early history." -- Publisher's description
