History of Italian Renaissance art: painting, sculpture, architecture by Frederick Hartt( Book )

177 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 5,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a journey through four centuries of Italian Renaissance painting, sculpture, and architecture. Its color illustrations, fine writing, and in-depth scholarship bring into focus all the elements of this extraordinarily creative period and the remarkable personalities who gave it life. Highlights of this fifth edition include a new design with more than half the artworks illustrated in full color, new views of frescoes and sculptures photographed in their original locations that offer insight into the way the art was originally experienced, fresh views of great works of art that have been restored since the last edition, and extended captions that identify Renaissance patrons and provide details about historical context, emphasizing how the art was created and why. Building on the book's more than 30-year tradition, revising author David G. Wilkins blends new scholarly discoveries with the enthusiasm that Hartt conveyed to generations of students and admirers of Italian Renaissance art

Art : a history of painting, sculpture, architecture by Frederick Hartt( Book )

15 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Hartt can answer better than perhaps any other living writer the questions: What is art? What makes certain works great, others less so? Volume I begins with the Old Stone Age and follows the course of Western art to the end of the thirteenth century. The first three parts examine the painting, sculpture, and architecture of more than twenty civilizations. A final chapter on painting and sculpture in Italy from 1260 to 1360 -- an era known as the Proto-Renaissance that looks back to the grandeur of Gothic art and forward to the great discoveries and achievements of the Renaissance -- forms a bridge between the two volumes. Volume II begins with the Proto-Renaissance in Italy and follows artistic development in the West up to the present. In three major parts -- The Renaissance, The Baroque, and The Modern World -- the dominant schools and artists of the last eight centuries are examined. -- From publisher's description

David by the hand of Michelangelo : the original model discovered by Frederick Hartt( Book )

21 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March, 1987, art historian Frederick Hartt announced the discovery of a small stucco torso which he believed to be Michelangelo's model for his famous "David." Hartt, the eminent Italian Renaissance scholar, recounts the commissioning of the David, Vasari's description of the model and Michelangelo's methods, and the inventorying of the model in the Medici apartments in the Palazzo Vecchio from the early sixteenth century until 1690, when a terrible fire swept the building. He reconstructs the probable chain of events the occurred after the fire, when the model, severely damaged, fell into the rubble and was lost for the next two centuries. This masterpiece of detection and deduction reads like a thriller
Donatello, prophet of modern vision by Donatello( Book )

26 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few of the basic facts about Donatello's life can be put together, but we are left with distressing gaps. Even fewer inferences can be drawn from these facts. According to his own tax declarations of 1427 and 1433, Donato de Niccolo di Betto Bardi was born in 1386. A later declaration, made in 1457 when the artist was over seventy, sets his birthdate at 1382, but it was quite customary for old people in Florence to make themselves look even older on their tax records to enlist the sympathies of the fiscal officials and thus reduce their assessments. "Donatello" is a nickname, whose diminutive form may indicate the small stature of the sculptor. -- Introduction
