Giotto, biographical and critical study by Eugenio Battisti( Book )

7 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giotto studies have reached a decisive turning point. A careful sifting of the available documents is now making it possible to establish a more satisfactory chronology of the artist's oeuvre. We find ourselves, nearly seven hundred years after Giotto's birth, in the presence of a group of really admirable works, easily accessible, which modern techniques of reproduction enable us to compare in their minutest details, and which every tourist to Italy makes a point of seeing. Never has Giotto's fame been so great as it is now. It is hoped that from these pages will emerge a picture of Giotto as he must have been seen and judged by his contemporaries. As we examine the problems he had to cope with, particularly those of subject and content, we must remember that Giotto was after all a painter of religious and historical subjects rather than a pure artist; he was alive to the great religious, political and social issues of his time, and his attitude toward them, whether he was for or against, is clearly and consciously reflected in his style. - p. 5-7

Articoli e conferenze di Eugenio Battisti, rari o inediti, sono raccolti qui in due parti, l'una concernente il periodo dal Medioevo al Seicento, l'altra relativa a problemi urbanistici e paesaggistici dell'Otto-Novecento. Ne emerge la storia del giardino e del paesaggio, nel mutarsi delle tecniche topiarie e idrauliche e delle motivazioni culturali, per i nessi tra arti visive, letteratura, scienze naturali e agrarie, organizzazione socio-economica, crisi politiche ed ecologia. Interessato sia all'aspetto visivo artistico-architettonico dei giardini rappresentati in dipinti o tuttora esistenti, sia alle descrizioni poetiche di letterati come Petrarca, Boccaccio e gli umanisti, e delle loro fonti, specie l'Ovidio moralizzato, sia al rapporto con pratiche devozionali, laudi e inni religiosi, sia ancora alla permanenza dell'immaginario mitologico, l'autore ha applicato il metodo iconologico alla lettura di famosi testi letterari, per scoprire il reciproco interreagire di tutti questi elementi. Dal giardino analizzato come sfondo di dipinti a mo' di hortus conclusus si poté passare, secondo l'autore, al giardino come percorso, quando anche la tipologia architettonica e l'urbanistica vennero intese come soggetti suscettibili di studio iconografico, cioè come strutture simboliche significanti, quasi categorie mentali collettive inconscie. Il successivo incontro tra l'iconologia e l'ecologia, movimento moderno non altrettanto umanistico, ma di forte impegno teorico e sociale, ha favorito un atteggiamento nuovo verso la possibilità di costruire oggi giardini e di rivitalizzare la loro funzione entro il costrittivo paesaggio urbano e nella scenografia di antichi e nuovi parchi tutelati dalla legge
