Giotto: the Peruzzi Chapel by Leonetto Tintori( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and Italian and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The murals in the Peruzzi Chapel of Santa Croce in Florence comprise Giotto's last surviving production ... Until recently, Giotto's celebrated scheme was concealed by the dense accumulation of five centuries of repaint. The text and photographs ... describe the history of the chapel, the circumstances of the commission, and how the murals were originally carried out. This is followed by a section devoted to the story of the recent cleaning by Leonetto Tintori"--Cover
Italian frescoes, the age of Giotto, 1280-1400 by Joachim Poeschke( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio are the literary figures we associate with the transitional era between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Italy. In art history, this time of artistic fertility is represented above all by the name Giotto, the great Florentine artist around whose work revolved the innovations in the visual arts in Italy, during the trecento, which shaped the course of Western art for centuries to follow. Italian cities flourished especially in the early decades of the century, as ambitious architectural projects were undertaken that demanded equally challenging decorative programs. Communal palaces and princely residences, new cathedrals and the spacious churches of the mendicant orders, all provided new tasks for painting, and especially for mural painting." "Italian Frescoes: The Age of Giotto, 1280-1400 illustrates in detail the inspired responses to this challenge by Giotto, his contemporaries, and his successors. They undertook a continuous artistic exploration of new ground - in terms of figurative and narrative style as well as in the shaping of pictorial space and use of color. After an introductory overview, the volume begins with an in-depth presentation of the frescoes at San Francesco in Assisi, which became, in the decades around 1300, the great school of Italian painting, where Giotto, Pietro Lorenzetti, and Simone Martini, among others, created a new kind of painted mural and a new style of pictorial narrative. Expansive treatment is given as well to Giotto's masterful Arena Chapel in Padua, a touchstone of European art for writers and artists from Dante to Marcel Proust and from Ghiberti to Henri Matisse. Among the many other highlights of the volume are the chapels painted by Giotto, Taddeo Gaddi, Maso di Banco, Giovanni da Milano, and Agnolo Gaddi in the church of Santa Croce, Florence; Ambrogio Lorenzetti's monumental allegories of good and bad government in the Palazzo Pubblico, Siena; Buffalmacco's Triumph of Death and Last Judgment in Pisa's Camposanto; and, toward the end of the century, Altichiero's frescoes for the Saint George Chapel in Padua."--Jacket
Giotto and his publics : three paradigms of patronage by Julian Gardner( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These murals were executed during a twenty-year period when internal tensions divided the friars themselves and when the Order was confronted by a radical change of papal policy toward its defining vow of poverty. The Order had amassed great wealth and built ostentatious churches, alienating many Franciscans in the process and incurring the hostility of other Orders. Many elements in Giotto's frescoes, including references to St. Peter, Florentine politics, and church architecture, were included to satisfy patrons, redefine the figure of Francis, and celebrate the dominant group within the Franciscan brotherhood."--Jacket

The architecture in Giotto's paintings by Francesco Benelli( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an analysis of Giotto's painted architecture, focusing on issues of structural logic, clarity of composition, and its role within the narrative of the painting. Giotto was the first artist since antiquity to feature highly detailed architecture in a primary role in his paintings. Francesco Benelli demonstrates how architecture was used to create pictorial space, one of Giotto's key inventions. He argues that Giotto's innovation was driven by a new attention to classical sources, including low reliefs, mosaics, mural paintings, coins and Roman ruins. The book shows how Giotto's images of fictive buildings, as well as portraits of well-known monuments, both ancient and contemporary, play an important role in the overall narrative, iconography and meaning of his works. The conventions established by Giotto remained at the heart of early modern Italian painting until the sixteenth century."--

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

13 editions published in 1960 in 4 languages and held by 28 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
