Italian frescoes, the age of Giotto, 1280-1400 by Joachim Poeschke( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 371 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: the Peruzzi Chapel by Leonetto Tintori( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 362 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
The architecture in Giotto's paintings by Francesco Benelli( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 316 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"--Provided by publisher

Decorata da Giotto fra il 1303 e il 1305 con affreschi di straordinaria bellezza, la Cappella degli Scrovegni è stata recentemente restaurata e restituita al pubblico. La cappella si presenta come un grande vano a navata unica, interamente rivestita di affreschi e coperta da una solenne volta a botte blu oltremarino trapunta di stelle; opposta all'ingresso, nell'absidiola dietro l'altare, è collocata la tomba del fondatore Enrico degli Scrovegni. Il complesso ciclo di affreschi narra, su registri sovrapposti, gli Episodi della vita di Cristo, partendo dagli eventi precedenti (le Storie di Gioacchino e Anna, genitori di Maria) fino alle storie della passione, morte e resurrezione di Cristo, per concludersi con il monumentale Giudizio Universale della controfacciata e la serie dei Vizi e delle Virtù che decora lo zoccolo delle pareti laterali. Curato da Giuseppe Basile (direttore dei restauri) e corredato da un contributo storico-critico di Francesca d'Arcais, il volume riassume i risultati del lungo e complesso restauro dell'opera di Giotto e presenta - nella tradizione dei Grandi Libri Skira - un apparato iconografico di grande effetto e di grande spettacolarità visiva, affidata soprattutto alla riproduzione di numerosi particolari fino in scala 1:1, riprodotti a piena e doppia pagina
Giotto and the orators : humanist observers of painting in Italy and the discovery of pictorial composition, 1350-1450 by Michael Baxandall( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 2007 in Italian and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo libro l'autore documenta e dimostra come la lingua degli umanisti, un latino neo-classico e neo-ciceroniano, influì in maniera determinante sul loro modo di parlare e pensare riguardo alle opere d'arte. Attraverso gli scritti di Petrarca, Boccaccio, Villani, Vittorino da Feltre, Guarino da Verona, Crisolora, Facio, Filelfo, Biondo, Valla e Leon Battista Alberti assistiamo al formarsi di una specifica critica d'arte umanistica che si misura con gli artisti del proprio tempo, da Giotto e i giotteschi ai fiamminghi Jan van Eyck e Rogier van der Weyden, da Pisanello a Gentile da Fabriano (più noti e apprezzati di Masaccio) da Donatello a Ghiberti
