The Cambridge companion to Giovanni Bellini( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giovanni Bellini was the dominant painter of Early Renaissance Venice and is today recognized as one of the greatest of all Italian Renaissance artists. Although he has been the subject of numerous scholarly studies, his art continues to pose intriguing problems. This volume brings together commissioned essays that focus on important topics and themes in Bellini's career. They include a consideration of Bellini's position in the social and professional life of early modern Venice; reassessments of his artistic relationships with his brother-in-law Mantegna, with Flemish painting, and with the 'modern style' that emerged in Italy around 1500; and explorations of Bellini's approaches to sculpture and architecture, and to landscape and color, elements that have always been recognized as central to his pictorial genius. The volume concludes with analyses of Bellini's constantly evolving pictorial technique and the procedures of his busy workshop

Venice and the Veneto by Peter Humfrey( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides an account of the art and architecture of Venice and the principal cities of the Venetian mainland empire in the Renaissance, from 1450 to 1600. Thematically organized, it puts special emphasis on the relationship between art and the political, social, and religious institutions of the Venetian Republic. The creative achievements of major painters such as Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese and of major architects such as Sansovino and Palladia are viewed in the context of the particular needs and ideologies of individual and institutional patrons. Moreover, the distinctive character of Venice as an artistic center is complemented by the discussion of the art produced in the mainland cities of Padua, Treviso. Vicenza, Verona, Brescia, and Bergamo, all of which similarly used visual means to assert their own separate identities. An up-to-date account of the art of early modern Venice, with specially commissioned essays by a team of internationally known scholars, Venice and the Veneto is also lavishly illustrated, with black-and-white and color photographs."--Jacket
The age of Titian : Venetian renaissance art from Scottish collections by Peter Humfrey( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painting in Renaissance Venice represents one of the most vital chapters in the entire history of European art. Its influence was due, above all, to the achievement of its dominant personality, Titian. But Titian was merely the greatest in a constellation of pictorial geniuses and extraordinary craftsmen, foremost among them Giovanni Bellini, Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, Jacopo Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese and Alessandro Vittoria. All of these artists are represented here with works of superlative quality, many of which have never before been published. The paintings are complemented by examples of drawings, prints, sculpture and decorative arts from this period. This book examines not only the Golden Age of Venetian art but also the collectors who were responsible for bringing such works to Scotland."--Jacket
