Most widely held works by Elizabeth Cropper
Nicolas Poussin : friendship and the love of painting by Elizabeth Cropper( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By investigating the important figures who were close to the painter Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665), Elizabeth Cropper and Charles Dempsey allow the reader to enter not only the Rome where he lived but also the Rome of antiquity, which he admired and tried to reconstruct. The authors argue that Poussin's works were structured by his friendships, as well as by his study of ancient history and early Christian archaeology, his exploration of the poetry and mystery of ancient places, and his conception of his paintings as gifts rather than commercial objects. By looking into this rich background, they also show how Poussin introduced into his theory and practice of painting a new concept of the inherent expressiveness of form that was quite different from the then prevailing conventions for depicting the passions and affections
Pontormo, Bronzino, and the Medici : the transformation of the Renaissance portrait in Florence by Carl Brandon Strehlke( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book accompanies an exhibition of the same name held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art upon the completion of conservation of Jacopo Pontormo's famous portrait of Duke Alessandro de'Medici. Centering on Pontormo's painting and Agnolo Bronzino's equally renowned depiction of another Medici duke, Cosimo I, the exhibition gathers from American and European collections nearly fifty sixteenth-century works that demonstrate the ways in which these artists changed the Renaissance portrait during a tumultuous period in Florence's history." "In his catalogue entries, Carl Brandon Strehlke surveys the history and multifaceted significance of the Medici portraits and other paintings, drawings, coins, medals, books, and prints in the exhibition, offering a wealth of insights into these works and the Florentine men and women they portray." "This fully illustrated volume also features Elizabeth Cropper's "Pontormo and Bronzino in Philadelphia: A Double Portrait," which explores the rich cultural and artistic background of these artists' portraiture. An essay by Mark S. Tucker, Irma Passeri, Ken Sutherland, and Beth A. Price discusses findings from the recent conservation of Pontormo's portrait of Alessandro. A genealogy of the Medici family, a glossary, and a bibliography complete this publication."--Jacket
Pontormo : portrait of a halberdier by Elisabeth Cropper( Book )

16 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pontormo's Halberdier has long been controversial. How did scholars come to identify the sitter as Duke Cosimo de' Medici and why is this open to doubt? Who was Francesco Guardi? What was the siege of Florence, and could Pontormo have made this compelling portrait during that time of deprivation and political tumult? In a fascinating piece of historical detective work, Elizabeth Cropper investigates these questions and uncovers new evidence for interpretation. She also analyzes the portrait's relationship to other works by Pontormo, explores the importance for Pontormo of Donatello, Michelangelo, and Andrea del Sarto, and looks into Bronzino's connection with the portrait

The Domenichino affair : novelty, imitation, and theft in seventeenth-century Rome by Elizabeth Cropper( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ten years after completing his work The Last Communion of Saint Jerome, Bolognese painter Domenichino was accused by his rival Giovanni Lanfranco of stealing the idea for the painting from an altarpiece crafted by Lanfranco's teacher, Agostino Carracci. The resulting scandal reverberated through the centuries, drawing responses by artists and critics from Poussin and Malvasia to Fuseli and Delacroix." "Why was Domenichino attacked in this way when other related paintings - including Raphael's Marriage of the Virgin and Perugino's painting of the same subject - aroused no such negative response? In this fast-paced book, Elizabeth Cropper investigates the Domenichino affair and addresses the perennial debate regarding the precise nature of originality and of imitation. She offers close readings of the paintings involved in the story, detailed analysis of attitudes toward imitation, emulation, and plagiarism, and a fascinating discussion of what Domenichino's plight signifies in art history."--Jacket

"A 1992 exhibition at the Uffizi dedicated to "Il disegno fiorentino al tempo di Lorenzo il Magnifico", and commemorating the five-hundredth anniversary of the death of Lorenzo de' Medici forms the focus of this multi-lingual volume. Jointly sponsored by the Uffizi, the meeting at the Villa Spelman brought together curators and art historians from throughout the world to discuss the technique, function, meaning, and attribution of the extraordinary selection of drawings exhibited. The colloquium also made it possible to extend the range of debate beyond the exhibition to include works in other collections and other media, notably printmaking and painting." "This volume includes many new observations about specific Florentine drawings from the later fifteenth century by such artists as Maso Finiguerra, Ghirlandaio, Michelangelo, Cosimo Rosselli, Signorelli, and Filippino Lippi. It also provides an indispensable introduction to recent research into the theory and practice of drawing at the time of Lorenzo the Magnificent, when artists such as Botticelli, Verrocchio, Leonardo da Vinci, and Filippino Lippi were exploring new possibilities for both figuration and expression."--Jacket
