Renaissance rivals : Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian by Rona Goffen( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quoting from poems, letters, treatises, contracts, and other contemporary writings, the author demonstrates the extent to which artists, as well as their patrons and colleagues, characteristically thought about art in the context of rivalry. Renaissance patrons often stipulated in contracts with artists that their commissions be more beautiful than works made for other patrons. The artists themselves competed for commissions. Goffen brings into sharp focus the immediacy, intensity, and complexity of artistic rivalry among the Renaissance masters, recovering for us the emotional and professional circumstances that brought about their magnificent creations."--BOOK JACKET
Titian's women by Rona Goffen( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his paintings Titian invites the male beholder to respond to female emotions, Goffen contends (male, because in the act of viewing such erotic images, the viewer becomes male). And more than this, Titian's women imply his own absorption of female identity as a figure of artistic creativity

Titian's "Venus of Urbino" by Rona Goffen( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quintessential work of the High Renaissance in Venice, Titian's Venus of Urbino also represents one of the major themes of Western art: the female nude. But how did Titian intend this work to be received? Is she Venus, as the popular title - a modern invention - implies, or is she merely a courtesan? This book tackles this and other questions in six essays by European and American art historians. Examining the work within the context of Renaissance art theory, as well as the psychology and society of sixteenth-century Italy, and even in relation to Manet's nineteenth-century "translation" of the work, their observations begin and end with the painting itself and with appreciation of Titian's great achievement in creating this archetypal image of feminine beauty

Papers presented at the conference held at the Accademia di belle arti di Roma, Rome, Italy, February 13, 2015.00Rona Goffen (New York, 1944-Princeton, 2004) è stata una riconosciuta specialista di arte italiana del Rinascimento, in particolar modo veneziana. Conseguito il Ph.D. alla Columbia University, ha iniziato la sua carriera allIndiana University, quindi è stata Distinguished Professor a Duke e a Princeton, per approdare a Rutgers, l'Università dello Stato del New Jersey, come Board of Governors Professor of Art History. 0Gli esiti profondamente innovativi dei suoi studi, nel confronto fra storia delle idee e storia dellarte, frutto di una rigorosa ricerca documentaria, hanno inaugurato inedite prospettive dindagine nella cultura visiva del Rinascimento. Unoriginalità di approccio che emerge fin dalla sua tesi di dottorato, confluita in un saggio esemplare sulla visione e le immagini sacre (Icon and vision: the half-length Madonnas of Giovanni Bellini , 1974) e poi nella monografia su Bellini (Giovanni Bellini, 1989). Pietra miliare degli studi contestuali è poi lindagine sulla committenza e il francescanesimo nella basilica dei Frari a Venezia (Piety and Patronage in Renaissance Venice: Bellini, Titian, and the Franciscans, 1986), cui si aggiungono le ricerche in ambito fiorentino (Spirituality in Conflict: Saint Francis and Giottos Bardi Chapel, 1988 e Masaccios Trinity, 1998), e la sperimentazione sui gender studies, confluita nel volume su Tiziano (Titians Women, 1997); per finire con il volume sulla rivalità degli artisti del Rinascimento (Renaissance Rivals: Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian, 2002).0Questa raccolta di saggi inediti di Costanza Barbieri, Haroula Economopoulos, Daniele Ferrara, Augusto Gentili, Monica Grasso, Tod Marder, Giovanna Nepi Sciré, intende rendere omaggio alla studiosa americana, affrontando alcuni temi centrali delle sue ricerche che si rivelano ancor oggi originali e innovative
