Most widely held works by William L Barcham
Happiness or its absence in art by William L Barcham( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of 'happiness' is central to most civilized cultures. This volume investigates the many ways in which Western art visualized the concept from the early Middle Ages to the present. Employing different methodological approaches, the essays gathered here situate the concept of human happiness within discourses on gender, religion, intellectual life, politics and 'New-Age' culture. Operating as a cultural agent, art communicated the idea of happiness as both a physical and spiritual condition by exploiting specific formulae of representation. This volume combines art history, cultural analyses and intellectual studies in order to explore the complexities of iconographic programs that represent various forms of happiness, or its explicit absence, and to expose the implications embedded in the artistic works in question. Through innovative readings, the ten authors presented in the book survey different artistic and/or cultural paradigms and offer new interpretations of happiness or of its absence

The religious paintings of Giambattista Tiepolo : piety and tradition in eighteenth-century Venice by William L Barcham( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first work to concentrate on the great religious paintings of Giambattista Tiepolo (1696-1770), who produced some of the most ravishing devotional images in Western Art. Scrutinizing both iconography and technique, Barcham shows that Tiepolo's religious art represented the ultimate artistic embodiment of the Venetian Republic's sentiments in that it expressed Venetian patriotism, tradition, and national identity

New perspectives on the Man of Sorrows( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New perspectives on the man of sorrows' is a collection of ten essays investigating an assortment of issues and problems raised by the Man of Sorrows, a figure charged with profound spiritual, metaphorical, and symbolic meaning that traveled across Europe, populated all the arts, and permeated numerous religious contexts as it soared in popularity in the West from the late Middle Ages into the Renaissance and beyond. The authors of these studies represent different approaches, methods, and interests and explain several artistic schools, traditions, and periods, proposing new perspectives on this remarkable image. John Sawyer, Colum Hourihane, Gra?yna Jurkowlaniec, Mitchell Merback, and Susan Boynton explore the Man of Sorrows from multiple angles; Maria Constantoudaki, William L. Barcham, Lyle Humphrey, Catherine R. Puglisi, and Stefania Mason focus on the particular impact of the figure in the Venetian world. The Man of Sorrows was able to adapt to external circumstances, to the constraints of different media, exigencies of changing milieus, the requirements of patrons, and the needs of the devout, and is therefore of interest to just as wide an audience today as ever

Tiepolo's pictorial imagination : drawings for Palazzo Clerici by William L Barcham( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1740 Giambattista Tiepolo completed his grand ceiling fresco for the Gallery of Palazzo Clerici, Milan. Unlike his previous ceilings, this was a long gallery that could not be seen in its entirety from a single viewpoint; instead, the ceiling unrolls overhead in a scroll-like manner as visitors pass down the long Gallery. A large group of preparatory studies survives for the ceiling, and these permit us to consider how Tiepolo responded to this daunting assignment and produced a series of interrelated figure groups to decorate the vault. Nearly all today at the Morgan Library & Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museo Horne in Florence, these drawings have long been recognized as studies for the ceiling, but never before has there been a sustained attempt to trace Tiepolo?s creative process through the dozens of sheets. William Barcham?s study of the Clerici drawings thus offers new perspectives not only on the Clerici ceiling but more broadly on Tiepolo?s pictorial imagination and inventive genius
