Class Distinctions : Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer by Ronni Baer( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dutch Republic in the 17th century was home to one of the greatest flowerings of painting in the history of Western art. Freed from the constraints of royal and church patronage, artists created a rich outpouring of works that circulated through an open market to patrons and customers at every level of Dutch society. The closely observed details of daily life captured in portraits, genre scenes and landscapes offer a wealth of information about the possessions, activities and circumstances that distinguished members of the social classes, from the nobility to the urban poor. The dazzling array of paintings gathered here--by artists such as Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Gerard ter Borch, as well as Rembrandt and Vermeer--illuminated by essays from leading scholars, invites us to explore a vibrant early modern society and its reflection in a golden age of brilliant painting"--

8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emotional intensity is a hallmark of European art in the Baroque era, and Dutch and Flemish art are no exception. NKJ volume 60 is the first collection of essays to examine this aspect of visual culture in the early modern Netherlands. Case studies explore both the representation of the passions in paintings and prints of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the responses of contemporary viewers to works ranging from the vivid tronies (physiognomic studies) of Rembrandt to the dramatic hunting scenes of Peter Paul Rubens. In addition, several essays examine theoretical approaches to emotional display and response, drawing upon the writings of early modern art theorists, the interplay between painting and theatre, and the emerging field of neuroarthistory

A cultural history of the senses in the Renaissance( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2019 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We know the Renaissance as a key moment in the history of Europe. It saw the rise of court and urban cultures, witnessed the first global voyages of discovery and the emergence of the Reformation and the Counter Reformation. Indeed, it started with the invention of linear perspective, oil painting and moveable type. All these developments were significant in terms of sensory knowledge and the sensory practices of the everyday. Does the Renaissance stand for the 'ascendancy of the eye'? What happened to the sensory extremes which the famous Dutch historian Johan Huizinga still perceived in the fifteenth century? Did they simply disappear, or is there another history to be told: one of a surprising continuity, of the 'lower' senses - those of taste, smell and touch - hardly losing ground, neither in their daily prevalence nor in the cultural significance attached to them? This volume, assembling ten outstanding specialists, seeks to answer all these questions while offering a lively and sensational portrait of the period. The Cultural History of the Senses set delves into the sensory foundations of Western civilization, taking a comprehensive period-by-period approach which provides a broad understanding of the life of the senses from antiquity to the modern day. Each of the volumes explores the following topics: The Social Life of the Senses; Urban Sensations; The Senses in the Marketplace; The Senses in Religion; The Senses in Philosophy and Science; Medicine and the Senses; The Senses in Literature; The Senses in Art; and Sensory Media. Superbly illustrated, this six-volume set is the most authoritative and comprehensive historical survey of the senses available"--

Social control in Europe by Petrus Cornelis Spierenburg( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume collection of essays provides a comprehensive examination of the idea of social control in the history of Europe. The uniqueness of these volumes lies in two main areas. First, the contributors compare methods of social control on many levels, from police to shaming, church to guilds. Second, they look at these formal and informal institutions as two-way processes. Unlike many studies of social control in the past, the scholars here examine how individuals and groups that are being controlled necessarily participate in and shape the manner in which they are regulated. Hardly passive victims of discipline and control, these folks instead claimed agency in that process, accepting and resisting--and thus molding the controls under which they functioned. In both volumes, an introduction outlines the origins and the continuing value of the concept of social control. The introductions are followed by two substantive sections. The essays in part one of volume I focus on the interplay of ecclesiastical institutions and the emerging states; those in part two of volume I look more explicitly at discipline from a bottom-up perspective. The essays in part one of volume 2 explore the various means by which communities--generally working-class communities--in nineteenth-and twentieth-century Europe were subjected to forms of discipline in the workplace, by the church, and by philanthropic housing organizations. It notes also how the communities themselves generated their own forms of internal control. Part two of volume 2 focuses on various policing institutions, exploring in particular the question of how liberal and totalitarian regimes differed in their styles of control, repression, and surveillance
