Venice & drawing, 1500-1800 : theory, practice and collecting by Catherine Whistler( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the time of Titian and Tintoretto to that of Canaletto and Tiepolo, drawing was an important part of artistic practice and was highly valued in Venice. This exciting new study overturns traditional views on the significance of drawing in Venice, as an art and an act, from the Renaissance to the age of the Grand Tour. Gathering together the separate strands of theory, artistic practice, and collecting, Catherine Whistler highlights the interactions and tensions between a developing literary discourse and the practices of making and collecting graphic art. Her analysis challenges the conventional definition of Venetian art purely in terms of colour, demonstrating that 16th-century Venetian artists and writers had a highly developed sense of the role and importance of disegno and drawing in art

This richly illustrated volume offers a new look at the exceptional collection of Italian drawings at the Princeton University Art Museum. An introductory essay by Laura M.

The first scholarly examination of the collection since Felton Gibbons' comprehensive publication of 1977, the catalogue includes an appendix of more than 150 drawings that have entered the collection since - many previously unpublished, and all fully documented with short entries. Highlights include works by celebrated masters, including Carpaccio and Modigliani, from the early Renaissance through the early Modern periods, with an emphasis on the collection's renowned holdings of works by Luca Cambiaso, Guercino and the two Tiepolos.

Raphael : the drawings by Catherine Whistler( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selection of drawings demonstrates how Raphael created a specific mode of visual invention and persuasive communication through drawing. He used drawing both as conceptual art (including brainstorming sheets) and as a practice based on attentive observation (such as drawing from the posed model). Yet Raphael's drawings also reveal how the process of drawing in itself, with its gestural rhythms and spontaneity, can be a form of thought, generating new ideas. The Oxford exhibition will present drawings that span Raphael's entire career, encompassing many of his major projects and exploring his visual language from inventive ideas to full compositions. The extraordinary range of drawings by Raphael in the Ashmolean and the Albertina, enhanced by appropriate loans, will enable this exhibition to cast new light on this familiar artist, transforming our understanding of Raphael's art

Drawing in Venice : Titian to Canaletto by Catherine Whistler( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring over a hundred drawings from the collections of graphic art at the Uffizi, Florence, and the Ashmolean Museum, and Christ Church, Oxford, Drawing in Venice is based on ground-breaking new research. Published to coincide with a major Ashmolean-Uffizi collaborative exhibition, it traces continuities in Venetian drawing over three centuries, from around 1500 down to the foundation of the first academy of art in Venice in 1750. This book highlights the significance of drawing as a concept and as a practice in the artistic life of Venice and considers this in the context of the dominance of the family studio tradition and the city's thriving print trade. The book also discusses the history of the reception and collecting of Venetian drawings both in Britain and in Italy
The reception of Titian in Britain : from Reynolds to Ruskin( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume comprises sixteen essays on the reception of Titian by British painters, collectors and critics in the long nineteenth century. The main focus falls on the first three decades of the century, in the aftermath of the exhibition of the celebrated Orléans collection in London in 1798-99. But the chronology extends from Reynolds and his contemporaries, around the time of the founding of the Royal Academy in 1768, to the more diverse and complicated reactions of the Victorian age, and even into the twentieth century"--Provided by publisher
Michelangelo and Raphael drawings by Catherine Whistler( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelangelo and Raphael, in spite of their strongly contrasting characters, have many points of contact as draughtsmen. Looking to Leonardo, who had pioneered new techniques, they transformed the practice and status of drawing, using it to achieve the same expressive and affecting ends as painting or sculpture. Both artists raised technical mastery to new heights." "In this selection from the Ashmolean Museum's famous collection, Catherine Whistler examines the technique and purpose of the drawings, and what they tell us about the artists' interests, development and working methods. Each picture is accompanied by a detailed commentary, and the whole volume provides an illuminating introduction to Renaissance drawing through the works of two of its greatest masters."--Jacket

These defining qualities are on brilliant display in this book that covers fascinating aspects of the work of Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, and many others. More than one hundred paintings, drawings, and prints are reproduced in stunning detail. Side-by-side comparisons draw readers into the conversations between Venetian artists as they tackled similar subjects and vied for commissions. The book opens with fascinating essays about the history of 16th-century Venice, the Venetian School of painting, and the techniques of the Venetian masters. As beautiful as it is informative, this book features all of the excitement and splendor of one of the most prolific and important chapters in the history of European art.
