Piero di Cosimo : fiction, invention, and fantasìa by Sharon Fermor( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piero di Cosimo (1461-1521) is one of the most intriguing figures of the Florentine Renaissance, an artist whose oeuvre includes works so enigmatic that scholars have traditionally fallen back on Vasari's account of Piero's own eccentricities to explain both their style and their content. In this book - the first study of Piero written in English for over forty years - Sharon Fermor takes issue with the received view of Piero's art. By identifying the strategies that Vasari employed in his biography, and by exposing the misconceptions it created among subsequent writers she redefines the nature of Piero's art, and his place within the culture of his time. Emphasizing the specific nature of his commissions, which were mostly private religious and secular works designed for domestic settings, she demonstrates that even Piero's most unusual paintings, such as the scenes from the life of primitive man, are coherent and meaningful compositions, not the products of an isolated eccentric at odds with the artistic community of his time. In Piero di Cosimo: Fiction, invention and fantasia, Sharon Fermor examines in, detail Piero's devotional and secular works, and his response to the natural world as revealed in his use of landscape. She offers new solutions to aspects of function and iconography that have hitherto puzzled commentators, and examines the approach to pictorial composition and to gesture that make his works distinctive. Piero's ability to visualize unusual subjects in a vivid and convincing way, and his talent for producing pleasing and original landscapes were particularly valued, and his works were sought after by some of the leading patrons of his day

The Body imaged : the human form and visual culture since the Renaissance by Kathleen Adler( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twelve essays in this book employ a wide range of visual material from varying periods in history to explore different attitudes to and representations of the human body. Each essay serves to analyse how visual representations of the body work metaphorically and systematically to define and reinforce beliefs and social practices. Many of the essays focus on a single painting, photograph, or other object to examine the wider implications of the image of the body and the body as image. An impressive range of methods and approaches is brought to bear, serving to demonstrate the intellectual vigour and breadth of the subject of the body in art, and the richness of the material with which it can be studied
