The Renaissance portrait : from Donatello to Bellini by Bode-Museum( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Renaissance Portrait, ' which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Bode-Museum, Berlin, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, provides new research and insight into the early history of portraiture in Italy, examining in detail how its major art centers--Florence, the priestly courts, and Venice--saw the rapid development of portraiture as closely linked to Renaissance society and politics, ideas of the individual, and concepts of beauty. Essays by leading scholars provide a thorough introduction to Renaissance portraiture, while individual catalogue entries illustrate and extensively discuss more than 160 magnificent examples of painting, drawing, manuscript illumination, sculpture, and medallic portraiture by such artists as Donatello, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Ghirlandaio, Pisanello, Mantegna, Antonello da Messina, and Giovanni Bellini."--Inside cover
Renaissance Florence : the art of the 1470s by Patricia Lee Rubin( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1470s - the decade of Lorenzo de'Medici's rise to power - was a remarkable moment in Florence's history. It was a time of intense activity for the city's creative workforce. Beauty had long been an intrinsic part of the city's identity and prestige, and rich and powerful Florentine families saw cultivation of the visual arts as an essential way to assert their influence, commissioning artists and craftsmen to create impressive paintings, objects and monuments to enhance their status." "Published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Gallery, London, this illustrated volume offers an introduction to the principal patrons, projects and artistic personalities within Florence during this period. It concentrates on the activities of the leading artists - Andrea del Verrocchio, Antonio and Piero del Pollaiuolo, Sandro Botticelli, Filippino Lippi and the young Leonardo da Vinci - illustrating their special contributions and highlighting their differences, common sources, ambitions and responses to each other."--Jacket

Rubin shows that Vasari had distinct ideas about the nature of his task as a biographer, about the importance of interpretation, judgment, and example - about the historian's art.

Art, memory, and family in Renaissance Florence by Giovanni Ciappelli( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art, Memory, and Family in Renaissance Florence examines the relationship between the production of objects and the production of memory and history in fifteenth-century Florence. Recent studies of Florence by cultural, social, political, and economic historians have resulted in extensive knowledge of family life in this period and the significance of family, kin, and neighborhood in the social and political life of the city. Investigating the means and modes of formulating and recording those relationships, the essays in this study illuminate the connections between society, art, and collective memory."--Jacket
Seen from behind : perspectives on the male body and Renaissance art by Patricia Lee Rubin( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance bodies, dressed and undressed, have not lacked attention in art historical literature, but scholarship on the male body has generally concentrated on phallic-oriented masculinity and been connected to issues of patriarchy and power. This original book examines the range of meaning that has been attached to the male backside in Renaissance art and culture, the transformation of the base connotation of the image to high art, and the question of homoerotic impulses or implications of admiring male figures from behind. Representations of the male body's behind have often been associated with things obscene, carnivalesque, comical, or villainous. Presenting serious scholarship with a deft hand, 'Seen from Behind' expands our understanding of the motif of the male buttocks in Renaissance art, revealing both continuities and changes in the ways the images convey meaning and have been given meaning

Botticelli : heroines + heroes by Sandro Botticelli( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Botticelli: Heroines and Heroes explores the work of the legendary Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, focusing on a genre called spalliera that Botticelli employed with staggering originality. The catalgue and exhibition, held at the Gardner Museum, Boston, include significant loans from European and American public collections. Accompanying the exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, this catalogue explores the work of legendary Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli (about 1444-1510). Today the alluring and enigmatic Primavera forms the cornerstone of his modern fame, but its familiarity belies distant origins in the heady intellectual environment of Laurentian Florence and the residences of its moneyed elite. Part of a genre called spalliera, so named for their installation around shoulder (spalla) height, this type of painting introduced beautiful, strange, and disturbing images into lavish Florentine homes. With staggering originality, Botticelli reinvented ancient subjects for the domestic interior, paneling patrician bedrooms with moralizing tales and offering erudite instruction to their influential inhabitants. Exhibition: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, USA (14.02.- 19.05.2019)
