Between Renaissance and Baroque : Jesuit art in Rome, 1565-1610 by Gauvin A Bailey( )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between Renaisance and Baroque is a stunning achievement - the first book to be written about the original painting commissions of the Jesuits in Rome. Offering a uniquely comprehensive and comparative analysis of the paintings and stuccoes which adorned all of the Jesuit foundations in the city during their first half century of existence, the study treats some of the most crucial monuments of late Renaissance painting including the original decorations of the church of the Gesu and the Collegio Romano, and the martyrdom frescoes at S. Stefano Rotondo."--Jacket
Architecture and urbanism in the French Atlantic empire : state, church, and society, 1604-1830 by Gauvin A Bailey( )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spanning from the West African coast to the Canadian prairies and south to Louisiana, the Caribbean, and Guiana, France's Atlantic empire was one of the largest political entities in the Western Hemisphere. Yet despite France's status as a nation at the forefront of architecture and the structures and designs from this period that still remain, its colonial building program has never been considered on a hemispheric scale. Drawing from hundreds of plans, drawings, photographic field surveys, and extensive archival sources, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire focuses on the French state's and the Catholic Church's ideals and motivations for their urban and architectural projects in the Americas. In vibrant detail, Gauvin Alexander Bailey recreates a world that has been largely destroyed by wars, natural disasters, and fires - from Cap-François (now Cap-Haïtien), which once boasted palaces in the styles of Louis XV and formal gardens patterned after Versailles, to failed utopian cities like Kourou in Guiana. Vividly illustrated with examples of grand buildings, churches, and gardens, as well as simple houses and cottages, this volume also brings to life the architects who built these structures, not only French military engineers and white civilian builders, but also the free people of colour and slaves who contributed so much to the tropical colonies. Taking readers on a historical tour through the striking landmarks of the French colonial landscape, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire presents a sweeping panorama of an entire hemisphere of architecture and its legacy."--

Art on the Jesuit missions in Asia and Latin America, 1542-1773 by Gauvin A Bailey( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Jesuit missionaries ventured from Europe to newly discovered territories in Asia and Latin America, they brought with them the rich traditions of Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture. What happened to the artistic and social practices already thriving in the communities that the missionaries encountered is the story told by art historian and Jesuit specialist Gauvin Alexander Bailey." "Bailey argues that this cross-pollination of early modern art became the first truly global visual currency for cultural exchange. Through a sweeping look at Japan, China, Mughul India, and Paraguay, the author focuses on four of the most flourishing artistic encounters and discovers much unrecognized or misunderstood art. He overturns the simple thesis that art was imposed on subject cultures in favour of the more difficult paradigm of exchange."--Jacket

The Jesuits and the arts, 1540-1773( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made in the Americas : the new world discovers Asia by Dennis Carr( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Made in the Americas reveals the overlooked history of Asia's profound influence on the arts of the colonial Americas. Beginning in the 16th century, European outposts in the New World, especially those in New Spain, became a major nexus of the Asian export trade. Craftsmen from Canada to Peru, inspired by the sophisticated designs and advanced techniques of these imported goods, combined Asian styles with local traditions to produce unparalleled furniture, silverwork, textiles, ceramics, lacquer, painting and architectural ornaments. Among the exquisite objects featured in this book, from across the hemisphere and spanning the 17th to the early 19th centuries, are folding screens made in Mexico in imitation of imported Japanese and Chinese screens; blue-and-white talavera ceramics copied from Chinese porcelains; luxuriously woven textiles, made to replicate fine silks and cottons from China and India; devotional statues that adapt Buddhist gods into Christian saints; and "japanned" furniture produced in Boston that simulates Asian lacquer finishes. The stories told by the objects gathered in Made in the Americas bring to life the rich cultural interchange and the spectacular arts of the first global age"
The Jesuits : cultures, sciences, and the arts ; 1540-1773 by John W O'Malley( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2019 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have seen scholars in a wide range of disciplines re-evaluate the history of the Society of Jesus. In 1997, a group of scholars convened a major international conference to discuss the world of the Jesuits between 1540 and 1773 (the year of its suppression by papal edict). This meeting led to the creation of the first volume in this series, The Jesuits, which examined the worldwide Jesuit undertaking in such fields as music, art, architecture, devotional writing, mathematics, physics, astronomy, natural history, public performance, and education, with special attention to the Jesuits' interaction with non-European cultures.This second volume, following a second conference in 2002, continues in a similar path as its predecessor, complementing the regional coverage with contributions on the Flemish and Iberian provinces, on the missions in Japan, and in post-Suppression Russia and the United States. The performing arts, like theatre and music, are broadly treated, and, in addition to continued attention to painting and architecture, the volume contains essays on a range of objets d'art, including statuary, reliquaries, and alter pieces - as well as on gardens, mechanical clocks, and related automata. Other themes include finances, natural theology, censorship within the Jesuit order, and the Society's relationship to women.Perhaps most important, the volume gives particular attention to the eighteenth century, the 'age of disasters' for the Jesuits - the negative papal ruling on Chinese Rites, the destruction the of Paraguay Reductions, and the suppressions of the order that began in Portugal and that culminated in the general Suppression of 1773. With contributions from distinguished scholars from a dozen different countries, The Jesuits, II continues in the illustrious tradition of its predecessor to make an important contribution to religious memory
The Andean hybrid baroque : convergent cultures in the churches of colonial Peru by Gauvin A Bailey( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""In spite of decades of scholarship, our understanding of the Andean Hybrid Baroque and its churches has been severely handicapped by a lack of archival documentation and consistent stylistic analysis ... I wrote this study specifically to fill these gaps."--The Introduction" "The Andean Hybrid Baroque is the first comprehensive study of the architecture and architectural sculpture of southern Peru in the late colonial period (1660s-1820s), an enduring and polemical subject in Latin American art history. In the southern Andes during the last century and a half of colonial rule, when the Spanish crown was losing its grip on the Americas and Amerindian groups began organizing into activist and increasingly violent political movements, a style of architectural sculpture emerged that remains one of the most vigorous and creative outcomes of the meeting of two cultures. The Andean Hybrid Baroque (also known as "Mestizo Style") was a flourishing school of carving distinguished by its virtuoso combination of European late Renaissance and Baroque forms with Andean sacred and profane symbolism, some of it originating in the pre-Hispanic era. The Andean Hybrid Baroque found its genesis and most comprehensive iconographical expression in the architecture of Catholic churches, chapels, cloisters, and conventual buildings." "Drawing on hundreds of primary documents and on ethno-historical and anthropological literature that has rarely been applied to an art-historical subject, Gauvin Alexander Bailey provides the most substantial study of Colonial Peruvian architecture in decades. The product of six years of photographic surveys in Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina, as well as research in governmental and ecclesiastical archives in Latin America and Europe, Bailey's richly illustrated study examines the construction history and decoration of fifty churches. It offers a fundamentally new understanding of the chronology, regional variations, and diffusion of the Andean Hybrid Baroque style, as well as a fresh interpretation of its relationship to indigenous Andean culture."--
The spiritual rococo : decor and divinity from the salons of Paris to the missions of Patagonia by Gauvin A Bailey( Book )

24 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking approach to Rococo religious décor and spirituality in Europe and South America, The Spiritual Rococo addresses three basic conundrums that impede our understanding of eighteenth-century aesthetics and culture. Why did the Rococo, ostensibly the least spiritual style in the pre-Modern canon, transform into one of the world's most important modes for adorning sacred spaces? And why is Rococo still treated as a decadent nemesis of the Enlightenment when the two had fundamental characteristics in common? This book seeks to answer these questions by treating Rococo as a global phenomenon for the first time and by exploring its moral and spiritual dimensions through the lens of populist French religious literature of the day-a body of work the author calls the 'Spiritual Rococo' and which has never been applied directly to the arts. The book traces Rococo's development from France through Central Europe, Portugal, Brazil, and South America by following a chain of interlocking case studies, whether artistic, literary, or ideological, and it also considers the parallel diffusion of the literature of the Spiritual Rococo in these same regions, placing particular emphasis on unpublished primary sources such as inventories. One of the ultimate goals of this study is to move beyond the cliché of Rococo's frivolity and acknowledge its essential modernity. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, The Spiritual Rococo not only integrates different art historical fields in novel ways but also interacts with church and social history, literary and post-colonial studies, and anthropology, opening up new horizons in these fields

The Jesuits : cultures, sciences, and the arts, 1540-1773 by John W O'Malley( )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years scholars in a range of disciplines have begun to re-evaluate the history of the Society of Jesus. Approaching the subject with new questions and methods, they have reconsidered the importance of the Society in many sectors, including those related to the sciences and the arts. They have also looked at the Jesuits as emblematic of certain traits of early modern Europeans, especially as those Europeans interacted with 'the Other' in Asia and the Americas.Originating in an international conference held at Boston College in 1997, the thirty-five essays here reflect this new historiographical trend. Focusing on the Old Society- the Society before its suppression in 1773 by papal edict- they examine the worldwide Jesuit undertaking in such fields as music, art, architecture, devotional writing, mathematics, physics, astronomy, natural history, public performance, and education, and they give special attention to the Jesuits' interaction with non-European cultures, in North and South America, China, India, and the Philippines. A picture emerges not only of the individual Jesuit, who might be missionary, diplomat, architect, and playwright over the course of his life in the Society, but also of the immense and many-faceted Jesuit enterprise as forming a kind of 'cultural ecosystem'.The Jesuits of the Old Society liked to think they had a way of proceeding special to themselves. The question, Was there a Jesuit style, a Jesuit corporate culture? is the thread that runs through this interdisciplinary collection of studies
The palace of Sans-Souci in Milot, Haiti (ca. 1806-1813) : the untold story of the Potsdam of the rainforest = Der Palast von Sans-Souci in Milot, Haiti (ca. 1806-1813) : das vergessene Potsdam im Regenwald by Gauvin A Bailey( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most mysterious buildings in the Western hemisphere, King Henri Christophe's lavish neoclassical palace in the rain forest, crowns the small Haitian town of Milot. Begun less than a decade after the Haitian Revolution for independence (1804) by the first black African king in the Americas, this massive monument was built to showcase Haiti's power and self-confidence. Despite its status as UNESCO World Heritage and a tourist attraction, the unusual building has never before been the subject of a study. On the basis of unpublished archival sources and exact photographic documentation, this book is the first to publish detailed information about the genesis this extraordinary architecture and the story of its builder

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Über der kleinen haitianischen Stadt Milot thront noch heute eines der mysteriösesten Gebäude in der westlichen Hemisphäre: König Henry Christophes opulenter klassizistischer Palast im Regenwald. Weniger als ein Jahrzehnt nach der haitianischen Unabhängigkeit (1804) von Amerikas erstem schwarzafrikanischen König begonnen, wurde dieses massive Monument errichtet, um Haitis Macht und Selbstbewusstsein in einer feindseligen Welt aus übergriffigen Monarchien zur Schau zu stellen. Trotz seines Status als UNESCO-Welterbe und Touristenattraktion war das außergewöhnliche Gebäude nie zuvor Gegenstand einer konzentrierten wissenschaftlichen Studie. Auf Grundlage unveröffentlichter Archivquellen und einer exakten fotografischen Dokumentation wird in diesem Band erstmals Genaueres über die Entstehungsgeschichte und die Erbauer dieser außergewöhnlichen Architektur veröffentlicht. Das Buch entstand im Rahmen der Panofsky-Professur am Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte München, die Gauvin Alexander Bailey im Jahr 2017 innehatte
