Reclaiming Rome : cardinals in the fifteenth century by Carol M Richardson( )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifteenth century was a critical juncture for the College of Cardinals. They were accused of prolonging the exile in Avignon and causing the schism. At the councils at the beginning of the period their very existence was questioned. This book focuses on a relatively unknown period for Renaissance art history and the history of Rome
Old Saint Peter's, Rome by Rosamond McKitterick( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St Peter's Basilica in Rome is arguably the most important church in Western Christendom, and is among the most significant buildings anywhere in the world. However, the church that is visible today is a youthful upstart, only four hundred years old compared to the twelve-hundred-year-old church whose site it occupies. A very small proportion of the original is now extant, entirely covered over by the new basilica, but enough survives to make reconstruction of the first St Peter's possible and much new evidence has been uncovered in the past thirty years. This is the first full study of the older church, from its late antique construction to Renaissance destruction, in its historical context. An international team of historians, art historians, archaeologists and liturgists explores aspects of the basilica's history, from its physical fabric to the activities that took place within its walls and its relationship with the city of Rome."--
Viewing Renaissance art by Kim Woods( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the values, priorities, and motives of patrons and the purposes and functions of art works produced north and south of the Alps and in post-Byzantine Crete. It begins by considering the social range and character of Renaissance patronage and ends with a study of Hans Holbein the Younger and the reform of religious images in Basle and England. Viewing Renaissance Art considers a wide range of audiences and patrons from the rulers of France to the poorest confraternities in Florence. The overriding premise is that art was not a neutral matter of stylistic taste but an aspect of material production in which values were invested--whether religious, cultural, social, or political
Locating Renaissance art by Carol M Richardson( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and French and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance art history is traditionally identified with Italian centers of production, and Florence in particular. Instead, this book explores the dynamic interchange between European artistic centers and artists and the trade in works of art. It also considers the impact of differing locations on art and artists and some of the economic, political, and cultural factors crucial to the emergence of an artistic center. During c.1420-1520, no city or court could succeed in isolation and so artists operated within a network of interests and local and international identities. The case studies presented in this book portray the Renaissance as an exciting international phenomenon, with cities and courts inextricably bound together in a web of economic and political interests
Renaissance art reconsidered : an anthology of primary sources( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renaissance Art Reconsidered: An Anthology of Primary Sources offers an intimate glimpse into the reality of making art, and the geographical, material and theoretical factors that shaped artistic production between 1400 and 1530. This book widens the traditional Italian focus of Renaissance art history, considering texts from northern Europe and the Mediterranean alongside texts relating to Italian art. Unprecedented in its range, this collection brings together a wide variety of contracts, extracts from treatises, letters, diaries, wills and other important documents, many of which are translated into English for the first time, to provide crucial insight into the art and the context in which it was produced." -back cover
The possessions of a Cardinal : politics, piety, and art, 1450-1700 by David S Chambers( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A set of case studies exploring the tastes, passions, and possessions of cardinals in Renaissance and Baroque Rome"--Provided by publisher
Dialogue on the errors and abuses of painters by Giovanni Andrea Gilio( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giovanni Andrea Gilio's Dialogue on the Errors and Abuses of Painters (1564) is one of the first treatises on art published in the post-Tridentine period. It remains a key primary source for the discussion of the reform of art as it unfolded at the time of the Council of Trent and the Catholic Reformation. Through a spirited conversation among six protagonists, Gilio grapples with a host of issues, from the relationship between poetry and painting, to the function of religious images, to the effects such images have on viewers. The primary focus is the proper representation of history, especially sacred history, and Michelangelo's Last Judgment fresco in the Sistine Chapel is the exemplary case. Michelangelo's painting is both praised and condemned as an example of the possibilities and limits of art. Although Gilio's dialogue is often used to point out the Roman Catholic Church's more controlling view of art and artists, the unabridged text--here translated into English in full for the first time--reveals the nuanced and provisional debates about how subject matter should be represented in this crucial period
Renaissance art reconsidered by Kim Woods( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

v.1. This book explores key themes in the making of Renaissance painting, sculpture, architecture, and prints: the use of specific techniques and materials, theory and practice, change and continuity in artistic procedures, conventions and values. It also reconsiders the importance of mathematical perspective, the assimilation of the antique revival, and the illusion of life. Embracing the full significance of Renaissance art requires understanding how it was made. As manifestations of technical expertise and tradition as much as innovation, artworks of this period reveal highly complex creative processes--allowing us an inside view on the vexed issue of the notion of a renaissance
