Paolo Veronese : a master and his workshop in Renaissance Venice by Virginia Brilliant( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Polish and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paolo Veronese (1528-1588) is recognized as one of the giants of Venetian Renaissance painting. His artistic production was richly varied, extending from imposing altarpieces to smaller religious paintings for private clients, from grand portraits to sensual episodes drawn from the classical tradition. He was also an outstanding draughtsman, and his graphic oeuvre randed from preliminary sketches to highly finished chiaroscuro sheets. Produced to accompany an exhibition celebrating the artist at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, this magnificently illustrated book displays Veronese's extraordinary versatility and examines his artistic practice, concentrating on works from American and Canadian museums and private collections. For a sixteenth-century painter, many of whose works are in fresco or on enormous canvases still in situ, Veronese is unusually well represented in North America. At the same time, the broad spectrum of Veronese as a painter and draughtsman has not been available to American audiences in over two decades. This publication, with contributions by an international team of experts and focusing attention on little-known works as well as acknowledged masterpieces, constitutes a major contribution to Veronese studies."--Jacket
Piero di Cosimo : the poetry of painting in Renaissance Florence by Gretchen A Hirschauer( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1462, an auspicious time for hopeful young painters in Renaissance Florence, Piero di Cosimo left the city's artistic landscape forever changed upon his death in 1522. The singular vision of this highly esteemed painter is beautifully presented in this important publication, which accompanies the first-ever retrospective of di Cosimo's astonishing career. A contemporary of luminaries such as Botticelli, Leonardo and Michelangelo, Piero di Cosimo was regarded in his day as a creative spirit of uncommon imagination. As a poet his fantastic inventions rivalled the verses of the shining lights of ancient Greece and Rome, whose myths and allegories he set out to transform in a strange language all his own. As a masterful painter of both sacred and profane subjects he could flit between complex, crowded compositions and scenes of intimate, tranquil lyricism. This groundbreaking publication demonstrates di Cosimo's range through in-depth discussions of individual works that help to substantiate specific interpretations and cases of authorship while also addressing the broader social and religious functions of image-making in the period. This unique publication makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a true Italian master, arguably Renaissance art's most spellbinding storyteller

Dangerous women by Mary D Garrard( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Old and New Testaments are full of compelling female characters: good wives and bad, courageous heroines, and deceptive - sometimes deadly - femmes fatales. 'Dangerous Women' presents works from the rich holdings of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art that explore different artists' responses to the women of the Bible. Paintings by Pietro da Cortona, Francesco Cairo, and Fede Galizia and others stand as a reminder of how dangerous biblical women have continued to loom large in the modern imagination. These stories in this volume show how narratives of power are constructed, interpreted, and continue to evolve over the course of time. While some women saved their people, were paragons of virtue, or repented, others were purveyors of sin, harlots, and seductresses. Even if it was through their misbehaviour, all of these women - from Mary Magdalene, to Judith and Esther, to Salome and Potiphar's Wife - shaped biblical history.00Exhibition: Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum and the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Miami, USA (08.09.-30.12.2018)

Sacred gifts and worldly treasures : Medieval masterworks from the Cleveland Museum of art by Cleveland Museum of Art( Book )

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

"In the middle of the first middle of the first millennium the political landscape of Europe was a lawless wasteland where widely scattered monasteries sheltered what remained of classical culture as well as the seeds of what would become the lofty achievements of medieval art, scholasticism, and humanism. In these sanctuaries and in towns fortified against constant warfare, precious objects, carefully wrought by hand, were made to glorify God and celebrate the pleasures of life at court. A thousand years of aesthetic culture, from the austere spirituality of the Byzantine Icon of the Virgin to the exalted frivolity of the French Table Fountain, is presented in this book, in pages filled with golden caskets set with jewels, tiny paintings in sacred books, and saints and angels in marble and gold."--Jacket
