Master drawings close-up by Julian Brooks( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this volume is to introduce the reader to the pleasure of looking at master drawings. Through forty-five spectacular works of art, each shown in full and with an enlarged detail, the book simulates the experience of looking at a drawing through a magnifying glass: we can see the techniques and materials used and get close to the artist's creativity. They are roughly ordered by date and were chosen for inclusion because, in addition to yielding beautiful details, they encompass a wide variety of media and techniques. Accompanying short texts highlight particular aspects of each work; italicized technical terms are explained in an accessible and informative glossary at the back. Works by some of the greatest masters of the craft--Leonardo da Vinci, Durer, Raphael, Rembrandt, Ingres, Goya, Seurat, and Van Gogh--are included. The reader will gain insights into why artists made drawings, how they used the media available to them--including red chalk, watercolor, pen and ink, and pastel--and their techniques, such as hatching, stumping, squaring, and heightening. This beautiful and unpretentious book will have a wide appeal and will be especially invaluable for art students, practicing artists, and those who study art and art history."--Provided by Publisher
Andrea del Sarto : the Renaissance workshop in action by Julian Brooks( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Renaissance artist Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530) rivals Leonardo da Vinci as one of history's most accomplished draftsmen. Moving beyond the graceful elegance of his contemporaries, such as Raphael and Fra Bartolommeo, he brought unprecedented realism to his drawings through the rough and rustic use of chalk in his powerfully rendered life and compositional studies. With an immediacy few other Renaissance artists possess, del Sarto's work has proven to be inspirational and compelling to later audiences, with admirers such as Degas and Redon. This lavishly illustrated book reveals del Sarto's dazzling inventiveness and creative process, presenting fifty core drawings on paper together with a handful of paintings. The first publication to look to del Sarto's working practice through a close examination of his art from across all the world's major collections, this volume analyzes new studies of his panel underdrawings as well. The depth and breadth of its research make this book an important contribution to the study of del Sarto and Florentine Renaissance workshop practice."--Publisher's description

Taddeo and Federico Zuccaro : artist-brothers in Renaissance Rome by Julian Brooks( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important series of drawings in late-sixteenth-century Italian art - the twenty large sheets by Federico Zuccaro showing the early life of his older brother, Taddeo - was acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum in 1999. Never fully published, the series shows Taddeo's trials and tribulations as a young artist striving to achieve success in Renaissance Rome, and his eventual triumph. The drawings contain charming details of the life of a struggling artist and reveal much about the younger brother, Federico, a successful artist in his own right." "This volume - published to coincide with an exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum - presents Federico Zuccaro's twenty drawings and accompanying poems in their historical and artistic context and will be of interest to art historians and general readers alike. Of particular importance is its examination of the role of the copying of masterworks in the training of Renaissance artists."--Jacket

The lure of Italy : artists' views by Julian Brooks( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries Italy has fascinated travellers and artists. From the crumbling ruins of ancient Rome to the crystal-clear light of Venice, artists have found inspiration not only in the cities but also in the countryside and in the deep history and culture. From as early as the 1500s, artists visiting from France, England, the Netherlands, and Germany drew sketches to preserve vivid memories, often creating work of extraordinary atmosphere and beauty in the process. A growing number of tourists in the subsequent centuries fueled a further demand for souvenir views, spurring local artists to craft their own masterpieces."--Provided by publisher
