Burning bright : essays in honour of David Bindman by Diana Dethloff( )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book celebrates the work and career of the internationally renowned art historian, David Bindman, on the occasion of his 75th birthday, and is above all a tribute to him from his former students and colleagues. With essays on sculpture, drawings, watercolours and prints, the volume reflects the extraordinary range of Bindman’s knowledge of works of art and his impact through his teaching and research on the understanding of British and European artistic developments from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. The essays cast light on questions of technique and stylistic change, patronage, collecting and iconography, and engage with issues such as the representation of race, gender, sexuality, political violence and propaganda, exile, and notions of the canon. The artists discussed here include Hogarth, Blake, Roubiliac, Thorvaldsen and Canova, all subjects of books by David Bindman, as well as Morland, Rowlandson, Gillray, Millais, Munch, Nevinson, and Heartfield.--UCL website
Michelangelo : divine draftsman & designer( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) was especially celebrated for his disegno, a term that embraces both drawing and conceptual design. Featuring more than 200 drawings as well as paintings, sculpture, and architectural plans and views, this authoritative examines Michelangelo as "the divine draftsman and designer" whose work, according to Giorgio Vasari, embodied the unity of the arts. Carmen C. Bambach delivers a thorough and engaging narrative of the artist's long career, beginning with his training under Ghirlandaio and Bertoldo and ending with his 17-year appointment as chief architect of St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican. In each thematic chapter, related drawings and other works are illustrated and discussed together, many for the first time, to provide new insights into Michelangelo's creative process. In addition to St. Peter's, other featured projects include the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the Tomb of Pope Julius II, and the architecture of the Campidoglio in Rome. Michelangelo's theories of art are also explored, and new consideration is given to his personal life and affections and their effect on his creative output. Magnificent in every way, this book will be the foremost publication about this remarkable artist for many years"--
Botticelli past and present( )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent exhibitions dedicated to Botticelli around the world show, more than ever, the significant and continued debate about the artist. Botticelli Past and Present engages with this debate. The book comprises four thematic parts, spanning four centuries of Botticelli's artistic fame and reception from the fifteenth century. Each part comprises a number of essays and includes a short introduction which positions them within the wider scholarly literature on Botticelli. The parts are organised chronologically beginning with discussion of the artist and his working practice in his own time, moving onto the progressive rediscovery of his work from the late eighteenth to the turn of the twentieth century, through to his enduring impact on contemporary art and design. Expertly written by researchers and eminent art historians and richly illustrated throughout, the broad range of essays in this book make a valuable contribution to Botticelli studies
Collecting prints and drawings in Europe, c. 1500-1750 by Christopher Baker( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prints and drawings have been keenly collected in Europe since at least the early sixteenth century. Relatively modest in price, they offered artists, amateurs and collectors of a systematic turn of mind the opportunity to put together holdings with a wide representation of different hands, schools and types of subject. Prints and drawings are traditionally treated separately, but their collecting is shown here to raise many interrelated issues. Employing a wide range of methodologies, the essays in this volume offer a number of innovative investigations into the collecting, perception, classication and display of works on paper. Recurring themes include collecting as a statement about identity, and the role of a collection as a locus of social interaction, for the discussion of attribution, technique, subject matter and other historical, artistic and literary issues. -- Publisher's website

Giuliano da Sangallo( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giuliano da Sangallo (1443-1516) headed a dynasty of Florentine architects who played a central role in the development of Renaissance architecture. Giuliano is especially notable for the influence he had on his contemporaries, introducing numerous innovations that were further developed by Bramante, Michelangelo and Palladio. His work is consistently excellent, and has endured the trials of time. For Lorenzo il Magnifico, he built the 'humanistic' villa of Poggio a Caiano, employing the first facade of a classical temple to be used in a piece of residential architecture; this model would survive for at least three centuries. Similarly, to this day his church of Santa Maria delle Carceri in Prato remains one of the greatest examples of the central-plan Renaissance church. Giuliano's fortresses, palaces, villas and churches can be found across Italy, in Savona, Pisa, Florence, Prato, Loreto, Rome and Naples. In the Eternal City, with the help of his nephew Antonio the Younger, he was instrumental in the building of the new basilica of St. Peter and of Palazzo Farnese.0

Roger Fry and Italian art by Caroline Elam( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revelatory examination of Roger Fry's fascinating but relatively little-known writings on his first love, Italian art. Drawing on articles, lectures and a wealth of new documentary materials letters, diaries and notebooks it shows how fresh and readable his writings are, and how pioneering his approach remains. Roger Fry (1866-1934) is best known as a champion of Post-Impressionism and a pioneer of Modernist art criticism. But his first love was early Italian painting, on which he became a recognized authority, publishing a monograph on Giovanni Bellini in 1899. Even after the Post-Impressionist exhibitions in 1910 and 1912 and the foundation of the Omega Workshops, Fry continued to write and lecture on Italian art right up until his death. He looked at modernism through Quattrocento eyes rather than the other way around, as is often wrongly assumed. It is impossible not to be struck by how fresh and immediately readable his writings are, how pioneering in some ways his approach remains. His work on Italian art modifies the received view of him as a pure formalist. Apart from a famous article on Giotto which Fry republished in 'Vision and Design' (1920), the writings on Italian art are relatively little known, and a selection of the best of them is republished here, thus introducing an important aspect of Fry's many-sided work to a new audience
The regal image of Richard II and the Wilton Diptych by Dillian Gordon( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a collection of selected essays discussing the Wilton Diptych, a work of art with intrinsic beauty and with an evident personal link with Richard II - a king who was ever conscious of the regal image and his God-given monarchical status. The Wilton Diptych, in the National Gallery in London, has always been the focus of attention, not only because of its intrinsic beauty as a work of art but also because its evident personal link with Richard II - a king who was ever conscious of the regal image and his God-given monarchical status. Following the important exhibition at the National Gallery in 1992, after the cleaning of the panels, a symposium was held on all aspects of the painting itself, and on the history and arts of Richard II's time. The present volume offers the paper given on that occasion, as well as some additional contributions. The essays included in this book cover many fields. Richard II's ideas of kingship are considered by Niguel Saul; his major architectural achievement, the rebuilding of Westminster Hall, is presented by Christopher Wilson, while its sculptural embellishments, the statues of English kings, are examined, together with Richard's tomb, by Phillip Lindley. Kay Staniland asks whether the King's clothing was extravagant and Marian Campbell describes the jewellery and metalwork known to have been in his possession. Shelagh Mitchell brings out Richard II's profound devotion to the cult of saints. Celia Fisher looks at the meaning of the flowers depicted in the field of Paradise in which the Virgin and Angels are set, and the individual plants on which the White Hart is couched, and Lucy Sandler compares devotional images in contemporary manuscripts. Ashok Roy comments on the technique of the Diptych. Lisa Monnas brings examples of textiles which closely match those in which the figures in the Diptych are apparelled. Nigel Morgan assesses the 'signi fication' of the banner, and Maurice Keen considers the painting as a possible crusading icon
Renaissance secrets : riddle of the dome by Tessa Coombs( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the research of Massimo Ricci, who has devoted his life to understanding the design of that amazing dome, and the insights of structural engineer Cecil Balmond, art historian Timothy Verdon, and others, this program reveals the techniques likely used by Filippo Brunelleschi to create the largest vaulted brick structure in the world. Background on the life of Brunelleschi and on the Italian Renaissance is also provided."--Container
Roger Fry & the re-evaluation of Piero della Francesca by Caroline Elam( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in Italian and English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although 19th century art historians appreciated Piero della Francesca and Bernard Berenson and Roberto Longhi loom larger in Piero criticism, Roger Fry occupies a special place in the shaping of public opinion regarding the painter. From the time he first saw the Arezzo frescoes in May 1897 Fry was under the spell of Piero, considering him the greatest Italian painter after Giotto. Elam says Fry's role was to bring together the taste for Piero in English and Italian collectors with the admiration felt for the painter by 19th-century French painters such as Puvis de Chavannes. Fry's place as founder of the Omega Workshops and his enthusiasm for Cezanne made his reverence for Piero seem to be a modern taste. Using Fry's written work, some of it unpublished, Elam notes that Fry highly regarded both Piero's handling of paint and perspective and the lack of emotion in his work. The latter Fry wrestled with, considering it variously a strength and a limitation. Fry's own painting has been said to have an "intellectual clarity of construction" and his Quakerism made him distrust display. Perhaps he felt a personal as well as a critical affinity to Piero as a painter. This text from a lecture at the Frick Collection notes that Roger Fry advised Henry Clay Frick (Rembrandt's Polish Rider) and that the Frick owns several Piero-related works (acquired after Frick's death) but asserts no Frick-Fry-Piero link
