📒A New History Of Italian Renaissance Art ✍ Stephen Campbell
✏A New History of Italian Renaissance Art Book Summary : Campbell and Cole, respected teachers and active researchers, draw on traditional and current scholarship to present complex interpretations in this new edition of their engaging account of Italian Renaissance art. The book's unique decade-by-decade structure is easy to follow, and permits the authors to tell the story of art not only in the great centres of Rome, Florence and Venice, but also in a range of other cities and sites throughout Italy, including more in this edition from Naples, Padua and Palermo. This approach allows the artworks to take centre-stage, in contrast to the book's competitors, which are organized by location or by artist. Other updates for this edition include an expanded first chapter on the Trecento, and a new 'Techniques and Materials' appendix that explains and illustrates all of the major art-making processes of the period. Richly illustrated with high-quality reproductions and new photography of recent restorations, it presents the classic canon of Renaissance painting and sculpture in full, while expanding the scope of conventional surveys by offering a more thorough coverage of architecture, decorative and domestic arts, and print media.

📒The Sensory World Of Italian Renaissance Art ✍ François Quiviger
✏The Sensory World of Italian Renaissance Art Book Summary : During the Renaissance, new ideas progressed alongside new ways of communicating them, and nowhere is this more visible than in the art of this period. In The Sensory World of Italian Renaissance Art, François Quiviger explores the ways in which the senses began to take on a new significance in the art of the sixteenth century. The book discusses the presence and function of sensation in Renaissance ideas and practices, investigating their link to mental imagery—namely, how Renaissance artists made touch, sound, and scent palpable to the minds of their audience. Quiviger points to the shifts in ideas and theories of representation, which were evolving throughout the sixteenth century, and explains how this shaped early modern notions of art, spectatorship, and artistic creation. Featuring many beautiful images by artists such as Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Pontormo, Michelangelo, and Brueghel, The Sensory World of Renaissance Art presents a comprehensive study of Renaissance theories of art in the context of the actual works they influenced. Beautifully illustrated and extensively researched, it will appeal to students and scholars of art history.
📒A Short History Of The Italian Renaissance ✍ Virginia Cox
✏A Short History of the Italian Renaissance Book Summary : The extraordinary creative energy of Renaissance Italy lies at the heart of modern western culture. This creativity extended far beyond the visual arts and architecture: dress history, dance history, food history, ritual and ceremonial all contributed to this vibrant rebirth. Virginia Cox here explores the material and economic output of the period, from the late 13th to the 16th century, when Italy led the world in painting, building, science, literature and music. As the medieval period exploded into a new era of self-confidence, a rediscovery of classical authors and their philosophical principles coincided with the political and economic rise of Florence, especially under the powerful Medici princes, and the later ascendancy of Venice and Rome. But the Renaissance enjoyed a rich regionality beyond these familiar centres. The author thus explores the arts in Milan, Ferrara, Mantua, Urbino and even Naples. She examines too the impact of rhetoric and performance on key texts like Machiavelli’s The Prince and Castiglione’s Book of the Courtier, as well as the role of women, both as patrons of the arts and creative artists in their own right. ‘Renaissance woman’, Cox boldly argues, is as important a legacy as ‘Renaissance man’.
📒The Traveling Artist In The Italian Renaissance ✍ David Young Kim
✏The Traveling Artist in the Italian Renaissance Book Summary : In this important and revelatory book, David Young Kim examines how mobility and travel affected the identities and artistic styles of artists such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Lotto, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian. It is well known that Italian Renaissance artists traveled; this book considers the cultural and historical contexts of their voyages. Kim establishes connections between artists’ travel and responses to their work in early modern literature, with critical analysis of 16th-century written culture. Relevant themes in Giorgio Vasari’s monumental Lives of the Artists are explored in depth. Through new readings of critical ideas, prejudices, and entire biographies in Renaissance art literature, Kim makes a groundbreaking case for the circuitous development of the artists’ individual styles, offering a complex understanding of how the concepts of mobility and identity were changing in a shifting and widening world.
✏The Faun in the Garden Michelangelo and the Poetic Origins of Italian Renaissance Art Book Summary : Sequel to Barolsky's Vasari trilogy and pendant volume in particular to Michelangelo's Nose, this book continues the author's examination of the poetic imagination of Michelangelo's autobiography in relation to his art and poetry. With his usual brio, Barolsky suggests that Michelangelo's concerns with poetic origins are linked in subtle, diverse ways to the meanings of Botticelli's Primavera, Signorelli's Pan, Piero di Cosimo's Prometheus pictures, Raphael's Parnassus, and Titan's Fete Champetre. Focusing on the unexpected importance for Michelangelo of the pastoral, Barolsky illuminates the role of Ovid both in the artist's biography and in his theory and practice of art. Conceiving his book as a contribution to our understanding of poetic imagination in the age of the Renaissance, Barolsky elaborates here on his previous discussion of Renaissance, Barolsky elaborates here on his previous discussion of Renaissance biography in the tradition of Boccaccio's fables.
