Futures and ruins : the painting of Hubert Robert by Nina L Dubin( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Futures and Ruins investigates the formation of the eighteenth-century cult of ruins in an age of risk. Focusing on the production of Hubert Robert (1733-1808) in Paris, my study examines the ruin aesthetic as an expression of a new consciousness of time, one shaped by the contingencies and uncertainties that accompanied the modernization of financial markets. Ruins were associated in late eighteenth-century imaginations with the vicissitudes of fortune and the indeterminacy of the future, at a time of acclimation to the credit economy. As figurehead of ruinisme, and a favored artist of an enterprising elite, Hubert Robert presents a revealing case study of the intersections between aesthetics and finance. Though the vast oeuvre of "Robert des Ruines"--Which encompassed landscapes in two and three dimensions, as well as architectural designs for the new Musee du Louvre--has been neglected, ruins were central to the cultural and monetary life of the capital

The virtual tourist in Renaissance Rome : printing and collecting the Speculum romanae magnificentiae by Rebecca Zorach( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1540 Antonio Lafreri, a native of Besançon transplanted to Rome, began publishing maps and other printed images that depicted major monuments and antiquities in Rome. These prints - of statues and ruined landscapes, inscriptions and ornaments, reconstructed monuments and urban denizens - evoked ancient Rome and appealed to the taste for classical antiquity that defined the Renaissance. Collections of these prints came to be known as the Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae, the “Mirror of Roman Magnificence.” Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the University of Chicago Library's Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae, the largest collection of its kind in the world, The Virtual Tourist in Renaissance Rome places these prints in their historical context and examines their publishing history. Editor Rebecca Zorach traces their journey from their creators and publishers to pilgrims, collectors, antiquarians, and dealers - “virtual tourists” who, over several centuries, revisited and reinvented the Renaissance image of Rome
