"In commemoration of the five hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary of the death of Fra Angelico (about 1395-1455), one of the foremost artists of the Italian Renaissance, The Metropolitan Museum of Art set out to reexamine his career and to establish a more historically accurate profile of the innovative, extraordinarily gifted "angelic friar,' in order to dispel the myths and legends that have eclipsed the details of his life. New documentary research and standards for attributions, developed over the last three decades, provided the impetus for this reappraisal - only the second major exhibition of Fra Angelico's art ever held, and the first since 1955. Comprising about seventy-five paintings, drawings, and manuscript illuminations ascribed to Angelico and spanning the period from 1410 to 1455, as well as about forty works by his collaborators, this presentation includes several newly discovered paintings and a number of new proposals for reconstructions of important, dispersed altarpieces. Additionally, drawings by the master are analyzed in terms of their original function and in the context of discussion of the artist's workshop, its identifiable members, and their respective contribution to its artistic output." "In essays and related entries, the first seven sections of the catalogue follow the course of Angelico's career. The study opens with his earliest, largely undocumented, activity as a painter (in the 1410s), before he joined the Dominican order, emphasizing those works that reflect his artistic, intellectual, and spiritual milieu. In dealing with the paintings of the 1420s, many of which will be unfamiliar to the general public and are the subject of widespread disagreement among scholars regarding dating and attribution, the authors attempt to establish their chronology within the master's oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET
The portrait in the Renaissance by John Wyndham Pope-Hennessy ( Book )
38 editions published between 1966 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here John Pope-Hennessy takes as his subject two centuries of experiment in portraiture during the Renaissance. He shows how the Renaissance cult of individuality brought with it a demand that the features of the individual be perpetuated. This concept was first manifested in the portraits that fill the great Florentine fresco cycles and led, later in the fifteenth century, to the creation of the independent portrait by such artists as Botticelli, Antonio Pollaiuolo, Giovanni Bellini, and Antonello da Messina. The author goes on to describe the process by which Titian and the great artists of the High Renaissance transformed the portrait from a record of appearance into an analysis of character.."--pub desc

"In this classic guide to Piero della Francesca's work, John Pope-Hennessy takes the paintings and frescoes one by one, describing the stories they portray, their meticulous composition and the questions about them that remain unanswered. He explains the new ideas in the air in 1439 when the young Piero joined his first studio as well as the crucial and surprising role of fate in the commission for the church of San Francisco." "This volume brings together for the first time this essential text and Aldous Huxley's "The Best Picture," the famous essay that inspired Pope-Hennessy to seek out the works that now constitute the pilgrimage known as The Piero della Francesca Trail."--BOOK JACKET
