Tintoretto : the Gonzaga cycle by Tintoretto( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in German and English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacopo Tintoretto (1519-1594) is ranked along with Titian and Veronese as one of the most important Venetian painters of the 16th century and was well-known among his contemporaries for his rapid, inspired painting technique. Characteristic features of his late work, of which the Gonzaga Cycle is a part, are deep diagonal perspectives, complex, interconnected movements of figures and intense light effects." "In 1578 he was commissioned by Guglielmo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, to execute a series of four large-scale paintings, now known as the Margrave Series." "A rigorous examination of the paintings with the aid of x-ray technology, which has provided new insights into the workings methods of Tintoretto and his workshop associates, while assisting scholars in tracing the development of pictorial themes and the changes made during the work process, is a central focus of this publication." "In readable, soundly researched essays, the contributing authors - art historians and conservators - improve and expand our understanding of Tintoretto and the Gonzaga Cycle, adding new insights from several important perspectives."--Jacket
Murillo : scenes of childhood by Xanthe Brooke( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, for the first time Murillo's pictures of childhood are collected together, demonstrating how the artist's own experiences as a member of the Brotherhood of Charity, which distributed bread to the starving of Seville, invested his paintings of street children with first-hand knowledge of their lives and genuine compassion for their plight. The Catholic Church promoted the notion that the rich needed the poor in order to be able to perform acts of charity for them and thus attain grace. The crop failures of the 1670s and the resultant famine made the middle and upper classes of the city more conscious than ever of its vast population of the dispossessed. Murillo's paintings often feature apparently well-nourished though grubby children relishing fruits and tarts: part of his artistic mission was to encourage acts of charity towards the poor, and the sympathy and affection that his paintings are intended to provoke in the viewer are often designed to assist this aim."--Jacket

Canaletto : Bernardo Bellotto paints Europe by Bernardo Bellotto( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1761, Bernardo Bellotto painted his famous panorama of Munich, signing the painting "Canaletto"--as he signed many of his paintings--in tribute to his uncle and teacher Giovanni Antonio Canal. In addition to the famous panorama, Bellotto completed over the course of several months two stunning palace views for the Duke of Bavaria, Maximilian III Joseph. Placing Bellotto's Munich paintings within the artist's broader body of work, this well-illustrated book highlights the Italian painter and printmaker's capacity to create paintings of European cities that are both remarkably realistic and compositionally idealistic. Depicting Dresden, Vienna, Turin, and Warsaw, the paintings demonstrate an elaborate attention to architectural and natural detail and a sophisticated understanding of the specific quality of light in each place. By juxtaposing the paintings with Bellotto's preparatory sketches, the book also sheds light on his complicated process, which is thought to have included the use of the popular optical aid of that time, the camera obscura. Rounding out the book is a contemporary artistic reevaluation of the paintings through the medium of photography. Bringing together many well-known works by the Venetian vedute with a trove of paintings rarely seen, including a series of highly idealized architectural depictions, the book illustrates his critical contribution to this important European tradition." -- Publisher's description
