Cosimo 'il Vecchio' de' Medici, 1389-1464 : essays in commemoration of the 600th anniversary of Cosimo de' Medici's birth : including papers delivered at the Society for Renaissance Studies Sexcentenary Symposium at the Warburg Institute, London, 19 May 1989( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No wide-ranging consideration of the life and career of Cosimo 'il Vecchio' de' Medici has been published since Gutkind's justly celebrated 1938 monograph. The sexcentenary of Cosimo de' Medici's birth in 1989 provided the Society for Renaissance Studies with the opportunity and the stimulus to organize a scholarly Symposium, held at the Warburg Institute, University of London, in May 1989, to reconsider aspects of the character, political interests and art patronage of perhaps the greatest statesman of early Renaissance Italy. Published here are the seven papers delivered at the Symposium, with five others written especially for this volume. The authors discuss various facets of Cosimo's personality, his political and his cultural activities, among them his wit, his relations with the Popes of his time, his literary interests, his patronage of church building, of the fine arts, and finally the imagery of his tomb

Cosimo de' Medici and the Florentine Renaissance : the patron's oeuvre by D. V Kent( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cosimo de'Medici (1389-1464), the fabulously wealthy banker who became the leading citizen of Florence in the fifteenth century, spent lavishly as the city's most important patron of art and literature. This book is the first comprehensive examination of the whole body of works of art and architecture commissioned by Cosimo and his sons. By looking closely at this spectacular group of commissions, we gain an entirely new picture of their patron, and of the patron's point of view. Recurrent themes in the commissions - from Fra Angelico's San Marco altarpiece to the Medici palace - indicate the main interests to which Cosimo's patronage gave visual expression. Dale Kent offers new insights and perspectives on the individual objects comprising the Medici oeuvre by setting them within the context of civic and popular culture in early Renaissance Florence, and of Cosimo's life as the leader of the Medici lineage and the dominant force in the governing elite." "From the wealth of available documentation illuminating Cosimo de'Medici's life, the author considers how his own experience influenced his patronage; how the culture of Renaissance Florence provided a common idiom for the patron, his artists, and his audience; what he preferred and intended as a patron; and how focussing on his patronage of art alters the image of him that is based on his roles as banker and politician. Cosimo was as much a product as a shaper of Florentine society, Kent concludes. She identifies civic patriotism and devotion as the main themes of his oeuvre and argues that religious imperatives may well have been more important than political ones in shaping the art for which he was responsible and its reception."--Jacket
