Titian : essays by Mike Venezia( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tiziano Vecellio, known in England as Titian, is one of the undisputed masters of Western art." "Written by some of the world's most renowned Titian scholars, this beautiful and generously illustrated book accompanies the first monographic exhibition in Britain devoted to the work of this extraordinary artist. The exhibition includes over forty paintings from every stage of Titian's long career, including masterpieces such as the group of paintings commissioned for the studiolo of Alfonso d'Este, shown together for the first time since they first hung in the Duke's place in Ferrara." "The catalogue to the exhibition is preceded by four authoritative essays investigating different aspects of Titian's work: Titian's life and times, by Charles Hope; his skill as a painter of portraits, by Jennifer Fletcher; his painting technique, by Jill Dunkerton; and an examination of Titian replicas and variants, by Miguel Falomir. These provide the background for a detailed discussion of the works in the exhibition. Short essays by David Jaffe introduce the main themes. The wide scope of the book and its lavish illustrations make this the most informative and accessible introduction to Titian for many years."--Jacket

The autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini by Benvenuto Cellini( Book )

16 editions published between 1956 and 1983 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith; a passionate craftsman who was admired and resented by the most powerful political and artistic personalities in sixteenth-century Florence, Rome and Paris. He was also a murderer and a braggart, a shameless adventurer who at different times experienced both papal persecution and imprisonment, and the adulation of the royal court. Inn-keepers and prostitutes, kings and cardinals, artists and soldiers rub shoulders in the pages of his notorious autobiography: a vivid portrait of the manners and morals of both the rulers of the day and of their subjects. Written with supreme powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humor, this is an unrivalled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici
