Masaccio by John T Spike( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bold and realistic, the narrative power of Masaccio's entire body of work is explored in this elegant volume. In just seven years before his death at the age of twenty-six, Masaccio (1401-1428) developed a fully naturalistic and dramatic style that inaugurated Renaissance painting. His best-known work is the fresco cycle in the Brancacci Chapel in Florence (painted with Masolino), one of the world's artistic landmarks. Recently restored, these frescoes - with all of Masaccio's other works - are shown in stunning detail in this volume. An opening essay places the painter in his historical and art-historical context, emphasizing Masaccio's innovations. The second part of the book presents two dozen important paintings in full-spread or full-page reproductions with enlarged details and annotated brief essays for each. The last section is an illustrated catalogue raisonne of all of Masaccio's works, from the frescoes on public view in the Brancacci Chapel to other panels in Europe and the United States. John T. Spike's lucid, authoritative text traces Masaccio's artistic development with particular attention to the artist's connection to Donatello and Brunelleschi. He proposes a new reading of the iconography of the influential Brancacci Chapel, and discusses the extent of Filippino Lippi's over-painting in the chapel, based on information gleaned from recent ultraviolet and infrared photography that appears in this volume. Comprehensive and engaging, this profusely illustrated exploration of Masaccio's genius opens new lines of inquiry that will be explored for decades to come

Masaccio : Saint Andrew and the Pisa altarpiece by Eliot Wooldridge Rowlands( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new volume in the Getty Museum's monograph series explores Masaccio's accomplishment as epitomized by the altarpiece of which the Saint Andrew panel once formed a part: The Pisa Altarpiece, one of the truly great polyptychs, or multipaneled paintings, in the history of Italian Renaissance art. It was produced for a chapel in the church of Santa Maria del Carmine in Pisa in 1426. The book also discusses Masaccio's short life and illustrious career; the commission for the altarpiece; its patron and program; the painting's original location; and the role church friars played in the actual commission. Finally, after examining the polyptych's various panels, it traces their later history and recounts how art historians came to identify them."--Jacket
The panel paintings of Masolino and Masaccio : the role of technique by Carl Brandon Strehlke( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The combination of detailed technical studies with art historical insight sheds new light on the life, oeuvre, and working methods of two great Italian Renaissance masters: Masolino and Masaccio." "A team from the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, the great conservation institute in Florence, joined by colleagues from the National Gallery in London and the Philadelphia Museum of Art examined all their panel paintings in European and American museums with special single sheet X-radiographs and infrared reflectographic scanning equipment. Thanks to these methods, the researchers were able to enter into the painting technique of these artists in ways that even a few years before would not have been possible." "The study has lead to a greater understanding of the artists' collaboration and their chronology. It has also been possible to reconstruct more precisely a number of altarpieces and also question earlier reconstructions for Masaccio's Pisa altarpiece of 1426. Fine examples of Masaccio's underdrawing have been revealed as well as Masolino's innovative use of oil mediums. But the book is not only technical; all technical information has been correlated to art historical concerns about early Renaissance art such as the role of the guilds, the nature of collaboration between artists and other craftsmen, and the relationship between patron and artist. In fact, the book shows how a detailed technical study can answer or open up many questions that have previously been the purview of art historians who never knocked on the door of a laboratory." "The book contains technical entries for each of the paintings as well as photographs of their fronts and backs, X-radiographs, and infrared reflectograms. The introduction by Carl Brandon Strehlke summarizes the results and reviews the usefulness of laboratory research for this type of art history. An essay by Roberto Bellucci and Cecilia Frosinini interweaves a social and documentary history of the two artists' lives with a technical study of their paintings. Jill Dunkerton and Dillian Gordon's essay is on the vicissitudes of the Pisa altarpiece and problems of its reconstruction. Strehlke and Mark Tucker's essay on the Santa Maria Maggiore altarpiece discusses the two artists' last collaboration. There are also specific essays by Bellucci and Frosinini on the Carnesecchi and San Giovenale altarpieces. A glossary defines the many technical terms." "The book has been conceived for a general reading public and not necessarily only specialists on technique or historians of early Renaissance art."--Jacket
