Masaccio by John T Spike ( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 661 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.

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
"Urban Larsson is a traditional painter. For the last 10 years he has lived in Amsterdam. Larsson, born in 1966 in Stockholm, is a prolific painter who not only paints portraits, but also still lifes, landscapes and nudes. His portraits show psychological insights and accurate characterisation. His studio catches light from the north and is a much-frequented spot for people looking for classical but non-photographic portraiture. Through his working methods Larsson is directly linked to the great portrait painters and studios of the nineteenth century and he prepares his materials and paint using the time-tested techniques of previous centuries. This book contains an overview of his work."--BOOK JACKET.
