Piero di Cosimo : visions beautiful and strange by Dennis Geronimus( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Dennis Geronimus overcomes the scarcity of information about the artist's life and works - only one of the nearly sixty known works by Piero is actually signed and dated - and pieces together, from extensive archival research, the most complete and accurate account of Piero's life and career ever written. The book fills gaps in the artist's biography and along the way, sheds light on the social, literary, and artistic traditions that stimulated a demand for his novel work. The author provides intensive analysis of Piero's protean imagery, discusses his various patrons and commissions, and lists his extant, lost, and uncertainly-attributed works."--BOOK JACKET
Piero di Cosimo : fiction, invention, and fantasìa by Sharon Fermor( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piero di Cosimo (1461-1521) is one of the most intriguing figures of the Florentine Renaissance, an artist whose oeuvre includes works so enigmatic that scholars have traditionally fallen back on Vasari's account of Piero's own eccentricities to explain both their style and their content. In this book - the first study of Piero written in English for over forty years - Sharon Fermor takes issue with the received view of Piero's art. By identifying the strategies that Vasari employed in his biography, and by exposing the misconceptions it created among subsequent writers she redefines the nature of Piero's art, and his place within the culture of his time. Emphasizing the specific nature of his commissions, which were mostly private religious and secular works designed for domestic settings, she demonstrates that even Piero's most unusual paintings, such as the scenes from the life of primitive man, are coherent and meaningful compositions, not the products of an isolated eccentric at odds with the artistic community of his time. In Piero di Cosimo: Fiction, invention and fantasia, Sharon Fermor examines in, detail Piero's devotional and secular works, and his response to the natural world as revealed in his use of landscape. She offers new solutions to aspects of function and iconography that have hitherto puzzled commentators, and examines the approach to pictorial composition and to gesture that make his works distinctive. Piero's ability to visualize unusual subjects in a vivid and convincing way, and his talent for producing pleasing and original landscapes were particularly valued, and his works were sought after by some of the leading patrons of his day

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1462, an auspicious time for hopeful young painters in Renaissance Florence, Piero di Cosimo left the city's artistic landscape forever changed upon his death in 1522. The singular vision of this highly esteemed painter is beautifully presented in this important publication, which accompanies the first-ever retrospective of di Cosimo's astonishing career. A contemporary of luminaries such as Botticelli, Leonardo and Michelangelo, Piero di Cosimo was regarded in his day as a creative spirit of uncommon imagination. As a poet his fantastic inventions rivalled the verses of the shining lights of ancient Greece and Rome, whose myths and allegories he set out to transform in a strange language all his own. As a masterful painter of both sacred and profane subjects he could flit between complex, crowded compositions and scenes of intimate, tranquil lyricism. This groundbreaking publication demonstrates di Cosimo's range through in-depth discussions of individual works that help to substantiate specific interpretations and cases of authorship while also addressing the broader social and religious functions of image-making in the period. This unique publication makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a true Italian master, arguably Renaissance art's most spellbinding storyteller
Piero di Cosimo : ingegno astratto e difforme by Maurizia Tazartes( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Italian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artista estroso, maestro di Pontormo, è autore di straordinarie tavole mitologiche e sacre, dalla fantastica iconografia e dalla problematica cronologia, che nel volume vengono ricostruite. La sua pittura - che ha creato non pochi problemi di attribuzione, data la scarsa abitudine a firmare e datare le proprie opere - è esaminata criticamente sulla traccia delle testimonianze del Vasari e trattata nell'ambito del mondo culturale e artistico fiorentino fra il Quattrocento e il Cinquecento"--Page 4 of cover
