The aesthetics of Italian Renaissance art : a reconsideration of style by Hellmut Wohl( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Hellmut Wohl redefines style in Italian Renaissance art in light of contemporary testimony and close rereading of seminal works. Through analysis of visual and textual evidence, he posits that Renaissance artists and their viewers conceived of art as decoration of surfaces. Their preferences, which were largely shaped by the classical theory of ornate style in rhetoric, provide a useful guide to the stylistic variables in quattrocento and cinquecento art; to the relationship among narrative, figurative, and decorative elements; and to the link between the arts of painting, sculpture, wood and marble intarsie, mosaic, and stained glass. Offering a new approach to the issue of style, Wohl suggests that the scientific dimensions of Renaissance art were less important to contemporaries than their function as decoration and ornamentation."--Jacket
The lives of Annibale & Agostino Carracci by Giovanni Pietro Bellori( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first complete translation of the biographies of fifteen artists, including Annibale Carracci, Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Poussin, written by the seventeenth-century antiquarian Giovan Pietro Bellori. Originally conceived as a continuation of Vasari's famous Lives, it is a fundamental source for seventeenth-century Italian art and artistic theory, providing detailed descriptions of extant and lost works of art, while casting light on the cultural politics of contemporary Rome and the relations between Rome and France. The importance of Bellori's Lives lies in the scrupulous documentation of artists, many of whom he knew personally; the author's detailed descriptions of their works; and his exposition of the classicist theory of art in the introductory lecture, the Idea. This volume contains the twelve Lives published in the original edition of 1672 and three Lives (Guido Reni, Andrea Sacchi, and Carlo Maratti) that survive in manuscript form and that were published for the first time in 1942"--Jacket
