Most widely held works by Elizabeth Cropper
Nicolas Poussin : friendship and the love of painting by Elizabeth Cropper( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Hebrew and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By investigating the important figures who were close to the painter Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665), Elizabeth Cropper and Charles Dempsey allow the reader to enter not only the Rome where he lived but also the Rome of antiquity, which he admired and tried to reconstruct. The authors argue that Poussin's works were structured by his friendships, as well as by his study of ancient history and early Christian archaeology, his exploration of the poetry and mystery of ancient places, and his conception of his paintings as gifts rather than commercial objects. By looking into this rich background, they also show how Poussin introduced into his theory and practice of painting a new concept of the inherent expressiveness of form that was quite different from the then prevailing conventions for depicting the passions and affections
Pontormo, Bronzino, and the Medici : the transformation of the Renaissance portrait in Florence by Carl Brandon Strehlke( Book )
11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book accompanies an exhibition of the same name held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art upon the completion of conservation of Jacopo Pontormo's famous portrait of Duke Alessandro de'Medici. Centering on Pontormo's painting and Agnolo Bronzino's equally renowned depiction of another Medici duke, Cosimo I, the exhibition gathers from American and European collections nearly fifty sixteenth-century works that demonstrate the ways in which these artists changed the Renaissance portrait during a tumultuous period in Florence's history." "In his catalogue entries, Carl Brandon Strehlke surveys the history and multifaceted significance of the Medici portraits and other paintings, drawings, coins, medals, books, and prints in the exhibition, offering a wealth of insights into these works and the Florentine men and women they portray." "This fully illustrated volume also features Elizabeth Cropper's "Pontormo and Bronzino in Philadelphia: A Double Portrait," which explores the rich cultural and artistic background of these artists' portraiture. An essay by Mark S. Tucker, Irma Passeri, Ken Sutherland, and Beth A. Price discusses findings from the recent conservation of Pontormo's portrait of Alessandro. A genealogy of the Medici family, a glossary, and a bibliography complete this publication."--BOOK JACKET

Pontormo : portrait of a halberdier by Elizabeth Cropper( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pontormo's Halberdier has long been controversial. How did scholars come to identify the sitter as Duke Cosimo de' Medici and why is this open to doubt? Who was Francesco Guardi? What was the siege of Florence, and could Pontormo have made this compelling portrait during that time of deprivation and political tumult? In a fascinating piece of historical detective work, Elizabeth Cropper investigates these questions and uncovers new evidence for interpretation. She also analyzes the portrait's relationship to other works by Pontormo, explores the importance for Pontormo of Donatello, Michelangelo, and Andrea del Sarto, and looks into Bronzino's connection with the portrait
