Renaissance rivals : Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian by Rona Goffen( Book )
20 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Quoting from poems, letters, treatises, contracts, and other contemporary writings, the author demonstrates the extent to which artists, as well as their patrons and colleagues, characteristically thought about art in the context of rivalry. Renaissance patrons often stipulated in contracts with artists that their commissions be more beautiful than works made for other patrons. The artists themselves competed for commissions. Goffen brings into sharp focus the immediacy, intensity, and complexity of artistic rivalry among the Renaissance masters, recovering for us the emotional and professional circumstances that brought about their magnificent creations."--BOOK JACKET
Titian's women by Rona Goffen( Book )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richly illustrated with paintings by Titian, this book examines the artist's enduring fascination with the theme of the beautiful woman. Well-known Renaissance scholar Rona Goffen offers a new interpretation of Titian's secular paintings of women, setting them in the context of life in sixteenth-century Venice. Without denying the erotic appeal of Titian's women, Goffen argues that this narrow view diminishes both the artist's achievement and an appreciation of his art and empathy for women. To characterize Titian's paintings of women as pornographic, as many have, is to confuse the modern response with the historical realities of Venetian Renaissance culture, including beliefs about sex and sexuality

Titian's "Venus of Urbino" ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A quintessential work of the High Renaissance in Venice, Titian's Venus of Urbino also represents one of the major themes of Western art: the female nude. But how did Titian intend this work to be received? Is she Venus, as the popular title - a modern invention - implies, or is she merely a courtesan? This book tackles this and other questions in six essays by European and American art historians. Examining the work within the context of Renaissance art theory, as well as the psychology and society of sixteenth-century Italy, and even in relation to Manet's nineteenth-century "translation" of the work, their observations begin and end with the painting itself and with appreciation of Titian's great achievement in creating this archetypal image of feminine beauty
