Treasures of heaven : saints, relics, and devotion in medieval Europe by Martina Bagnoli( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing together an array of treasured objects from collections throughout Europe and the United States, this beautifully illustrated volume examines the medieval cult of relics- the physical remains of holy men and women, and things associated with them. Relics connected Christian faithful with sacred places and people who died as martyrs of their faith. Believed to contain the same power that had animated saints during their lifetime, relics bridged the gap between heaven and earth. To signal their sacred nature, medieval artists fashioned special containers for relics in precious materials and encrusted them with gems. Enshrined in alters of churches and used in the liturgy as well as in public rituals, relics functioned as objects of public and private devotion, carried home from pilgrimages to the Holy Land and sites throughout Europe or worn on the body as protective amulets enclosed in rings or pendants. In essays and catalogue entries, an international group of scholars traces the making of reliquaries from the earliest days of Christianity to the apogee of the practice in the sixteenth century, exploring how medieval artists invented new ways to express the power of sacred remains and the role that relics played in the development of the visual arts in both Eastern Christianity (Byzantium) and Western Christendom. This book also tracks the fate of relics and reliquaries in the wake of the Reformation, anti-clerical movements, and the French Revolution. This book sheds fascinating new light on some 140 extraordinary and rare reliquaries and related objects, including precious metalwork, paintings, sculptures, and illuminated manuscripts, from sources ranging from the Lateran Palace in Rome to European cathedral treasuries and small parish churches. -- from Book Jacket
The essence of line : French drawings from Ingres to Degas by Jay McKean Fisher( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rarely seen drawings and watercolors by some of the most influential French artists of the nineteenth century are the subject of this richly illustrated publication from The Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Museum. From revealing preparatory sketches to exquisite finished watercolors, more than 100 works by artists such as Eugene Delacroix, Honore Daumier, Paul Cezanne, and Edgar Degas illuminate the range of French art over the course of a century of innovation. The BMA and the Walters have combined holdings of more than 900 French drawings from the nineteenth century, one of the nation's strongest and richest collections of French art from this period. The publication also includes works from the Peabody Institute Art Collection of the Maryland State Archives." "The Essence of Line offers the first comprehensive discussion of the formation of these collections and their significance for the history of French art. The catalogue includes essays by Jay McKean Fisher, William R. Johnston, and Cheryl K. Snay that provide insights into the artistic, commercial, and social functions that drawings served for their creators and collectors, as well as how collecting patterns influenced the development of modernism. Conservator Kimberly Schenck bridges the worlds of the collector and of the artist by examining the production and the use of drawing materials in an epoch of radical changes in technique as well as style." "Published on the occasion of an exhibition jointly organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Museum, this book presents a panorama of sketches, watercolors, and presentation drawings, many of them little known outside a small circle of experts. It is correlated with an online database of more than 900 nineteenth-century French drawings in the holdings of these Baltimore museums."--BOOK JACKET

Certain objects have been widely exhibited; others have never been publicly shown. The exhibition and the accompanying publication bring together works from both India and the Himalayas, demonstrating the range and depth of the Ford collection, providing an extraordinary overview of 2,000 years of history; and illustrating enduring themes in the art of Southeast Asia with outstanding works of art."

The repeating image : multiples in French painting from David to Matisse by Eik Kahng( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Today, repetitive imagery dominates all forms of visual experience, from the realm of advertising to the spaces of contemporary art. In this innovative project, the authors show that the phenomenon of repetition - often considered merely incidental to the age of mechanical reproduction - was a pervasive attribute of early modern painting long before its embrace by twentieth-century high modernism." "In works by David, Ingres, Delaroche, Gerome, Corot, Millet, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, and Matisse, the reader can compare closely related versions of some of the most familiar imagery of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The authors demonstrate that by making multiples of closely related subject matter in their paintings and in other media, these artists challenged an aesthetic based on the notion of an inimitable, unique masterpiece." "Through beautiful illustrations and essays by leading scholars, this book shows how repetition in early modern painting took on a complex, multivalent significance and that the traditional medium of painting remained undiminished despite the nineteenth-century invention of photography and film."--Jacket
