Treasures of heaven : saints, relics, and devotion in medieval Europe by Martina Bagnoli ( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 557 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 collection of John and Berthe Ford represents one of the most important private holdings of Indian and Himalayan art in the world. 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 catalogue is accompanied by two introductory essays: "Introduction: Desire and Devotion," by Pratapaditya Pal, and "Artistic Production, Religious Practice: Material and Ideological Constraints," by Hiram Woodward."--BOOK JACKET

William and Henry Walters : the reticent collectors by William R Johnston ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Their personal collection differs from those of other, more familiar collectors, such as J. P. Morgan and Henry Clay Frick, in that Henry Walters intended from the very first that the collection form a museum to serve the public. When the museum first opened its doors in 1934, Johnston relates, many visitors were surprised by the collection's size and by its comprehensive representation of the history of art from the third millennium B. C. to the early twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET

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 3 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
