Raphael : from Urbino to Rome by Hugo Chapman( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within little more than a decade Raffaello di Giovanni Santi (1483-1520) transformed himself from a master of provincial church decoration to one of the greatest painters who ever lived. This illustrated catalogue tells the story of his artistic journey from Urbino, where he was born, to the papal court in Rome, via the Central Italian cities of Citta di Castello, Perugia, Siena and Florence." "This book follows this dramatic evolution from his origins in Urbino and the early influences of his father, Giovanni Santi, and the famous Umbrian master Pietro Perugino. It explores his earliest works in Umbria and his studies in Florence under the influence of Leonardo and Michelangelo, concluding by investigating how and why Raphael's art flourished and changed so dramatically under the enlightened patronage of Pope Julius II in Rome."--Jacket
Michelangelo drawings : closer to the master by Hugo Chapman( Book )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most creative and influential artists in the history of art, Michelangelo (1475-1564) was a prolific sculptor, painter, architect, and draftsman whose drawing practice was essential to his work in all media. This important and beautiful book focuses on more than ninety Michelangelo drawings executed in red and black chalk and pen and ink. In the accompanying text, distinguished art historian Hugo Chapman examines the remarkable array of works and discusses how the act of drawing figured prominently in the evolution of Michelangelo's career. An introductory chapter discusses Michelangelo's contemporary fame, his training and choice of techniques, and the role of drawing in the genesis of his paintings, sculptures, and architecture. The author also describes the artist's frugal use of paper, explaining how he often recycled letters and drawings (working on both the front and back of the sheet) throughout his career. Organized chronologically, the book looks at Michelangelo's early development in Florence and Rome, his accomplishments as papal artist for the Sistine Chapel ceiling with its preparatory studies, and his drawings for the tomb of Julius II, the Medici tombs, the Laurentian library, and the Last judgement. The fascinating history of the fate of Michelangelo's drawings after his death is also explored in detail. From pen studies made when Michelangelo was in his early twenties to the visionary Crucifixion scenes carried out shortly before his death six decades later, this essential book testifies to the fundamental importance of drawing in the work of this great Renaissance master.--Book jacket
Fra Angelico to Leonardo : Italian Renaissance drawings by Hugo Chapman( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than any other medium, drawings give a direct insight into how Italian Renaissance artists worked. This book charts the development of drawing in Italy from 1400, just prior to the emergence in Florence of the classically inspired naturalism of the Renaissance, to around 1510 when Michelangelo, Rapahel and Titian were on the verge of taking the innovations of earlier masters, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Pollaiuolo, in a new direction. It brings together just over a hundred of the most remarkable drawings from the collections of the Uffizi in Florence and the British Museum in London, most of which have never been seen together before. It features nearly fifty of the greatest artists, including Filippo and Filippino Lippi, Jacopo and Gentile Bellini, Botticelli, Mantegna, Verrocchio and Carpaccio." "The book highlights the vital part drawing played in artistic teaching and shows how artists studied the human body, often using life models, and the natural world. It also explores aspects of regional difference, the development of new drawing techniques with unprecedented expressive qualities, and classes of graphic work, from preparatory drawings to finished presentation pieces made to impress patrons." "The extended introduction focuses on how and why artists drew. An emphasis on the pivotal role of Leonardo demonstrates how the spontaneity of drawings brings us a closer understanding of his imagination. This is followed by a catalogue of drawings where discussion of their significance is supported by illustrations of related works, such as paintings. The results of new scientific investigation also reveal fresh insights into how the drawings were made."--Jacket

Correggio and Parmigianino : master draughtsmen of the Renaissance by Hugo Chapman( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Correggio (c.1489-1534) and Parmigianino (1503-40), both of whom worked extensively in the city of Parma in northern Italy have long been recognized as two of the most outstanding and gifted draughtsmen of the sixteenth century. As a youth, Parmigianino almost certainly worked under Correggio, and his early style was modelled on that of the older painter. This selection of more than 130 drawings from English and American collections illustrates their very different artistic personalities and working methods."--Jacket
Renaissance Siena : art for a city by Luke Syson( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Renaissance in Siena was deliberately shaped and sustained to provide an artistic language for an ambitious and proudly independent city, and was fueled by the patronage of powerful institutions and wealthy families during a period of fascinating power shifts." "Artists such as Francesco di Giorgio, Matteo di Giovanni, Neroccio de' Landi and Domenico Beccafumi drew on the famed elegant and decorative legacy established by Sienese artists Duccio, Simone Martini and the Lorenzetti Brothers a century and a half earlier. This new generation used a consciously reverential style to depict distinctively Sienese subjects and icons. At the same time, these artists embraced the naturalistic trends introduced by outside artists - such as Signorelli, Pintoricchio and Raphael - working on local civic projects." "This illustrated account brings together paintings, sculpture, ceramics and works on paper, and showcases one of the most distinct and beautiful schools of Italian art."--Jacket
