The Renaissance portrait : from Donatello to Bellini by Bode-Museum( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Renaissance Portrait, ' which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Bode-Museum, Berlin, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, provides new research and insight into the early history of portraiture in Italy, examining in detail how its major art centers--Florence, the priestly courts, and Venice--saw the rapid development of portraiture as closely linked to Renaissance society and politics, ideas of the individual, and concepts of beauty. Essays by leading scholars provide a thorough introduction to Renaissance portraiture, while individual catalogue entries illustrate and extensively discuss more than 160 magnificent examples of painting, drawing, manuscript illumination, sculpture, and medallic portraiture by such artists as Donatello, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Ghirlandaio, Pisanello, Mantegna, Antonello da Messina, and Giovanni Bellini."--Inside cover
Botticelli reimagined by Sandro Botticelli( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is one of the greatest artists of all time. Renowned for the iconic Birth of Venus and Primavera, his work has become part of our collective visual memory, influencing product development, fashion design and artists as diverse as Andy Warhol, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, René Magritte and Jeff Koons. But Botticelli's fame today was by no means a foregone conclusion. Quickly forgotten after his death, he was only rediscovered as an artist in the nineteenth century -- and much of what we know of his work has been pieced together from fragmentary evidence; only three of his works are signed or documented. Since then, ''Botticelli'' has been interpreted in many different ways, and has led to many questions. How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? Why are his works considered timeless? What is it that makes him so ''European'' that his Venus appears on the 10 cent coin? What we can say -- safely -- is that Botticelli, more than any other Old Master, inspired and continues to inspire modern and contemporary art." -- Publisher's description

9 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is celebrated as one of the most important painters of the Italian Renaissance. His paintings have been endlessly reproduced and interpreted. His motifs - widely borrowed and adapted - have gone out into the world, often at a considerable remove from the originals. Indeed, they can take us so far away from the actual paintings by Botticelli that the artist's name has come to stand for fashion and lifestyle, with no mention at all of his work. Products are named after him, displays of popular culture follow patterns established by him, and individual figures, chief among them his iconic Venus, have become part of the collective visual memory. Botticelli's fame today was by no means a foregone conclusion. Quickly forgotten after his death, he was only rediscovered in the nineteenth century. The English Pre-Raphaelites and their admiration for Botticelli's work were instrumental in ushering in an extraordinary renaissance that went on to captivate the imagination of a growing circle of artists and, eventually, to enchant the public at large. Since then, Botticelli's work has been interpreted in many different ways. Yet it continues to raise a multitude of questions. How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? Why are his works considered timeless? What is it that makes him so 'European' that his Venus appears on the obverse of a 10 cent euro coin? What we can safely say is that Botticelli, more than almost any other Old Master, inspired and continues to inspire modern and contemporary art. 00Exhibition: Berliner Gemäldegalerie, Berlin, Germany (24.09.2015-25.01.2016) / Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK (05.03-03.07.2016)

Botticelli, Grey( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Berlin Gemäldegalerie invited American artist Michael Joaquin Grey to choose one of the well-known Renaissance portraits in the museum's collection and produce a contemporary artistic reaction to the work. Grey chose Sandro Botticelli's painting "Simonetta Vespucci" (ca. 1475). The portrait is the basis for the computer generated work "Between Simonetta", which slowly but continuously alters the portrait by means of an algorithmic program, calculating ever-new combinations. Questions arising from this work - of likeness and ideal, of authenticity, temporality and the transformation of the image - lie at the centre of the catalogue. The artist at once thematizes the paradigms of human perception and explores the genesis of the face as a constructive, self-reflexive process.0Exhibition: Gemäldegalerie der Staatlichen Museen, Berlin (3.9.2011-18.8.2012)

Inventing faces : rhetorics of portraiture between renaissance and modernism by Staatliche Museen (Berlin)( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The portrait is defined by the postulate of similarity. The interpretation of a likeness, however, does not stop with the identification of depicted persons. In this book, acclaimed authors approach the portrait genre from visual- and literary-studies perspectives, which led them on an impressive journey through time from the Middle Ages to the present and into the future. The portrait is explored as a complex result of the triad of model, artist, and recipient. From this perspective, the wordlessness of visual depictions proves erroneous, as portraits develop their own forms of expression and codes, which aim at dialog with the viewer. The face is thus not understood as a given feature of nature, but as a symbol or concept. Because looking at, interpreting, and reading faces is intrinsically connected with the search for human identity
