Rembrandt by Roberta D'Adda( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art in the Making: Rembrandt was first published in 1988. Publication of this new edition marks the 400th anniversary of the artist's birth in 1606. The book takes account of significant developments in Rembrandt scholarship over the last 20 years, and addresses problems of attribution that were hardly touched on in the original edition. All the works originally catalogued are included here, although some have been reassessed, and new entries have been added for paintings once attributed to Rembrandt but now considered to be by other hands. What remains the same is the scrupulous examination of every work that forms the basis for the descriptions of technique and arguments for attribution." "Introductory essays cover the artist's studio and working methods, the training of painters in seventeenth-century Holland, and Rembrandt's materials and technique. The essays are followed by catalogue entries on 21 paintings firmly attributed to Rembrandt, and six now assigned to followers. A comprehensive bibliography provides a rich source of information about the practice of oil painting, not only for Rembrandt but for seventeenth-century Dutch painting in general. Tables conveniently summarise the results of analysis of the ground layers and paint medium of the National Gallery's Rembrandts."--BOOK JACKET
Underdrawings in Renaissance paintings by London. National Gallery( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preliminary drawings beneath the surface layers of a painting can often be made visible by a technique called infra-red reflectography. The fascinating revelations of such underdrawings are always a source of important material for art history, leading to deductions about attribution, style, changes in composition, and workshop practices. This accessible book presents the results of pioneering research on the underdrawings of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century paintings by conservation, scientific, and curatorial staff at the National Gallery in London

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les oeuvres de 1865 à 1883 attestent que Renoir fut l'un des paysagistes les plus audacieux et originaux de son époque. Jeune, il apprit le métier au contact de Monet et Sisley. Vers 1870, il élabora un style paysagiste très personnel s'orientant vers une liberté picturale inégalable. L'exposition est centrée sur le caractère révolutionnaire de ses expérimentations qui ont influencé l'art moderne

The sixteenth century Italian paintings by Nicholas Penny( Book )

in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly anticipated catalogue of sixteenth-century paintings from the distinguished collection of the National Gallery in London encompasses artists who were active in Bergamo, Brescia, and Cremona, cities characterized as much by the artistic interaction between them as by the influence of Venice. The artists include such well-known names as Lorenzo Lotto, Moretto, and Moroni, along with less familiar ones such as Bartolomeo Veneto and Callisto Piazza. For each of the paintings, distinguished scholar and curator Nicholas Penny provides information about technique and materials, conservation and condition, and subject and iconography. An account of the painting's original patronage is followed by a discussion of changing tastes, interpretation, and how the picture was esteemed (or neglected) over the centuries. One third of the paintings catalogued here are portraits, and entries include fascinating sections on contemporary dress, furnishings, and accessories. An appendix provides an illuminating account of some of the great collectors and collections of the past
Titian : essays by Charles Hope( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tiziano Vecellio, known in England as Titian, is one of the undisputed masters of Western art." "Written by some of the world's most renowned Titian scholars, this beautiful and generously illustrated book accompanies the first monographic exhibition in Britain devoted to the work of this extraordinary artist. The exhibition includes over forty paintings from every stage of Titian's long career, including masterpieces such as the group of paintings commissioned for the studiolo of Alfonso d'Este, shown together for the first time since they first hung in the Duke's place in Ferrara." "The catalogue to the exhibition is preceded by four authoritative essays investigating different aspects of Titian's work: Titian's life and times, by Charles Hope; his skill as a painter of portraits, by Jennifer Fletcher; his painting technique, by Jill Dunkerton; and an examination of Titian replicas and variants, by Miguel Falomir. These provide the background for a detailed discussion of the works in the exhibition. Short essays by David Jaffe introduce the main themes. The wide scope of the book and its lavish illustrations make this the most informative and accessible introduction to Titian for many years."--BOOK JACKET

Goya : the portraits by Francisco Goya( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was one of the greatest portraitists of his time. The first large-scale book devoted to the topic, this handsome volume features portraits that shed light on Goya and his subjects, as well as on the politically turbulent and culturally dynamic era in which they lived. Whether portraying royalty, philosophers, military men, or friends, these works are memorable both for the insight they provide into the relationship between artist and sitter, and for their penetrating psychological depth. Xavier Bray traces Goya's career from his beginnings at the Madrid court of Charles III to his final years in Bordeaux, played out against the backdrop of war with France and the social, political, and cultural shift of the Enlightenment. More than 60 remarkable portraits, including drawings and miniatures, reveal the full range of Goya's technical and stylistic achievements, while also depicting sitters with a previously unparalleled humanity. His break with traditional, late-18th-century conventions allowed him to achieve a new modernity in portraiture that paved the way for artists such as Matisse and Picasso
Seduced by art : photography past and present by Hope Kingsley( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paintings and early and contemporary photographs are presented together according to traditional genres such as portraiture, still life and landscape. The large central room of the show will contrast beautiful and provocative religious imagery by 19th-century photographer Julia Margaret Cameron and late 20th-century artist Helen Chadwick, with spectacular battlefield tableaux by Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet from 1821 and Luc Delahaye’s work of 2001. The theme of portraiture includes Tina Barney’s astute social portraits; Martin Parr’s acerbic work is displayed alongside Thomas Gainsborough’s Mr and Mrs Andrews (about 1750), while photographs by Craigie Horsfield and the Victorian artist David Wilkie Wynfield show the Baroque influence of Anthony van Dyck. Painted and photographed nudes will prompt us to reconsider the past and present reception of controversial works by early photographers such as Oscar Gustav Rejlander and contemporary practitioners like Richard Learoyd. A room of landscapes will feature works by the early French photographer Gustave Le Gray and contemporary artists such as Jem Southam and Richard Billingham, capped by a huge eight-part photogravure by Tacita Dean."--Site web de l'éditeur
