The power of images : studies in the history and theory of response by David Freedberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was ground-breaking for its time because of Freedberg's insistence on a new? approach to the study of images that focused on writing biographies of particular images which highlighted the historical and locally constructed responses, and what those responses could tell us about the psychology of the human response to images generally, rather than the more "traditional" art-historical aesthetic analysis approach. "Power of Images" is organized thematically with topics such as versimiltude, iconoclasm, and desire played out in front of the eyes of particular representative images. One of best aspects of this book is how clearly Freedberg takes seriously the notion of "presence" in images. The biggest limitation of this book is that it is almost completely bereft of information on non-pre-Enlightenment-European-Christian images. Rather than recusing himself from treating say Thai amulets, Freedberg overextends his conclusions in an unfortunately totalizing metanarrative. To be specific, I disagree with his brief rejoinder aimed at Stanley Tambiah's "Buddhist Saints of the Forest and the Cult of Amulets," and generally, I think many of Freedberg's conclusions would map poorly onto Tibetan or Japanese sacred statuary. In conclusion, I would still highly recommend this as a first-book for someone who wants to either learn about how to begin thinking about (religious) imagery and our responses to it, or someone who is looking for a wealth of short biographies and references to information on some of the most famous European Christian images

Florentine painting and its social background; the bourgeois republic before Cosimo de' Medici's advent to power: XIV and early XV centuries by Frederick Antal( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: The whole work is readable, learned and brilliantly conceived; on no future excursions to the Spanish Chapel and Santa Croce shall we ever see exactly what we saw before.Antal's book is one of the first attempts to trace the origins of an extended period of art in contemporary social structure... it poses interesting problems, introduces hitherto neglected facts, and illuminates in many ways the style and the content of Florentine painting...Florentine Painting and Its Social Background raises new and important problems in the interpretation of Florentine painting, and the broad correlations which it proposes will extend its influence to the several fields of late mediaeval and Renaissance history
