Poussin and nature : arcadian visions by Pierre Rosenberg( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
The French master Nicolas Poussin (15941665) painted some of the most influential landscapes in Western art, endowing them with a poetic quality that has been admired by artists as different as John Constable, J. M. W. Turner, and Paul Cezanne. This volume is the first in-depth examination of the landscapes in Poussins work. The artists pictorial imagination and intelligence are affirmed in 45 canvases, ranging from early Venetian-inspired pastorals to grandly structured scenes in which the artist meditated upon nature, its transformations, and its renewals. Nearly 50 of the artists drawings provide fascinating insight into Poussins thematic interests and working methods. Essays by internationally renowned scholars, including Museum curator Keith Christiansen, examine the visual, literary, and philosophical influences on Poussin as well as his relationships with his patrons and his place in the art-historical canon. Comparative paintings, drawings, and engravings by Poussin and others illuminate the essays, and a detailed catalogue of 113 of Poussins works explore questions of authorship, dating, interpretation, and execution, often righting earlier mistakes and raising new questions. This groundbreaking book gives the fullest possible representation of Poussin as a painter of landscapes, and provides a unique occasion to explore the personal side of this great artists creative achievement. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website
Giambattista Tiepolo, 1696-1770 by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo( Book )

From Filippo Lippi to Piero della Francesca : Fra Carnevale and the making of a Renaissance master by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 520 libraries worldwide
"In 1934 the Italian government lifted restrictions governing the fabled Barberini Collection in Rome, making it possible for two intriguing fifteenth-century paintings to be put on the international art market. Within just two years both had been sold - one to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the other to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Neither their authorship nor their subjects were certain, but their ambitious depiction of architecture no less than their discursive, anecdotal approach to narration made them unique among Early Renaissance paintings. Who was their author? What was their function? How to explain their mastery of perspective and their sophisticated architectural settings? Building on over a century of scholarship as well as completely new archival information, this catalogue proposes answers to all three questions. In doing so, it examines the art of Florence in the 1440s and the work of, among others, Fra Filippo Lippi, Domenico Veneziano, Luca della Robbia, and Michelozzo."--BOOK JACKET

The genius of Andrea Mantegna by Keith Christiansen( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
Few artists have managed to imprint their personality so indelibly on posterity as Andrea Mantegna (c. 1431-1506). Before he reached the age of twenty, Mantegna was already being praised for his "alto ingegno" (exalted genius), and he became the court artist for the Gonzaga family in Mantua before he was thirty. Yet, this book argues, Mantegna was not simply a great painter. Together with Donatello, he was the defining genius of the fifteenth century: the measure of what an artist could be. His highly original and deeply personal vision, the descriptive richness of his pictures and his biting, hypercritical but always exalted mind gave Mantegna's art an extraordinary edge and and earned him a preeminent place in the Renaissance
Piero Della Francesca : personal encounters by Keith Christiansen( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
This book tells the story of Italian Renaissance master Piero della Francesca (1411/13-1492) by focusing on four paintings he created over the span of his career. It also provides the first study of his small-scale devotional paintings, including the exquisite 'Saint Jerome and a Donor'. One of today's most prominent scholars narrates the painting's mysterious history and uncovers new insights gleaned during its recent study and restoration. The author explores the relationship between this painting and other works made by Piero for private devotion, including one of his last and most striking paintings, the magnificent 'Madonna di Senigallia'. New research describes the complex relationships between Piero and his patrons and other contemporaries. This book brims with revelatory details about Piero's work that will intrigue both casual readers and devoted fans of the artist, and will form a gateway to a larger analysis of Piero's overall body of work.0Exhibition: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA (13.1.-30.3.2014)
