Father and son : Nicola and Giovanni Pisano by Max Seidel( Book )

28 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The father and son team of Nicola and Giovanni Pisano are among the most important sculptors of the thirteenth-century Italian Gothic, and their work - especially the ornately carved pulpits in Italy's Pisa and Siena Cathedrals - continues to inspire wonder and awe. Never before - nor since - have a father and son met on an artistic level in quite this way, and this two-volume set goes beyond a typical biography to explore this fascinating collaboration. Drawing on extensive new archival research, Max Seidel offers a broad examination of both artists' styles, paying particular attention to the emergence of Giovanni Pisano's practice under his father's guidance and the social and iconographic aspects of both artists' work. The Pisanos' sculptures in France and Rome are of paramount importance to the development of their styles and Seidel therefore treats them in considerable depth. The second volume comprises five hundred newly-published illustrations, making this a truly comprehensive overview of these two masters of European sculpture

Francesco Clemente : the tarots & self-portraits as the twelve apostles by Francesco Clemente( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francesco Clemente, 1952 in Neapel geboren, ist bekannt für sein ausgeprägtes Interesse an spirituellen Themen. Drei Jahre arbeitete er an seinem neuen Zyklus. Er setzte sich intensiv mit Tarot auseinander und studierte Kartensätze verschiedener Jahrhunderte, bevor er seine Serie begann. Die Bilder erzählen unzählige Details seiner eigenen Biografie. Seine Frau Alba, seine Kinder, Freunde und Verwandte sind an prominenten Stellen des Tarotkarten-Zyklus vertreten. Auch Francesco Clemente selbst begegnet dem Betrachter: als "Narr" - zu sehen auch auf dem Titelbild des Bandes - und als "Ass der Schwerter". Francesco Clemente reflektiert in den Tarotkarten nicht nur sein eigenes Leben. Er skizziert auch die Atmosphäre, die Menschen und die Aura der Städte, mit denen er eng verbunden ist: Madras in Indien, Taos in Mexiko, Neapel und vor allem New York sind prägende Orte seines Lebens. Überall entstanden einige der Tarotkarten. Verschlüsselte Symbole erschweren eine Deutung Wie in den meisten seiner Werke widmet er sich existenziellen Themen der Menschheit - Liebe, Tod, Vergänglichkeit. Doch die Aussagen, die er trifft, sind verschlüsselt. Francesco Clemente schöpft für seine Tarotkarten aus einem reichhaltigen Fundus an Symbolen verschiedenster Kulturen und Traditionen, die er willkürlich kombiniert. Eine allzu klare Deutung seiner Werke lehnt er bewusst ab. Auch technisch zeigen die Bilder, wie gerne der Künstler experimentiert und vermeintlich Unpassendes verknüpft. Die Tarotkarten realisierte er abwechselnd in Collage-Technik, mit Tinte, Tempera-, Pastell- oder Aquarellfarben auf Papier. Francesco Clemente als die zwölf Apostel Für die Ausstellung in den Uffizien hat der Künstler den Tarotkarten einen weiteren Zyklus hinzugefügt. Zwölf Bilder zeigen ihn selbst in Gestalt der zwölf Apostel. Den herausragenden Stellenwert von Francesco Clemente in der zeitgenössischen Kunst verd

Ambrogio Lorenzetti by Ambrogio Lorenzetti( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in Italian and Dutch and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"È dedicato ad Ambrogio Lorenzetti questo volume, edito in occasione dell'importante mostra ospitata nell'autunno 2017 a Siena. Ambrogio Lorenzetti, fratello minore di Pietro, è autore di celeberrimi affreschi tra i quali Le Allegorie del Buono e Cattivo Governo nel Palazzo Pubblico di Siena, considerate il suo capolavoro. Da decenni la produzione del maestro - la cui attività è documentata dal 1319 al 1348 - non veniva compiutamente analizzata nel suo insieme, e l'occasione dei recenti restauri di diverse sue opere - cicli ad affresco e tavole - ha offerto importante materia di riflessione, confluita nei saggi qui raccolti. Il volume offre quindi un contributo di grande rilevanza alla conoscenza di questo pittore, che si distingue non solo per la potenza delle sue composizioni, per i brillanti cromatismi e per la complessa simbologia delle sue opere mature, ma anche per l'originalità di certe invenzioni iconografiche, alcune delle quali talmente provocatorie da essere immediatamente modificate - e riemerse sotto le pitture solo a seguito di approfondite analisi." -- publisher's description
