Beyond Caravaggio by Letizia Treves( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Italian painter known as Caravaggio (1571-1610) claims a place among the most revolutionary figures in the history of art. His intense naturalism, almost brutal realism, and dramatic use of light had a wide impact on European painters, including Orazio Gentileschi, Valentin de Boulogne, and Gerrit van Honthorst. Each of Caravaggio's followers absorbed something different from his work, propagating his stylistic legacy across Europe. In this extensively illustrated catalogue, Letizia Treves introduces the international Caravaggesque movement and traces the distinct artistic personalities of its leading players. Even now, Caravaggio's name overshadows the other talented artists who adopted his approach to narrative painting: the use of theatrical lighting to illuminate a story encapsulated in a single, dramatic moment. Treves explains the innovative and unifying features of these painters' work and how, despite resistance to their style and subject matter, many outstanding Caravaggesque pictures found their way into important collections
Venice through Canaletto's eyes by David Bomford( Book )

"Through a spectacular group of masterpieces in the National Gallery Collection, which spans the artist's working life, and clusters of works relating to them, this book explores Canaletto's painting technique - the shorthand he developed for architectural detail and for figures, the way the skies and water are painted - and the larger question of his treatment of the topography of his native city."--Jacket

Murillo : the self-portraits by Xavier F Salomon( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful publication accompanies an exhibition that brings together the only two known self-portraits by Bartolome Esteban Murillo (1617-1682), one of the finest painters of the Spanish Golden Age. Painted almost twenty years apart, these two remarkable paintings are often overshadowed by Murillo's more famous religious paintings and genre scenes. This book investigates the two self-portraits side by side, highlighting similarities and differences. While the earlier portrait reflects Murillo's admiration of antiquity and imitation of classical models, the later one shows a confident, mature artist who was at that time the leading painter in Seville. In addition, the book discusses recent technical analysis, offering a better understanding of how these self-portraits were painted, and provides a rare opportunity to compare how one of the most celebrated and influential European painters chose to represent himself at different stages of his exceptional career.

Jusepe de Ribera : the drawings : catalogue raisonné by Jusepe de Ribera( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and Esperanto and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first complete catalogue raisonné of the drawings of Jusepe de Ribera (Jativa, Valencia, 1591-Naples, 1652). A follower of Caravaggio, he trained in Rome and subsequently became a painter to the viceregal court in Naples. Ribera's drawings played a central role in his art. This catalogue raisonné reveals his impressive technical skills, equally evident in his use of pen and ink, red chalk and wash, while emphasizing the remarkable range of the subjects he depicted. The main text by Gabriele Finaldi explores specific themes within Ribera's activity as a draughtsman, from his sources, signatures and the most prominent collectors of his drawings to his preparatory studies and the variety of his subject matter. This text is followed by entries on the 157 surviving drawings considered autograph, 5 sheets attributed to Ribera and 31 rejected attributions by the artist now in museums, institutions and private collections around the world. In conjuction with the publication of this catalogue raisonné, the Museo del Prado in Madrid and the Meadows Museum, SMU, in Dallas have co-organised two monographic exhibitions: Ribera: Master of Drawing and Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera. They include already-known drawings by the artist and other recently attributed sheets, in addition to paintings and prints, with the aim of illustrating the importance of drawing within Ribera's oeuvre and its independent status"--Page 4 of cover

El Greco by Greco( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: A much anticipated, wide-ranging survey of works by one of the world's greatest artists. El Greco (1541-1614), born Domenikos Theotokopoulos, was one of the most fascinating and distinctive artists of the sixteenth century. His works are immediately recognizable for their brilliant colors, elongated figures, and spiritual intensity. Initially trained in Crete, in around 1567 El Greco moved to Italy where he purportedly studied with Titian. A decade later he is documented in Toledo (south of Madrid), and he spent the rest of his long life in Spain. His paintings and writings offer a thoughtful, frequently inspired response to the varied environments in which he worked--and they reveal that he was deeply engaged with the religious and artistic thinking of his times. This lavishly illustrated book--the first comprehensive English-language publication on El Greco in many years--addresses the full range of the artist's work in painting and sculpture, from his Byzantine icons to his late altarpieces. It considers his personality from both a religious and intellectual point of view, and presents the artist's religious, mythological, genre, landscape, and portrait works, providing the historical context in which they were made. El Greco is the catalogue for an exhibition organized jointly by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the National Gallery, London. The exhibition opens in New York in October 2003, and moves to London in February 2004

Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664) by Francisco de Zurbarán( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in French and Dutch and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664) est un peintre emblématique de la période baroque espagnole. Né en Estrémadure, il apprend son métier à Séville, où il réside la majeure partie de sa vie. En réalisant d'importantes commandes pour divers ordres religieux, cet interprète de la Contre-Réforme développe une ouvre d'exception, où la représentation du sacré mêle la vision extatique des mystiques au réalisme d'une expérience essentiellement humaine. Après son passage à la cour madrilène, son style atteint sa pleine maturité dans les commandes monastiques de la fin des années 30. Par ailleurs, en réponse au goût contemporain, il exporte ses peintures, dont les fastueuses saintes martyres produites en série, vers les vice-royautés du Nouveau Monde. L'artiste finira ses jours à Madrid, où il livre une peinture dévotionnelle de format plus réduit, de nature plus douce et intimiste. Tenu pour l'un des plus grands peintres du Siècle d'or espagnol, Zurbarán se distingue par la rigueur de ses compositions, l'expression fervente du sentiment religieux, l'ordonnance dépouillée de ses natures mortes et l'attention portée aux objets du quotidien, dans leur émouvante simplicité. Zurbarán est à la fois un produit de son époque et un artiste singulier, dont la puissance du langage plastique exerce une fascination intacte.0Exhibition: Bozar, Bruxelles (29.1-25.5.2014)
