Correggio
David Ekserdjian
0300072996
November 1997
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Correggio is unique in his blending of late Renaissance and Mannerist ideas. Much of the scant information about him is drawn from wills, letters, and other third-party documents and presents a challenge to anyone working on it. Using his doctoral thesis on Correggio's altarpieces as a base, Ekserdjian expands his analytical involvement with the artist's work and explores the influences on him by such icons as Mantegna, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael. The text consists of an introduction and 12 chapters in four parts focusing on the full range of the artist's work from his earliest paintings to the cupola of the Parma Cathedral and the mythology paintings. Engaging the scholarship of his predecessors, Ekserdjian documents the arguments that surround the artist's work. There are 299 illustrations throughout,...

Book Description
This is the history of one of the great battles of the world, written by a private soldier who was an eye-witness. The siege of Malta was a crucial moment in the long struggle between Islam and Christendom for domination of the Mediterranean, fought out by unequal forces on the small island which commands the sea-routes at the centre of that sea. The Knights of St John were a survival from the medieval world, the largest of the surviving crusading orders, and they had been driven out of their base on Rhodes in the eastern Mediterranean after a great onslaught by the Turks in 1522. Now, forty-three years later, the Turkish ruler, Suleyman the Magnificent, who had been the victor at Rhodes, was determined to finish them off. He sent out a huge armada, carrying the pick of his army, under two commanders. Against this...

Correggio's Frescoes in Parma Cathedral

Review
Smyth offers a fresh and valuable approach to Correggio's fresco cycle of the Assumption of the Virgin in the Duomo at Parma, which despite its fame and important place in the development of Renaissance illusionistic decoration has long been misunderstood. In her well-written, profusely illustrated, and rigorously documented study . . . Smyth undertakes a careful examination of both the style and content of the frescoes.

Book Description

Correggio's depiction of the Virgin's Assumption into heaven, painted in the cupola of the Duomo of Parma, is widely viewed as one of the most inventive and influential fresco cycles of the Renaissance. Even so, the very elements that make the work so powerful--its lively iconography and its illusionism--have long been decried by critics for their...
