Book Description
This ambitious collection treating the Italian Fascists’ appropriation of the past for political purposes focuses on the role of the visual in the aim of fusing the past and the modern world in Mussolini’s Italy.

Madonnas by Donatello and His Circle
Anna Jolly
0820435384
March 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The present study is concerned with sculptures of the Virgin and Child, produced in the circle of Donatello during the Early Renaissance. Madonna reliefs and statues in media such as terracotta or stucco were a routine and inexpensive part of Florentine workshop production. Detailed analysis of compositional and qualitative differences among the many surviving versions after the master's designs has helped to define the development of Donatello's involvement with this genre. The systematic compendium of Madonnas, those which are autograph, casts after Donatello's designs, bronze plaquettes, later replicas as well as related compositions by contemporary Florentine artists serves to illustrate the relationship between the master and his various followers with a concrete series of casestudies.

Donatello: Sculptor
John Wyndham, Sir Pope-Hennessy
1558596453


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this erudite, lavishly illustrated monograph, Italian Renaissance sculptor Donatello emerges as an innovator who was more radical in his artistic solutions and highly individual religious iconography than is generally assumed. Pope-Hennessy, a leading authority on Italian Renaissance art, surveys the full range of Donatello's accomplishments: his marble David in Florence, the strong humanistic expression of his reliefs and statues, works in gilt bronze and pigmented wood and the low marble relief technique ( stiacciato ) Donatello pioneered, achieving unprecedented effects of animation and expressiveness in almost mystical compositions. The restoration and cleaning of many of Donatello's major works in recent years is reflected in this volume's magnificent color photographs, which radiate the majesty and...


Earth and Fire: Italian Terracotta Sculpture from Donatello to Canova
Bruce Boucher

November 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
What drawing has been to painting, terra cotta (fired clay) has often been to Italian sculpture of the 400 years from the Renaissance through the neoclassical period. This superbly executed exhibition catalog for a current show mounted by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, deftly, coherently, and revealingly unfolds what was formerly only the narrowly appreciated and understood role of clay in the best years of the Italian sculptural tradition. Boucher (history of art, University Coll. London) cogently synthesizes a body of significant art historical material unjustly relegated to the byways of the discipline. Emerging from this collaborative effort is not only a more profound comprehension of the manner in which terra cotta has been employed in preparatory "sketches,"...
