Giorgione's Tempest: Interpreting the Hidden Subject
Salvatore Settis
0226748944
June 1994
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Tempest is Giorgione's most enigmatic painting. It is a depiction of Giorgione's own family, of the "family of man" tale from Boccaccio, or of the myth of Apollo's birth? In this remarkable study, Salvatore Settis uses the mystery of the painting to shed light on the relationship between artist, patron, work, and critic. The result is a brilliant piece of detective work in the history and sociology of culture that stresses the function of Giorgione's art for the emerging, classically educated connoisseur elite of sixteenth-century Venice.

Book Description
The first three decades of the sixteenth century represent, visually and intellectually, the most exciting phase of the Renaissance in Venice—when Giorgione and the young Titian, together with Sebastiano del Piombo, Palma Vecchio, and others, were working alongside the older master Giovanni Bellini. This beautiful book presents an innovative survey of sixty Venetian Renaissance paintings of the caliber of Bellini and Titian’s Feast of the Gods in Washington and Giorgione’s Laura and Three Philosophers in Vienna.

Giorgione: The Wonders of Art
Sylvia Ferino-Pagden
8884918677
September 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This extraordinary exhibition catalogue explores the rare works of one of the most enigmatic painters of the Renaissance, Zorzi da Castelfranco-universally known as Giorgione (Castelfranco Veneto, 1478-Venezia, 1510)-examining 15 out of an oeuvre of his 25 attributed paintings.
Fellow student of Titian under Giovanni Bellini in Venice, almost nothing is known of Giorgione's life except that he worked in Venice, undertook various important commissions in oil and fresco, and died of the plague in his early 30s. A major innovator, he is acclaimed as the father of modern Venetian painting of the 16th century. In his revolutionary brushwork he skilfully combined Leonardo's sfumato with the colours and the thin layers of paint favoured by the Old Flemish masters to give a new dimension to light and colour.

Giorgione
Terisio Pignatti
0847822028


·
 
From Library Journal
Pignatti, author of a celebrated 1969 monograph on Giorgione, works with the most up-to-date scholarship from the monograph by Jaynie Anderson (Giorgione: Painter of Poetic Brevity, Abbeville, 1997) to provide a fine overview of the Venetian Renaissance artist. Pignatti's book is a more traditional monograph, with one general essay on the artist and catalog entries on each work, while Anderson's book diverges into essays on different themes. Her essays on 16th-century Venetian patronage and Giorgione's women give a fresher, more original perspective on this artist, but the reproductions in Pignatti's volume are more sumptuous and textured. Attributions to Giorgione have stirred some controversy, and Pignatti puts forth his own choices. For the most part, he agrees with Anderson except for early, small landscapes,...


Tempest

From Publishers Weekly
An art historian's trip to Venice to study a landmark painting turns into an effort to solve a murder mystery in this intelligent but murky second novel by Spanish writer de Prada (his first to be published in English), which mixes elements of crime fiction with musings on the process of evaluating great art. Alejandro Ballesteros is the Spanish protagonist who arrives in Italy to study The Tempest, a painting by Renaissance artist Giorgione that represented an important breakthrough in the use of landscape. But Ballesteros's expectations for a quiet academic interlude are overturned when he witnesses the murder of art dealer Fabio Valenzin and is caught up in the subsequent investigation. The na‹ve art historian is fascinated by the intrigue at first, especially when it leads to a series of romantic and...


'England's Giorgione': Charles H. Shannon and Venetianism in late Victorian art : (Dissertation) [DOWNLOAD: PDF]

·
 

Book Description
Abstract This dissertation studies the paintings and lithographs of Charles Hazelwood Shannon within the context of British Venetianism. Shannon clearly derived many stylistic elements and figurative motifs from Venetian Renaissance art. By doing so, he was at once following a British tradition of Venetianism, and reformulating it for a modern era. The history of British Venetianism has not been a smooth or consistent one. The Venetian style of painting was closely associated with royalist concepts and aristocratic privileges in seventeenth-century Britain. By contrast, much of the Venetianist discourse of the eighteenth century can be characterized as anti-Venetianist. In eighteenth-century Britain, Venetian art is repeatedly conflated with Venetian society, and both are condemned for a perceived licentiousness....
