Book Description
An instant success upon its publication in the mid-sixteenth century, Giorgio Vasari's Lives of the Artists remains one of the principal resources for study of the art and artists of the Italian Renaissance.

This single-volume edition of selections from Vasari's immense work profiles eight of the book's most noteworthy artists and includes an introduction, notes, and glossary; and woodcut portraits of each artist by Vasari himself.


The Panel Paintings of Masolino and Masaccio: The Role of Technique
Carl B. Strehlke (Editor)
8874390009
September 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The result of a pioneering technical examination, this fresh look at the painting techniques of Masolino and Massaccio sheds new light on the life, oeuvre, and working methods of two great masters of early Renaissance Italy. In addition to technical revelations, including examples of Masaccio's underdrawing and Masolino's innovative use of oil mediums, the study reveals a greater understanding of the nature of the collaboration of the two artists and the chronology of their works. All technical information has been correlated to art-historical concerns regarding early Renaissance art such as the role of the guilds; the nature of collaboration between artists and craftsmen such as carpenters and guilders; and the relationship between patron and artist, showing how a detailed technical study can answer questions that...


Masaccio's 'Trinity'
Rona Goffen (Editor)
0521467098
April 1998
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Masaccio's "Trinity" examines one of the most influential paintings of the Italian Renaissance. Renowned for the grandeur of its characterizations and for the perspectival illusion of its architectural setting, the fresco was famous from the time it was painted in the 1420s, and remembered despite its having been hidden from view for nearly two centuries. This volume considers the "Trinity" in its historical and spiritual contexts, and describes the significance of Masaccio's innovative depictions of time and space.

From Publishers Weekly
Magnificent, large, full-page color reproductions distinguish this important monograph on Florentine painter Masaccio (1401-1428), whose naturalistic style during the last seven years of his short life revolutionized Renaissance artists' use of perspective and light. Art historian Spike, who lives in Florence and serves as a guest curator in Europe and the U.S., boldly hypothesizes that the iconography of Masaccio's frescoes in the Brancacci Chapel of Florence--with their descending tiers of heaven, sky, sea and land--was based on the creation story in Genesis. In his engaging essay on Masaccio's life and work, Spike locates sources for the artist's naturalism in Donatello's sculpture and in the classical proportions of Brunelleschi's architecture. Rejecting the prevailing assumption that Filippino Lippi's...

Three Studies: Masolino and Masaccio, Caravaggio and His Forerunners, Carlo Braccesco
Roberto Longhi
1878818511
January 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Students of art history deep in the throes of research on Masolino, Masaccio, Carlo Braccesco, or Caravaggio's prototypes may see this book as a great discovery. Readers with more mundane or general interest in art history will find themselves puzzled by its obscurity. Longhi (1890-1970) is renowned throughout Italy as one of the greatest art historians of all time but never became popular elsewhere because of the difficulty of translating his colloquial prose. To Italian Renaissance scholars of his day, he was famous for a decades-long feud with art history legend Bernard Berenson as well as for his distinctive writing style. Typically, in these three essays, Longhi continuously corrects the alleged errors of his contemporaries in extensive and personally charged footnotes, which today read like so much gossip. To...
