Book Description
The Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto (1518–94) is an ambiguous figure in the history of art. Critics and writers such as Vasari, Ruskin and Sartre all placed him in opposition to the established artistic practice of his time, noting that he had abandoned the values that typified the venerable Venetian Renaissance tradition, even being expelled as an apprentice from the workshop of Titian.This generously illustrated book offers a long-overdue re-evaluation of Tintoretto. Tom Nichols charts the artist's life and work in the context of Venetian art and the culture of the Cinquecento. He shows how the artist created a new manner of painting, which for all its originality and sophistication made its first appeal to the shared emotions of the widest-possible viewing audience. The book deals extensively with...

Review
“This excellent study should do much to bring before the public eye an artist whom Berenson has called `in many ways deeper, finer, and even more brilliant than Titian'.”–New York Times

Myths of Venice : The Figuration of a State (Bettie Allison Rand Lectures in Art History)

From Library Journal
Venice has inspired both Wills (St. Augustine) and Rosand (Painting in Sixteenth Century Venice) to write remarkably laudatory works on the artistic legacy generated by the Renaissance mythmakers and propagandists of that city. Both authors emphasize the importance Venetians placed on creating a historical identity that would set them apart from other Italians and other nations. Venice was unique in Italy for being a city created after the fall of the Roman Empire. The mythical date for the foundation of Venice, March 25, is also the date of the Annunciation and of Christ's crucifixion significant, as Venetians saw it, in giving a unique spiritual flavor to their city. Wills and Rosand look at the paintings, sculpture, and architecture in Venice with the aim of examining how these works illustrated and...

Choice, April 2001 -G. Knox
…every aspect of this important group of paintings is treated seriously and thoroughly, yet in a completely accessible way.

Book Description
Edited by Alte Pinakothek. Essays by Cornelia Syre, Bruno Heimberg, Veronika Poll-Frommel, and others. Alongside Titian and Veronese, Jacopo Tintoretto (1518-1594) is one of the most highly regarded 16th century Venetian painters, yet his Gonzaga Cycle, which belongs among the finest works of this era, has not been properly appreciated until now. Commissioned by Duke Guglielmo Gonzaga to paint a series of eight paintings for two still-existing rooms in the Palazzo Ducale in Mantova, Tintoretto completed the first part in 1579 and the second half in 1580. This publication features an extensive analysis of the finished...

Book Description
Painting in Sixteenth-Century Venice, here published in a revised and updated edition, explores the visual tradition of one of the most important centres of the Italian Renaissance through a study of three masters - Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto. These painters dominated and shaped the traditions of Venetian painting in the High and Late Renaissance. Establishing the conditions of painting in Renaissance Venice, including the social, economic and political situation of arts and artists and the aesthetic values that distinguish Venetian painting from that of Central Italy, David Rosand also explores the formal principles and technical procedures that determined the uniqueness of painting in Venice, above all the development of oil painting on canvas. He also analyses individual images, altarpieces and mural paintings...

Book Description
Great Discoveries Audio Tour of the Pitti Palace will provide you with the most enjoyable and informative way to visit the grandest of all the Italian Renaissance palaces. It may not bear the Medici name, but members of Florences first family were owners of this monolithic palace for many centuries. The palace remained the seat of the Medici court and the families successors, the Lorraines, the Bourbans, the Bounaparts and the Savoys, for some three centuries until 1859 when the Grand Duchy of Florence was annexed to the unified Kingdom of Italy. Today its countless rambling rooms house several museums, the most important of which is the Palatine Gallery, whose beautiful salons are filled from floor to ceiling with paintings from the Medici private collection. It is one of the largest and most important museums in the...
