Durer to Veronese
Jill Dunkerton
0300072201
Nov 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Focused on the marvelous collections of London's National Gallery and written by gallery staff, this is an accessible consideration of picture types (altarpieces, private devotions, palace decoration) and technique (painting on panel, painting on canvas, and preparatory drawings and studies) in the age of discovery. Using the collection for interpretive writing of high quality makes this more than just a catalog of pictures done at the same time and now in the same place. The authors provide detailed discussions of particular works and fit them into the artistic framework and understanding of the time, a time when art schools began to develop and when the world known to Europeans was expanding exponentially. A fine addition to both general and specialized art collections, this is highly recommended for all...


Veronese
Richard Cocke
1904449360
July 2005
Hardcover

Book Description
Veronese's paintings have enjoyed great popularity up to the />present day, with a reputation for exquisite technical skill />reflected in intricately detailed depictions of dress patterns and />the human body. But critics have long neglected the subtler />aspect of Veronese's work, a virtuosity as storyteller that inspired />many of his religious paintings with great narrative force. This />comprehensive study of Veronese examines every stage in />his career, from the first major fresco cycles at the church />of St Sebastiano in Venice and the decorations at the Villa />Maser through to his last work at the Doge's Palace, and highlights the wealth of motifs and techniques that were to be of formative importance to the Pre-Raphaelites. With more than 60 colour plates and detailed notes on all reproductions,...

Veronese: Gods, Heroes, and Allegories
Pierluigi De Vecchi
8884918685
November 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Paolo Caliari-better known as Veronese-is the "profane" painter par excellence. Veronese gave expression to a secular and progressive vision that brought him into direct collision with the Church hierarchy, prefiguring the collision of the academy and modern art. This catalog brings together a series of paintings by the 16th-century Italian artist emphasizing the spectacular in Veronese's work which in turn reveals multiple facets of Venetian life.
This sumptuous catalogue from the Musée du Luxembourg exhibition aims to underline the profane aspect of the artist, leaving aside religious works and altarpieces. His paintings of Biblical subjects are not actually excluded, for Veronese approached Holy Scripture and mythology in the same spirit, bringing out the emotional aspects of the Bible rather than the...

Projective Varieties with Unexpected Properties
Ciro Ciliberto
3110181606
Nov 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This volume contains refereed papers related to the lectures and talks given at a conference held in Siena (Italy) in June 2004. Also included are research papers that grew out of discussions among the participants and their collaborators. All the papers are research papers, but some of them also contain expository sections which aim to update the state of the art on the classical subject of special projective varieties and their applications and new trends like phylogenetic algebraic geometry. The topic of secant varieties and the classification of defective varieties is central and ubiquitous in this volume. Besides the intrinsic interest of the subject, it turns out that it is also relevant in other fields of mathematics like expressions of polynomials as sums of powers, polynomial interpolation, rank tensor...


Road to Rivoli: Napoleon's First Campaign
Martin Boycott-Brown
0304353051
June 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Boycott-Brown is an independent Napoleonic scholar who has rendered a detailed account (the first since 1957) of young Napoleon Bonaparte's Italian campaign of 1796-97. An often overlooked offensive that began in the mountains leading into the Piedmont-Sardinia kingdom, it constitutes one of Napoleon's most remarkable achievements. He took command of an underfed and dispirited army and turned it into a magnificent fighting force that overcame incredible hardships before crushing the Austrians at Rivoli. Boycott-Brown's exciting account is not always easy to read. The bewildering matrix of tiny Italian villages that played a part in Napoleon's slippery maneuvers may overwhelm the reader. Indeed, the novitiate to the Little General's campaigns may become as confused as his opponents did in the rugged ...


Painting in Sixteenth-Century Venice : Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto
David Rosand

September 28, 1997
Paperback
·
 
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...

Shrouded Chronicles of Jesus the Christ
Pete Veronese
0595091687
March 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description

Biblical scripture has delivered information to every generation since the beginning of time. Paradoxically most people have difficulty making sense of the stories found in these books and are at the mercy to accept or reject the revelation given by the clergy. The author has studied and researched biblical documents and came to a far different conclusion than what prevails in the traditional ecclesiastical realm.

The Shrouded Chronicles of Jesus Christ answers many questions about the Bible. It is about hidden truths found in biblical stories and the reasons they were hidden.
