Overview

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.Unlike previous surveys of the period, this book refrains from dividing up the artists represented and instead explores the interrelationships between them. Through a series of thematic sections, the authors trace the rise of secular subjects—pastoral landscapes, female nudes, and romantic portraits—and the transformation of religious ones as well as innovations in style and technique. Cutting across genres, the book also focuses on the overarching themes of music, love, and time.Featuring essays by leading scholars, detailed entries on some of the most renowned pictures of sixteenth-century Italy, and revealing technical information, Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, and the Renaissance of Venetian Painting is an essential volume to own.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna (showing through January 7, 2007) and examines the period of 1500-30 in Venetian art. Although plagues and political unrest beleaguered the city, Venice's trade still flourished and fostered artistic patronage. The painting of this period is examined thematically, and the authors including curators Brown and Sylvia Ferino-Pagden; department heads Jaynie Anderson (Sch. of Fine Arts, Univ. of Melbourne) and Deborah Howard (history of art, Univ. of Cambridge); and professors Peter Humfrey (art history, Univ. of St. Andrews) and Mauro Lucco (Universit degli Studi di Bologna) look at new pictorial trends such as the pastoral landscape, eroticism, the female nude, and the dramatic portrait. The technical points discussed are especially interesting. For example, many Venetian artists of this period did not produce preparatory drawings like their contemporaries in Florence; instead, they painted underdrawings directly on the canvas with a brush. Richly illustrated and well written, this book is recommended for all art collections. Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State Coll. Lib., MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
