Overview

Celebrated Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (1508–1580) devoted much of his career to the city of Venice. Famous for public buildings he had designed in his native Vicenza and country villas he had built for wealthy patricians there, he arrived in Venice in the mid- 1550s confident of establishing a successful new practice. Yet Palladio’s Venetian career never matched his lofty expectations. Failing to achieve the position of state architect or to earn the kinds of commissions to which he was accustomed, he found himself working in a category new to his practice: ecclesiastical architecture. It was his stunning churches, however, including San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore, that established Palladio’s lasting renown.
In this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book, Tracy E. Cooper organizes Palladio’s work in Venice according to different types of patrons. She discusses his major monuments as well as less well-known work for charitable foundations, convents, triumphal processions, and the rebuilding of the Ducal Palace. She tells the compelling story of an established architect breaking into a new market and of a Renaissance city in the midst of sweeping change.

Editorial Reviews

Annali di Architettura - James S. Ackerman
“. . . adds revealing documentation and fresh interpretations . . . is original and persuasive . . . The book is handsomely produced and lavishly illustrated . . . should . . . be a model for future studies in the field.” — James S. Ackerman, Annali di Architettura
Library Journal
Perhaps no other architect had as great an impact on Western architecture and its underlying thought as Andrea Palladio (1508-80). His publications were highly influential, and his self-promotional Four Books of Architecture (1570) was translated into English in 1738. Palladio's reinterpretation of classicism is perhaps the chief cause for its persistence, and, filtered through English Palladianism, the style in the United States is most evident in dozens of state capitols. This book focuses on his work in Venice, where two churches he designed, San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore, remain his greatest achievements. Starting with a chapter on the architect's relation to the Venetian book industry, Cooper (Temple Univ.) divides the buildings into "Patriarchs," "Religious Orders," "The Venetian State," and "Charitable Institutions." At all points, descriptions of buildings are clear and detailed, and accompanying plans, sections, and diagrams enhance the reader's understanding of the designs. Unparalleled among titles on Palladio for its depth, quality of prose, and richness of illustrations, this book demonstrates why Palladio was addressed as "Architect of the Most Illustrious Dominion of the Venetians." For overall breadth, Manfred Wundram's Andrea Palladio, 1508-1580: Architect Between the Renaissance and the Baroque and Bruce Boucher's Andrea Palladio: The Architect in His Time still prevail. Nevertheless, larger collections with titles on Venetian architecture should acquire this.-Paul Glassman, Hofstra Univ. Lib., Hempstead, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
