The Sculpted Object 1400-1700 features twelve essay's which consider a variety of the roles played by sculpture during the Renaissance period and into that of the Baroque. Based on the papers given at the 1995 Association of Art Historians' conference session of the same name, the collection investigates how sculpture was employed by artists of the time, both as an expressive medium in its own right and in relation to other artistic media. Through examination of a broad range of artistic objects, the contributors evoke the varied nature and utilization of sculpture in the period. Their diverse approaches incorporate analysis and interpretation of individual art works, and the assessment of contracts, letters and accounts.

Editorial Reviews

A dozen essays, 11 of them revised from the 1995 Association of Historians conference, consider a variety of roles played by sculpture during the Renaissance and into the Baroque period. They explore works of widely contrasting scale and meaning, including two-dimensional renderings of sculpted imagery in drawing and painting, the decoration of medals and bells, small table-top objects, prestigious public monuments, and sculpture's complex interrelationships with painting and architecture. Very well illustrated in black and white. Distributed in the US by Ashgate. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
