Описание: Throughout his career - and particularly in the period from 1898 to 1913 - John Singer Sargent painted the spectacular architecture of everyday life in Venice, as he sat alongside the Grand Canal or in a gondola in the sleepy side canals. This book presents the luminous masterworks that Sargent completed during that fertile 15-year period.
For the past 65 years, the National Galleries of Scotland has displayed the acclaimed Bridgewater Collection, one of the world's most important groups of Old Master paintings still under private ownership. Consisting largely of French and Italian works, the collection includes Titian's "Diana and Actaeon" (recently purchased by the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery of London) and "Diana and Callisto," each an undeniable masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance.
This catalogue accompanies an unprecedented exhibition of 25 paintings and drawings from the National Galleries of Scotland. In addition to the works by Titian, the book features paintings and drawings by Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, Tintoretto, and Veronese. With special emphasis on the Titian masterpieces, the authors discuss the Bridgewater Collection and its long, proud history of bringing Old Master paintings to public view.

Описание: In this volume, a team of noted Italian art historians trace the evolution of Renaissance intarsia through a discussion of twelve of the most important intarsia cycles. These include the famous studiolo of Federico da Montefeltro in the ducal palace at Urbino; the sacristy of Santa Maria in Organo at Verona, which Vasari described as the most beautiful in all of Italy; and the choir of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo, the cartoons for which were prepared by Lorenzo Lotto. Drawing on the latest scholarship and, in some cases, newly discovered documentary evidence, the authors explain the historical context and iconography of these masterpieces, as well as their connections to the painting, sculpture, and architecture of the time. Their insightful essays are illustrated with some two hundred new color images, the result of an extensive photographic campaign carried out exclusively for this work.
Описание: The international art event La Biennale di Venezia is taking place for the fifty-fifth time from June 1 through November 24, 2013. For this occasion, Germany has not only switched pavilions with France, but is also showing artworks that focus on themes of intercultural and intellectual transference. Susanne Gaensheimer, director of Frankfurt’s MMK Museum fur Moderne Kunst, has curated a selection of work for Germany’s pavilion in the building of the French pavilion by Chinese conceptual artist and regime critic Ai Weiwei, the German-French filmmaker Romuald Karmakar, the South African photographer Santu Mofokeng, and the Indian photographer Dayanita Singh. With the selection of these artists, Gaensheimer is continuing her transnational curatorial approach from 2011 that presented Germany as playing an active role in a complex, global structure that benefits from international exchange.
Gaensheimer states: “The artists that I invited and their work represent various themes that result from the convergence of diverse ideologies and ways of life that have a large impact on us today. It was important to me that all of them succeed in expanding our perspectives to include the points of view of the ‘other’—even in ways that may be uncomfortable.”

The great Venetian sculptors of the High Renaissance, led by Tullio Lombardo (c. 1455-1532), explored a poetic and nostalgic approach to classical antiquity in their work. Their expression shares much with Mantegna, Bellini, Giorgione, and Titian in these painters' imaginative evocations of ancient history, mythology, philosophy, and poetry.
Featuring a range of Tullio's work, including his sensuous and dramatic double-portrait reliefs, this book introduces the romantic qualities and beautiful craftsmanship of the sculptor and his closest followers, including his brother Antonio Lombardo, Simone Bianco, Antonio Minello, and Giammaria Mosca. Essays examine Tullio's innovations and the Venetian cultural setting where he developed them in dialogue with the northern Italian masters of Renaissance painting. Twelve works, carefully selected from this milieu, exemplify the creative approach and influ-ence of Tullio and the Lombardo workshop.
