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.

Описание: Since it was first produced in the mid-1800s, Venetian glass has been popular for its fanciful shapes, remarkable clarity, sumptuous colours and unusual
patterns. Its artists were virtuosi, and the works themselves, among which are goblets, vases, decanters and chandeliers, are extraordinary for their beauty and technical perfection.
Incorporating 100 colour photographs of some of the finest pieces ever created, this is a survey of Venetian glass of the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
The author also
describes the political battles, intrigues and financial entanglements that surrounded their production, including the near-imprisonment of glass artisans on the tiny island of Murano. This
forced seclusion ensured that Venetian glassmaking techniques remain closely guarded, even to this day.
