Описание: This handsome volume brings together an impressive array of scholars, who analyze an outstanding private collection of 175 Old Master drawings that date from the 16th through the 18th centuries. The collection vibrantly revealed here includes a wide variety of drawings - from sketches and figure drawings to copies after masters and preliminary studies for major compositions - and features the work of many important Italian artists, including Raphael, Andrea del Sarto, Baccio Bandinelli, Pontormo, Perino del Vaga, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Salvator Rosa, Guercino, and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, among many others. Each work is reproduced and accompanied by complete documentation: physical description, provenance, bibliography, and exhibition history, as well as background information on the subjects captured in the drawings. "Capturing the Sublime" opens up the beauty of these drawings to a broader public and provides important new attributions and scholarship.
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.
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: 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.

Описание: Though little known in the English-speaking world, Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723) was one of the most important and influential European baroque architects. The buildings that he designed for the emperor of Austria and his courtiers reveal an element of theatricality - an element that author Esther Gordon Dotson probes in this accessible and attractive volume. In his architectural designs, Fischer incorporated devices from ceremonial pageantry and scene design, controlled lighting effects, and a sense of dramatic progression in approaching and moving through a building. Dotson identifies these various elements in her close reading of Fischer's structures, and splendid new photographs, taken by Mark Richard Ashton, bring them to life on the printed page. The author also delves into Fischer's past and his writings to explain how his awareness of architectural history and his early employment by designers of street-festival pageants and his relationships with others involved in such staged productions impacted his architectural designs. Dotson guides readers in discovering the theatrical qualities in Fischer's buildings, illuminating their conceptual liveliness, variety, drama, and enduring beauty.
