9780198174172: Alessandro Vittoria and the Portrait Bust in Renaissance Venice: Remodelling Antiquity (Clarendon Studies in the History of Art)

Alessandro Vittoria's portrait busts are unique in Italian art for their quality and quantity. No other Renaissance sculptor devoted himself so exclusively to portraiture. This is the first book on Vittoria, in English, to analyze the busts and explain their larger meaning in terms of the fundamental Renaissance preoccupation with reviving activity.

Review:


"Sixteenth-century Venetian sculpture has in recent years been gathering an impressive bibliography to which Martin's book adds an important chapter....Martin demonstrates a confident command of Vittoria's basic formula as well as his idiosyncratic mannerisms. Undergraduates through faculty."--Choice
