9780415756167: Art and Magic in the Court of the Stuarts

Spanning from the inauguration of James I in 1603 to the execution of Charles I in 1649, the Stuart court saw the emergence of a full expression of Renaissance culture in Britain. Hart examines the influence of magic on Renaissance art and how in its role as an element of royal propaganda, art was used to represent the power of the monarch and reflect his apparent command over the hidden forces of nature. Court artists sought to represent magic as an expression of the Stuart Kings' divine right, and later of their policy of Absolutism, through masques, sermons, heraldry, gardens, architecture and processions. As such, magic of the kind enshrined in Neoplatonic philosophy and the court art which expressed its cosmology, played their part in the complex causes of the Civil War and the destruction of the Stuart image which followed in its wake.

About the Author:

Vaughan Hart is professor of architecture in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, University of Bath.

Review:

`As an architectural historian, Hart brings a unique and illuminating perspective to his study besides providing us with a valuable overview of the subject. Hart's excellent study provides us with n insightful vew of an aspect of seventeenth century cultural wars that helps us understand the ideologicalsignificance of court art as it was manifested in emblematics, techniques of artiical memory, mechanics, and perspective reconstituted by an occult aesthetic.' - Eugene Cunnar 16th Century Jrnl

`Excellent book ... Hart displays his knowledge effectively, and martials his arguments convincingly ... this book is essential reading for those who still persist in describing the architecture of Jones as Palladian, or fail to appreciate that architecture in Britain was once concerned with more than style or pragmatism.' - Robert Tavernor, Architectural Review

...mind-boggling... Midweek
