9780521811873: Art and Patronage in the Medieval Mediterranean: Merchant Culture in the Region of Amalfi

An important trade center in the medieval Mediterranean, Amalfi and its surrounding regions sustained impressive art production and patronage from the eleventh through thirteenth centuries. With the rise of the Angevin kingdom, however, a demise of Amalfi's eclectic art tradition took place and, by the fourteenth century, its painting and sculpture reflected compromises between local and Neapolitan styles, demonstrating the erosion of its autonomy.

Book Description:

An important trade center in the Medieval Mediterranean, Amalfi and the surrounding region of southern Italy sustained strong art production and patronage from the eleventh through thirteenth centuries. Merchant patrons realized a wide variety of religious and residential complexes that were evocative of Byzantine, Islamic, Western, and local traditions. With the rise of the Angevin kingdom, a demise of this eclectic art tradition took place and by the fourteenth century, Amalfitan painting and sculpture reflects compromises between local and Neapolitan styles, demonstrating the erosion of its autonomy.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An important trade centre in the Medieval Mediterranean, Amalfi and the surrounding region of southern Italy sustained strong art production and patronage from the eleventh through to the thirteenth centuries. Merchant patrons realised a wide variety of religious and residential complexes that were evocative of Byzantine, Islamic, Western, and local traditions. With the rise of the Angevin kingdom, a demise of this eclectic art tradition took place and by the fourteenth century, Amalfitan painting and sculpture reflected compromises between local and Neapolitan styles, demonstrating the erosion of its autonomy. Originally published in 2004, this book evaluates the Amalfitan art production in terms of moral, economic, and social structures, including investment strategies, anxieties about wealth and salvation, and southern Italy s diverse religious communities. Historiographical analyses and postcolonial models of interpretation offer further insight into Amalfitan art and its ever-shifting relationship to the visual cultures of sovereign authorities in southern Italy.
