Combining research and ideas from the histories of art, medicine, and natural philosophy, this book demonstrates the significance of "lifelikeness" in Renaissance art and considers the implications of claims that a work of art is "a living thing." Critical language describing such works became codified. This period also witnessed the advent of early modern medicine and anatomical science. Sixteenth-century Italian Renaissance artists rendered images in painting and sculpture that are so higholy mimetic as to be nearly lifelike.

Book Description:

During the sixteenth-century Italian renaissance, artists rendered images in painting and sculpture that are so highly mimetic as to be nearly lifelike. Critical language describing such works became codified. This same period witnessed the advent of early modern medicine and anatomical science. Bringing together a wealth of research and ideas from the histories of art, medicine, and natural philosophy, this book demonstrates the significance of lifelikeness for contemporaries and also considers the implications of claims that artwork is "a living thing."

About the Author:

Fredrika H. Jacobs is professor of art history at Virginia Commonwealth University. A scholar of Italian Renaissance art, she is the author of Defining the Renaissance: Virtuosa Women Artists and the Language of Art History and Criticism.
