9780860788690: Painting Music in the Sixteenth Century: Essays in Iconography (Variorum Collected Studies)

Professor Slim deals here with the several roles that music can play in the artworks of the Renaissance, looking in particular at Italian painting of the 16th century. For understandable reasons, art historians sometimes neglect the role of music and, especially, that of musical notation when studying works of art. These studies not only identify musical compositions, wholly or partially inscribed in paintings - and tapestries, ceramics, prints as well - but also seek reasons why these particular musical compositions were included and analyse their relevance to the scene depicted. Furthermore, as many of these studies show, identifying a musical composition, especially if it has a text, leads to the formation of ideas about iconographical functions and thus augments interpretations of the visual art.

H. Colin Slim, University of California - Irvine, USA

Review:

'Slim is...excellent at tracing different versions of paintings to get behind what the ravages of time and restoration may have destroyed. Apart from the intrinsic interest of the various paintings here, this provides models of the scholarship necessary for others wishing to study music in paintings.' Early Music Review 'This is a welcome production by Ashgate, for the book includes several articles which until now had only been available in obscure publications... The book is highly recommended...' Music in Art '... provides useful scholarship in an underresearched area. Slim's text consists of eighteen of his essays written for various journals between 1964 and 1998 and an introduction, also written by him. Because the sources are so varied, it is useful to have this information and bibliography under one cover, especially for the art historian, who might not have ready access to journals of musicology... a good art history library would do its patrons a service to include this book in its collection and cross-reference it as such. All in all, the book is a good example of balanced cross-disciplinary scholarship, and it demonstrates that musicologists and art historians can help each other and learn from each other.' Sixteenth Century Journal
