The studies in which history of art and theatre are considered together are few, and none to date investigate the evolution of the representation of clouds from the early Renaissance to the Baroque period. This book reconsiders the origin of Italian Renaissance and Baroque cloud compositions while including the theatrical tradition as one of their most important sources. By examining visual sources such as paintings, frescos and stage designs, together with letters, guild-ledgers, descriptions of performances and relevant treatises, a new methodology to approach the development of this early modern visuality is offered. The result is an historical reconstruction where multiple factors are seen as facets of a single process which led to the development of Italy’s visual culture. The book also offers new insights into Leonardo da Vinci’s theatrical works, Raphael’s Disputa, Vasari’s Lives, and Pietro da Cortona’s fresco paintings. The Spectacle of Clouds, 1439-1650 examines the different ways Heaven has been conceived, imagined and represented from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century, crossing over into the fields of history, religion and philosophy.

About the Author:

Dr Alessandra Buccheri is specialised in early Modern Italian art. She studied at the universities of Florence and Oxford, where she received her PhD. She is currently a lecturer at the Fine Art University of Palermo, Italy.

Review:

This study offers a definitive chronology and morphology of stage machinery, including the emphasis on Florence and the rewriting of the 'Baroque cloud dome' history from Correggio to Lanfranco. There is a mine of great information throughout the book and anyone seeking to use the book selectively to learn about one monument - e.g. Cigoli's dome in Santa Maria Maggiore - will find the structural elements of each example outlined and be able to understand where such a monument stands in the larger development of dome decoration. --Ian Verstegen (University of Pennsylvania) is author of Cognitive Iconology: When and How Psychology Explains Images
