Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco (1477-1510), known as Giorgione was, with Titian, one of the founders of the Venetian School of Italian Renaissance painting with its emphasis on color and mood as opposed to the more linear style of the Florentine School. Giorgione is know for the poetic quality of his work, e.g. the Praxitelian beauty of his 'Venus' and his landscapes seems to reflect the lyrical attitude of Giorgione's soul. Though only 6 surviving paintings are acknowledged to be his work "no other painter conveys to us such a strong and vivid conception of the golden age of the Renaissance." (Richter). This oeuvre catalog is profusely illustrated with 68 plates of b/w reproductions of his exquisite artwork and some additional images in the text. Some of the more distinguished works by Giorgione are the "Sleeping Venus," "Judith," "The Three Philosophers," and "The Tempest" which is considered to be the first landscape in the history of Western painting. Contains a short list of engravings and drawings after lost Giorgiones, an extensive section of documents and literary sources, a chart of attributions, and index and list of illustrations at rear.Binding shows half an inch strip at top and foredge sunned, top and strip near spine; spine sunned.
