Synopsis: The autonomous self-portrait, a central mode of expression in western art, was a Renaissance invention. This book explores for the first time the genesis and early development of this important genre as it took place in Italy in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Joanna Woods-Marsden examines a series of self-portraits in Renaissance Italy and their relation to the social status of art and artists. She argues that these self-images represented the aspirations of their creators to change the status of art and thereby their own social standing.
From Library Journal:
Woods-Marsden (art history, UCLA) presents a clear and convincing argument that Italian artists in the 15th and 16th centuries used autonomous self-portraits (which do not depend on their setting for interpretation) to raise the status of artists from craftsmen/technicians to intellectuals. She writes clearly and develops her arguments through case studies ranging from Alberti to Michelangelo, including women such as Sofonisba Anguissola and Lavinia Fonatana. She identifies substantial differences between the works of the 15th century and those that followed, indicating a successful effort on the part of artists to be accepted into their desired worlds of court and intellect. Within its self-imposed boundaries of time and form, the book is highly convincing. Highly recommended for advanced and special collections.AJack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Libs.
