The Italian Renaissance was a pivotal period in the history of Western culture during which artists such as Masaccio, Donatello, Fra Angelico, and Leonardo created some of the world's most influential and exciting works in a variety of artistic fields. Here, Evelyn Welch presents a fresh picture of the Italian Renaissance by challenging traditional scholarship and placing emphasis on recreating the experience of contemporary Italians: the patrons who commissioned the works, the members of the public who viewed them, and the artists who produced them. Art in Renaissance Italy 1350-1500 dramatically revises the traditional story of the Renaissance and takes into account new issues that have greatly enriched our understanding of the period. From paintings and coins to sculptures and tapestries, Welch examines the issues of materials, workshop practices, and artist-patron relationships, and explores the ways in which visual imagery related to contemporary sexual, social, and political behavior.

Review:


"His discussion is marked by its scholarly breadth, clarity of argument, and willingness to include objects not within the canonic corpus....Welch's deeply informed and wide-ranging synthesis is a significant and welcome addition to the literature."--Library Journal


"This is a splendid book: well-conceived, lucidly presented, beautifully illustrated. The practical information on the production of works of art (the techniques of fresco painting and casting bronze) and on the social organization of artistic production is most welcome."--Daniel Bornstein, Texas A&M University


"An up-to-date, lucid and entirely readable synthesis of a wide range of current scholarship...should be required reading."--Nicholas Mann, Warburg Institute


"Learned and helpful...I do not know any other book which covers these topics so satisfactorily."--George Holmes, All Souls, Oxford


"A fresh and richly documented perspective on the role of images in the early Renaissance."--Martin Kemp, Trinity College, Oxford

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Between the `Black Death' in the mid-fourteenth century and the French invasions at the end of the fifteenth, artists such as Masaccio, Donatello, Fra Angelico, and Leonardo, working in the kingdoms, princedoms, and republics of the Italian peninsula, created some of the most influential and exciting works in a variety of artistic fields. Yet the traditional story of the Renaissance has been dramatically revised in the light of new scholarship, and new issues have greatly enriched our understanding of the period. Emphasis has been placed on recreating the experience of contemporary Italians - the patrons who commissioned the works, the members of the public who viewed them, and the artists who produced them. In this book Evelyn Welch presents a fresh picture of the Italian Renaissance. Giving equal weight to the Italian regions outside Florence, she discusses a wide range of works, from paintings to coins, and from sculptures to tapestries, examines the issues of materials, workshop practises, and artist-patron relationships, and explores the ways in which visual imagery related to contemporary sexual, social and political behaviour.
