Title: Il restauro della cupola della cattedrale di San Lorenzo : GALEAZZO ALESSI a Genova
Author: Montagni, Claudio (ed)
Price: $79.95
ISBN: 9788863735468
Record created on 04/17/18
Description: Genova: Sagep, 2018. 30cm., pbk., 200pp. illus.

Summary: Il volume prende in considerazione la cupola del più importante edificio sacro genovese: la Chiesa Metropolitana di San Lorenzo, Cattedrale di Genova. La struttura, recentemente sottoposta ad un accurato intervento di restauro, costituisce anche la prima opera genovese dell’architetto perugino Galeazzo Alessi, che la edificò intorno alla metà del XVI secolo, introducendo così questo archetipo architettonico nella città, dove in precedenza era sconosciuto. Sostituendo il tiburio di origine medievale con questo nuovo tipo di coronamento della parte sommitale degli edifici sacri, basato sui modelli illustri dell’architettura romana rinascimentale, Alessi apriva così la via ai successivi sviluppi dell’edilizia sacra genovese seicentesca. Il testo, basato sui dati emersi dai lavori di restauro e su un’ampia documentazione archivistica, in gran parte inedita, ripercorre le vicende della costruzione della cupola, partendo dal periodo medievale per giungere sino alle modifiche del XIX secolo. Viene analizzato attentamente il contesto in cui l’architetto perugino è chiamato ad operare sia dal punto di vista storico-culturale, sia riguardo agli aspetti della cultura materiale e delle tecniche edificatorie, sottolineando il rapporto con l’ambiente romano di provenienza, dominato dalle grandi figure di Michelangelo e dei Sangallo. È un momento cruciale per Genova, che entra così a pieno titolo nella civiltà rinascimentale. Il volume contiene anche un resoconto molto accurato del complesso intervento di restauro, concluso nei primi mesi del 2018, che ha comportato una serie di capillari analisi diagnostiche e la risoluzione di una vasta gamma di problematiche strutturali, conservative, tecniche ed estetiche.

Title: RENATE ALLER : Mountain Interval
Author: Sultan, Terrie
Price: $60.00
ISBN: 9781942185383
Record created on 12/27/17
Description: Santa Fe: Radius Books, 2018. 36 x 26cm., hardcover, 164pp., 65 color images.

Summary: The latest project from New York–based photographer Renate Aller includes mountain peaks from six continents. These photographs were taken from locations as high as 22,500 feet (adjacent to Mount Everest) to the European glaciers and mountain peaks of her childhood vacations. The subject matter is monumental, yet the images connect the viewer in a way that is not overpowering. Similar to the sand dune images from Ocean | Desert, the artist engages us with these giants in all their detail, the veins and textures of the rocks in their constantly transient state. Aller isolates the mountain from its expected surroundings, using and presenting the familiar and the known in an intimate way, relating to parallel realities from different locations, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live.

Description: München: Deutscher Kunstverlag, 2018. 24cm., pbk., ca. 368pp., 10 color, 107 b&w illus.

Summary: Im Mittelpunkt der Studie stehen Entwicklung, Gestaltung und Funktion von Altargemälden mit eingebettetem Gnadenbild im Italien des 15. bis 17. Jahrhunderts. Vor allem für ältere Marienbilder schufen Künstler eigens Altarwerke als Rahmung, um die Wahrnehmung des Betrachters visuell und emotional zu lenken. Dieser Gattung des "Rahmenbildes" widmet sich die Autorin erstmalig systematisch. Ein Katalogteil zeigt nicht nur die weite Verbreitung der Werke in Oberund Mittelitalien, sondern auch die ikonographische und stilistische Kontinuität. Anhand ausgewählter Arbeiten von Künstlern wie Empoli, Santi di Tito oder Francesco Vanni erläutert der Band die Bildthemen, die Materialität und Medialität der mehrteiligen Gemälde und verankert das Rahmenbild innerhalb der Frömmigkeitspraktiken zur Zeit der Katholischen Reform. Unter Berücksichtigung zahlreicher Inventarbücher, Berichte von Kirchenbesuchen, historischer Abhandlungen und lokaler Guidenliteratur wird die Bedeutung der Rahmenbilder bei der Verehrung von Gnadenbildern anschaulich.

Title: BELLINI | MANTEGNA : Masterpieces face-to-face : The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple
Author: Blass-Simmen, Brigit ; Neville Rowley ; Giovanni C.F. Villa
Price: $47.50
ISBN: 9788836639557
Record created on 02/28/18
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2018. 26cm., pbk., 144pp., 100 illus. Exhibition held at Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venezia. English text

Summary: Giovanni Bellini, ‘one of the great Italian poets’ in the words of Roberto Longhi, and Andrea Mantegna, he who ‘sculpted [the image] alive and real in his painting’ in the sonnet by Ulisse degli Aleotti, were two giants in the history of Western art – extremely distant in character, certainly, yet connected by deep family ties. Nicolosia – Jacopo Bellini’s daughter and thus half-sister to Giovanni – married Mantegna in 1453. This marriage engendered one of the most fascinating pictorial dialogues of the Quattrocento, as they both developed the motif of The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. A pair of works exhibited side-by-side for the very first time, half a millennium after they were painted. An extraordinary event narrated down to the last detail in this volume, through a riveting analysis of the paintings themselves and of the relationship between the two artists.

Record created on 06/14/17
Description: Petersberg: Imhof, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 304pp., 90 color, 81 b&w illus.

Summary: Als im Jahr 1204 eine der schillerndsten Frauenfiguren des Mittelalters, Eleonore von Aquitanien, einst Königin von England und vormals von Frankreich, verstarb, erhielt sie als früheste bekannte mittelalterliche Königin ein Grabmal mit einer lebensgroßen Liegefigur. Sie wurde damit zu einer Vorreiterin für einen Grabmalstyp, der großen Erfolg haben sollte. Bis zur Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts wurden in den mittel- und westeuropäischen Königreichen die Grabstätten von mindestens 90 Königinnen mit figürlich gestalteten Grabmälern ausgezeichnet. Diese zum Teil erhaltenen sowie in Bild- oder Schriftquellen überlieferten Monumente wurden in der vorliegenden Studie erstmals in ihrer Gesamtheit in einem Katalog zusammengetragen und ausführlich dokumentiert. Die vergleichende Untersuchung stellt im ersten Teil die Frage nach den formalen und materialikonologischen Gestaltungsprinzipien, ergänzt um kostüm- und schmuckgeschichtliche Aspekte der dargestellten Liegefiguren, in den Vordergrund. In einem zweiten Teil wird die Funktion derartiger Grabanlagen beleuchtet und vor dem Hintergrund der jeweiligen Auftraggeberschaft analysiert .

Contents: Teil A: Form - Formale Typologie - Versuch einer Klassifizierung und Terminologie - Ikonologie des Materials - Strategien der Individualisierung - Die Ikonographie des Schmucks. Teil B: Funktion - Die Bedeutung der Stifter - Kaiser und Könige als Auftraggeber - Königinnengrabmäler mit unbekannten Stiftern - Eine Annäherung - Mütter und Heilige - Die Inszenierung der Nachkommen bei den Anjou - Promotion von Heiligkeit - Die Funktion von Mehrfachgrablegen im Rahmen der Jenseitsvorsorge - Definition - Die Mehrfachgrablegen der französischen Königinnen - Die Herz- und Eingeweidegrablegen der französischen Königinnen. Schlussebetrachtungen - Grabmal und Gender Teil C: Katalog.

Title: Windsor Castle: A Thousand Years of A Royal Palace
Author: Brindle, Steven (ed)
Price: $95.00
ISBN: 9781909741249
Record created on 11/01/17
Description: London: Royal Collection Trust, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, 560pp., 600 color illus.

Summary: When we envision the British monarchy, one of the first things that comes to mind is Buckingham Palace, with its gilded gates and changing of the guard. But it is Windsor Castle that can claim pride of place as the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, dating to the earliest days of the monarchy, a symbol of strength and magnificence over a nearly thousand-year history of sieges and soirées alike. Witness to both great moments in the country’s history and those that threatened to destroy it, the castle has become a symbol of English culture—and architecture. Throughout England’s history, Windsor Castle has stood fast and evolved, much like the monarchy that inhabits it to this day. The magisterial Windsor Castle: A Thousand Years of a Royal Palace illuminates the castle’s past using evidence from archaeological investigation and documentary sources, and is illustrated with paintings, drawings, and both historical and specially commissioned contemporary photographs, as well as stunning reconstructions of the castle’s past appearance which bring this essential piece of English history to life.

Summary: Un panorama dello straordinario patrimonio architettonico e artistico di immobili storici dell’area fiorentina che per secoli sono stati utilizzati (o sono nati per questo uso) come ospedali. La rinnovata attenzione anche a scopi museali verso questo patrimonio, oggi in parte non utilizzato a causa di problemi strutturali o tecnici e talvolta letteralmente abbandonato per difficoltà burocratiche o finanziarie degli enti pubblici ha suggerito lo studio delle condizioni attuali e della grande ricchezza di di opere d’arte conservate negli ospedali di San Giuseppe di Empoli, Misericordia e Dolce di Prato, Ceppo di Pistoia, Serristori di Figline, Lorenzo Pacini di San Marcello Pistoiese, SS. Cosma e Damiano di Pescia, SS.

Il volume illustra i caratteri architettonici, lo sviluppo funzionale e le peculiarità medico-sanitarie delle istituzioni ospedaliere. Esamina l’entità del loro patrimonio storico-artistico anche attraverso un regesto, con foto e didascalie, che contiene dipinti e sculture, testimonianze soggette a furti e dispersioni.

Title: TACITA DEAN : Landscape, Portrait, Still Life
Author: Harris, Alexandra (et al)
Price: $39.95
ISBN: 9781910350874
Record created on 01/15/18
Description: London: Royal Academy of Arts, 2018. 29cm., hardcover, 224pp., 200 color illus.

Summary: British artist Tacita Dean (born 1964) first came to the attention of the art world with her surrealistic 16-mm film “The Story of Beard” (1992), making a name for herself as part of the Young British Artists generation—even if Dean’s slow, subtle films would seem to have little in common with the raucous works of her peers. Dean was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998 and has since been a vocal advocate for the medium of film. In 2018, Dean brings major exhibitions to three of London’s leading art institutions: the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts. Each exhibition will provide an encounter with the filmmaker’s work through a different lens: landscape, portrait and still life. Tacita Dean: Landscape, Portrait, Still Life unites the three exhibitions in one stunning survey volume. Works drawn from Dean’s entire career to the present day are brought together with texts by leading writers Alexandra Harris, Alan Hollinghurst and Ali Smith providing unique insights into Dean’s vision.

Record created on 12/08/17
Description: New York: Guggenheim Publications, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 160pp., 130 illus.

Summary: This comprehensive survey of the work of the Swiss-born modern master Alberto Giacometti offers a fresh and incisive account of his creative output. Published on the occasion of Giacometti’s first major museum presentation in the US in over a decade, the volume brings together nearly 200 sculptures, paintings and drawings to trace the artist’s wide-ranging and hugely innovative engagement with the human form across various mediums. While Giacometti may be best known for his distinct figurative sculptures that emerged after World War II, including a series of elongated standing women, striding men and expressive busts, this volume devotes equal attention to the artist’s early and midcareer development. It explores his lesser-known engagement with Cubism and Surrealism as well as African, Oceanic and Cycladic art, while also highlighting his remarkable talents as a draftsman and painter alongside his sculptural oeuvre. Of particular focus is Giacometti’s studio practice, which is examined through rarely seen plaster sculptures that highlight the artist’s working process, in addition to historical photographs documenting his relationship with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum—which hosted the artist’s first US museum exhibition, in 1955—and with New York City.

Summary: Lange Zeit galt Genrekunst als Abbild der Wirklichkeit und der Prozess zunehmender Säkularisierung schien die Ursache ihrer Entstehung. Heute herrschen Erklärungen vor, welche die Genrekunst im Sinne gemalter Ethik und Lasterdarstellungen als Beitrag eines christlich-didaktischen Programms werten. Der vorliegende Band erweitert diese Perspektiven. Denn die Genremalerei stellt sich politischen, theologischen wie kunsttheoretischen Fragen und erweist sich als Medium einer im Aufbruch begriff enen Welt. So ist es kein Zufall, dass sich die Anfänge der Genrekunst im 15. Jahrhundert in druckgraphischen Werken - im fortschrittlichsten Reproduktionsmedium jener Zeit - fi nden. Dabei adressiert sie ein städtisches Publikum, das im Alltag immer wieder dem Problem christlicher Lebensführung gegenübersteht. Die Publikation versammelt Beiträge mit Interpretationen exemplarischer Genrebilder von Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, Petrus Christus oder Jan Sanders van Hemessen und regt zu einer Neubewertung der Gattung an, um sie als selbstrefl exive, konfl iktoff ene Kunstform sichtbar zu machen.

Summary: Published for MoMA’s retrospective exhibition and in collaboration with the artist, this volume presents new critical essays that expand on Piper's practice in ways that have been previously under- or unaddressed. Focused texts by established and emerging scholars assess themes in Piper’s work such as the Kantian framework that draws on her extensive philosophical studies; her unique contribution to first-generation conceptual art; the turning point in her work, in the early 1970s, from conceptual works to performance; the connection of her work with her yoga practice; her ongoing exposure of and challenge to xenophobia and sexism; and the relation between prevailing interpretations of her work and the viewers who engender them.

Summary: Camillo Rusconi (1658-1728) ist zweifellos der bedeutendste römische Bildhauer des Spätbarock. Bislang fehlte jedoch eine grundlegende Studie zu seinem Gesamtwerk, die mit dieser Monographie nun vorgelegt wird. Im Zentrum steht das längst überfällige kritische Verzeichnis seiner bildhauerischen Arbeiten. Rusconis künstlerischer Werdegang wird beleuchtet und die großen Werkkomplexe, darunter die berühmten Apostelstatuen in der Lateranbasilika in Rom, werden detailliert aufgearbeitet und in den kunsttheoretischen Kontext eingebettet. Seine dynamischen und eindringlich blickenden Figuren stehen, fern von barockem Pathos, stets im Dienste des Erzählerischen. Die in Rusconis Werkstatt ausgebildeten Schüler Filippo della Valle, Giovanni Battista Maini, Pietro Bracci sowie Giuseppe Rusconi sorgten für ein langes Fortleben der Kunstauff assung ihres Lehrers. So gewährt der Band auch einen Überblick über die römische Kunstszene und erweist sich nicht zuletzt dank der Auswertung zahlreicher Quellen als Standardwerk für die Erforschung der Skulptur im 18. Jahrhundert. (Italienische Forschungen des Kunsthistorischen Institutes in Florenz, Vierte Folge, 12)

Summary: Daniele Sanguineti, presentando l’inedito disegno di Giovanni Battista Castello il Bergamasco per la pala della chiesa di San Sebastiano - di cui una scritta sul verso attesta un passaggio di mano a beneficio di Gaspare Forlani, intagliatore e specialista nell’esecuzione delle carpenterie -, affronta le modalità di inserimento, nel secondo Cinquecento, delle pale d’altare entro lo spazio della cappella attraverso l’impiego di cornici lignee dalla connotazione spiccatamente architettonica. Valentina Frascarolo, prendendo le mosse dalla casa-studio di Giovanni Battista Paggi, offre una nuova lettura dell’Accademia promossa dal collezionista Giovan Carlo Doria attraverso l’apporto grafico dei pittori che più intensamente la frequentarono e che furono attivi nel corso del primo Seicento (Luciano Borzone, Giulio Benso, Gioacchino Assereto, Gio. Domenico Cappellino). (Materiali d’arte genovese, 2)

Description: München: Deutscher Kunstverlag, 2018. 30cm., hardcover, ca. 352pp., 200 color illus. Exhibition held at Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, München.

Summary:

Summary: Die italienische Kunst fand in der Monumentalmalerei der Renaissance und des Barock zu faszinierenden, oft überwältigenden Lösungen. Michelangelos 'Sixtinische Decke', das 'Jüngste Gericht', Fresken Raff aels und Annibale Carraccis zählen zu den eindrucksvollsten Schöpfungen der Kunstgeschichte. Über Jahrhunderte hinweg prägten Holzschnitte, Kupferstiche und Radierungen die Vorstellung von diesen Meisterwerken massgeblich mit. Welche Strategien wurden entwickelt, die Dekorationen druckgraphisch zu inszenieren? Wie gelang es, Kuppelmalereien in die ebene Fläche des Papiers zu übertragen? Antwort auf diese Fragen geben hochkarätige Blätter und Mon tagen von Mantegna bis Tiepolo, von Andrea Andreani, Giulio Bonasone bis Carlo Cesio. Die Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München stellt in einer Überschau herausragende Beispiele dieses bisher wenig beachteten Zweiges der Druckgraphik in den Mittelpunkt. Der Ausstellungskatalog zeigt, wie sich Kunst in neue Kunst verwandelt, wie Komplexes und Grosses ins leicht Lesbare und Handliche der Graphik übersetzt wurde. Neben ausgewählten Hauptwerken erfasst der Katalog den Gesamtbestand von fast 1.000 Blättern nach Wandund Deckenbildern, unter anderem aufgeschlüsselt nach Druckgraphikern, erfi ndenden Malern und Orten.
