Guida alla mostra: Hamilton, Art Gallery, 2015.

Italian Baroque painting is often discussed in terms of theatre and the creation of powerful visual spectacle through the dramatic use of light. Seventeenth-century painters pushed the limits of artistic expression to reshape the relationship between the illusionistic image and its audience with contrasting styles, new techniques, and by deploying extraordinary optical effects. Featuring some of Canada's foremost Baroque paintings, Illuminations examines how the functional and symbolic representation of light was the expression of a culture captivated by theatrical display. Set in the context of Italy's dynamic and international cultural capitals, Illuminations compares and contrasts religious, mythological, and popular imagery. Through a detailed examination of works by Nicolas Poussin, Luca Giordano and Jusepe de Ribera, amongst others, the book explores how 17th-century audiences were confronted with pictures that frequently broke conventions by manipulating the sources and meaning of light, while depicting all types of subjects; painters were able to transform light, controlling its role as a signifier of demeanour, emotion, or religious symbolism. The use of light coloured the historical legends and social mythologies of this extravagant world.

Pastures Green & Dark Satanic Mills. The British Passion for Landscape.

1907804342

London, 2014. Cm. 27x24, pp. 231, tavv. e figg. a coll. e in nero n. t., cart. e sovrac.

Catalogo della mostra: West Palm Beach, Norton Museum of Art, 2014-2015.

Pastures Green & Dark Satanic Mills recounts the story of British landscape painting from the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century to the present day. Examining 88 paintings from the National Museum of Wales, this volume traces the history of landscape art through romanticism, impressionism and modernism right up to the postindustrial imagery of the 21st century. The book presents two major essays: one by Tim Barringer on the tradition of British landscape painting and its position within an increasingly industrialized society, the other by Oliver Fairclough on the significance of the Welsh landscape within the British tradition. Loosely chronological and divided into 6 thematic sections, this new volume demonstrates the strong continuity between the British art of today and that of over 250 years ago: contemporary works, such as conceptual artist Richard Long’s photo pieces based on hiking in the Welsh mountains echo the poetics of place as deeply as Richard Wilson’s landscapes of the 1740s.

Sublime Beauty. Raphael's Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn. Edited by Esther Bell.

1907804731

London, 2015. Cm. 29x21, pp. 72, tavv. 4 e figg. 20 a col. e in nero n. t., tela e sovrac.

Catalogo della mostra: Cincinnati, Cincinnati Art Museum, 2015-2016.

Sublime Beauty: Raphael’s "Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn" focuses on one of the artist’s most beguiling and enigmatic paintings and the mysterious blonde sitter who epitomized his female portraiture during his Florentine period. Three essays by leading specialists in Renaissance art, Linda Wolk-Simon, Mary Shay-Millea and Anna Coliva explore the stylistic relationship between this masterpiece and Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and the link to Petrarch’s poetry and popular notions of beauty in Renaissance art. They examine attributions and the painting’s distinct iconography, and why, in place of the usual lapdog, the woman holds a unicorn.They also address the intriguing question of the sitter's identity; might she be the half-sister of Lucrezia Borgia?
