Titian and the Renaissance in Venice Hardback

Edited by Bastian Eclercy, Hans Aurenhammer

Hardback

Description

This dazzling survey of 16th-century Venetian painting captures the striking colors and revolutionary characteristics of one of art history's greatest chapters.

It is hard to imagine more profoundly influential artists than the Venetian painters of the 16th century.

Whether creating sweeping devotional altarpieces or intimate portraits, the Venetian painters changed the way artists employed color and composition.

These defining qualities are on brilliant display in this book that covers fascinating aspects of the work of Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, and many others.

More than one hundred paintings, drawings, and prints are reproduced in stunning detail.

Side-by-side comparisons draw readers into the conversations between Venetian artists as they tackled similar subjects and vied for commissions.

The book opens with fascinating essays about the history of 16th-century Venice, the Venetian School of painting, and the techniques of the Venetian masters.

As beautiful as it is informative, this book features all of the excitement and splendor of one of the most prolific and important chapters in the history of European art.
