    Leonardo da Vinci


    ......

    by James Pearson

    Leonardo's art is the apotheosis of Renaissance - and Western - art. He depicted angels, Madonnas and saints in ever-mysterious images. His sfumato paintings remain some of the most hypnotic in art. The sheer intensity of Leonardo's curiosity and his spectacular inventiveness in the fields of science, botany, geology, anatomy, medicine and warfare make him more than worthy of the name 'universal genius'.
    The most erotic artist of the Renaissance, the one who created the darkest and the strangest images, who created the most hypnotic smiles in art, who took Western painting to the highest point it has reached, was not Michelangelo Buonarroti, Andrea del Sarto, Fra Angelico, Sandro Botticelli or Piero della Francesca, but Leonardo da Vinci. He is the creator of the Mona Lisa, and '[t]he Mona Lisa is without doubt the most famous work in the entire forty-thousand year history of the visual arts' writes Roy McMullen.
    Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most celebrated of artists. He is the artist-as-hero, the artist-as-genius - undisputed genius (like William Shakespeare or Sophocles). Leonardo is exalted for his amazing mind, his scientific curiosity, his ideas on botany, anatomy, architecture, weaponry, engineering, etc. He wrote copiously, on art and painting, and philosophy; subjects studied in his notebooks include geology, optics, acoustics, music, mathematics, anatomy, hydraulics, ballistics, weight, movement, naval armaments, flight and so on. He 'invented', or rediscovered, the bicycle, an early form of military tank, the helicopter; he understood the principle of gravity before Newton, and explained why stars twinkled before Kepler; he prefigured Bacon, Galileo, Huygens, Cuvier and Halley, among others. Nothing is neglected in Leonardo's 'scientific' curiosity about the world. Artists have long studied all manner of things, despising the relatively recent notion of 'specialization'.

    The text has been revised for this edition. With a full colour cover.
    Illustrated, including new illustrations. Painters Series. Bibliography and notes.

    LEONARDO DA VINCI





    By Maurice W. Brockwell

    A short introduction to the art and life of Leonardo da Vinci. First published in 1908, this book explores Leonardo’s artistic career from his early works, through the famous pieces such as The Last Supper, the Mona Lisa and The Virgin of the Rocks, to his last works.
    Leonardo da Vinci's art is the apotheosis of Renaissance - and Western - art. He depicted angels, Madonnas and saints in ever-mysterious images.

    Fra Angelico

    Art and Religion in the Renaissance


    ...

    by Rosalind Mutter

    Beato Angelico is the Quattrocento painter of Florence whose Annunciations, Enthroned Madonnas and San Marco frescoes are amongst the greatest works of the Renaissance. Rosalind Mutter founds her reading of Angelico on the San Marco Museum in Florence, with its deeply moving series of monk's cells and frescoes. The author interprets Fra Angelico as one of the greatest religious artists of any era, whose simple, bright and holy images are among the most profound in Western art.

    Fra Angelico, known by various names, including Fra Giovanni Beato Angelico da Fiesole (1399?-1455), is one of the very few painters of the Italian Renaissance who painted religious pictures exclusively. Almost all Angelico's paintings are religious - he did not paint secular portraits, like, say, Giovanni Bellini or Ghirlandaio. It was Vasari who stressed Angelico's purity, holiness, faith, humility and devout nature, and this description of Angelico as a holy monk-like painter persists throughout the centuries. John Ruskin called Angelico 'an inspired saint'.
    It is in San Marco in Florence that Angelico's 'saintly' reputation was forged. He (with assistants) painted fifty frescoes at San Marco. The paintings reveal a traditional form of Christian worship: Angelico's is a conventional kind of Christian theology and devotion. Some critics emphasize Angelico as a stylist. Of course, Angelico did not separate style from content in the way modern critics do. Clearly, they are part of the same thing. For the Renaissance religious painter, the aim is to come up with a style, colouration and technique which accords with one's beliefs, as well as flattering the faith of one's patrons. So Angelico's 'sweet style' stems from his blending of painterly technique with religious understanding.
    Fra Angelico stands at the transition between the mediaeval and Renaissance worlds. Angelico's 'feelings are in the Middle Ages', Bernard Berenson wrote, yet he was distinctly a Quattrocento, Renaissance painter. His art combines the timelessness and rigidity of icon painting, where figures are caught in bright, static, hieratic motions, with the new painterly explorations (in form, style and space) of the Quattrocento period.

    Fra Angelico





    By Jennie Ellis Keysor

    FRA ANGELICO, known by several names, including Fra Giovanni Beato Angelico da Fiesole (1399?-1455), is one of the very few painters of the Italian Renaissance who painted religious pictures exclusively. Almost all Angelico's paintings are religious - he did not paint secular portraits, like, say, Giovanni Bellini or Ghirlandaio.

    Fra Angelico's paintings seem simple, but their simplicity is deceptive: they are the products of training and skill. Giulio Carlo Argan reminds us that 'everything points to Fra Angelico's being in touch with the most advanced artists of his early day'. The deep spiritual feeling and tenderness of Fra Angelico's art seems 'simple' or 'innocent'. It does not seem cynical and world-weary. Yes, but the simplicity is not so much childish as child-like, as a regaining of the freshness of the spirit of childhood. A reactivation of the maternal realm, perhaps, which Fra Angelico manages to accomplish with a directness most other painters are incapable of reproducing.

    Giovanni Bellini


    ...

    by Julia Davis

    Giovanni Bellini (c. 1430-1516) is the author of some of the most exquisite of Renaissance paintings. He is, in a sense, the painter's painter, who had a long career, like his pupil, Titian, in painting. He influenced many artists, among them Titian, Giorgione, Vecchio, Sebastiano del Piombo, and Albrecht Durer. His influences include Andreas Mantegna, his father, Jacopo Bellini, Antonello, and Donatello.
    Giovanni Bellini does everything in his paintings that Renaissance painters are supposed to do: he painted beautiful pictures, devotional images, of the Madonna, Christ and various saints; he painted mythological scenes, and scenes from history; he refined and defined Early Renaissance space, bringing it into the High Renaissance; he inaugurated a new feeling for landscape; he remained true to the sacred and emotional aspects of painting to the end of his career; he developed the various formats of Renaissance painting - the small, private devotional pictures, the large, public altarpieces, a host of secular portraits and large-scale friezes.
    One might see Giovanni Bellini as supremely a high Renaissance artist, especially in his later altarpieces, where his sense of space seems in tune with Titian or Raphael. Bellini's style is very sweet. His paintings are full of a love for painting, and a love for his subjects. The ambiguities in his works do not arise from his intentions, which are, as with so many Renaissance painters, to be as exalting as possible. So his Madonnas and saints are lovingly painted.

    ...craftsmen of Western art reveal better than anyone else the artist’s debt to the maternal body and/or motherhood’s entry into symbolic existence - that is, translibidinal jouissance, eroticism taken over by the language of art. Not only is a considerable portion of pictorial art devoted to motherhood, but within this representation itself, from Byzantine iconography to Renaissance humanism and the worship of the body that it initiates, two attitudes toward the maternal body emerge, prefiguring two destinies within the very economy of Western representation. Leonardo da Vinci and Giovanni Bellini seem to exemplify in the best fashion the opposition between these two attitudes. On the one hand, there is a tilting toward the body as fetish. On the other, a predominance of luminous, chromatic differences beyond and despite corporeal representation. Florence and Venice. Worship of the figurable, representable man; or integration of the image accomplished in its truthlikeness within the luminous serenity of the unrepresentable.

    (Julia Kristeva, from "Motherhood According to Bellini")




     
     



    GIOVANNI BELLINI





    By George Hay

    Giovanni Bellini (c. 1430-1516) is the author of some of the most exquisite of Renaissance paintings. He is, in a sense, the painter's painter, who had a long career, like his pupil, Titian, in painting. He influenced many artists, among them Titian, Giorgione, Vecchio, Sebastiano del Piombo, and Albrecht Durer. His influences include Andreas Mantegna, his father, Jacopo Bellini, Antonello, and Donatello.
    Giovanni Bellini does everything in his paintings that Renaissance painters are supposed to do: he painted beautiful pictures, devotional images, of the Madonna, Christ and several saints; he painted mythological scenes, and scenes from history; he refined and defined Early Renaissance space, bringing it into the High Renaissance; he inaugurated a new feeling for landscape; he remained true to the sacred and emotional aspects of painting to the end of his career; he developed the several formats of Renaissance painting - the small, private devotional pictures, the large, public altarpieces, a host of secular portraits and large-scale friezes.
    One might see Bellini as supremely a High Renaissance artist, especially in his later altarpieces, where his sense of space seems in tune with Titian or Raphael. Bellini's style is very sweet. His paintings are full of a love for painting, and a love for his subjects. The ambiguities in his works do not arise from his intentions, which are, as with so many Renaissance painters, to be as exalting as possible. So his Madonnas and saints are lovingly painted.
    There is an undeniable sensuality in Giovanni Bellini's art. Central to his art is his sensuality. It is the same with the art of Leonardo, Caravaggio, Titian, Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Rubens. The sensuality of the paintings themselves, as objects, is crucial to their evaluation aesthetically. Bellini is a sensual painter - not simply in his treatment of eroticism, or in the eroticism of his forms, but also because he painted self-consciously erotic subjects. He painted female nudes: the Woman with a Mirror (in Vienna), in The Feast of the Gods (in Washington) and in the restollo of Truth (in Venice).
    Giovanni Bellini's sacred art is as erotic as his secular art, as with many a painter. Indeed, one might say that some of Bellini's Christian paintings are more erotic than his paintings of mythological or historical subjects. His Pietas, for instance, with that lovingly described dead, nude Christ, may be seen as more erotic than the Classical scenes. The eroticism of art depends a lot on the viewer's response. And on painterly surface and technique.

    Piero della Francesca


    ..

    by Naomi Haskell

    One of the major artists of the Quattrocento, Piero della Francesca, who died in 1492, turned mathematics and perspective into a mysticism of space and light. Piero's graceful planar geometry was a precursor of Cubism and 20th century abstraction. Haskell concentrates on Piero's series of monumental Madonnas, the magnificent Madonna della Misericordia and the mysterious pregnant Goddess, the Madonna del Parto, also his Arezzo fresco cycle, the Resurrection, and the enigmatic Flagellation.
    Piero della Francesca has one of the most special and distinctive forms of space in painting. The bright, timeless spaces of Piero are instantly recognizable, and critics sometimes evoke Greek sculpture in connection with Piero's paintings. One might also see in his hermetic, ritualized and timeless paintings the art of Chinese landscape painting, with its evocations of emptiness, which hints at the radical void of Eastern mysticism (in Zen Buddhism and Taoism). Piero's hypnotic art coolly melds science with art, space with spirit, the personal with the cosmic, and history, myth and religion with time.
    Like the art of ancient Greece, Piero's paintings rejoice in eternal brilliance, an architectonic precision, a 'Classical' feeling for proportion and harmony. In Piero della Francesca's epoch, perspective, proportion and geometry attained a fetishistic quality. 'Seeing was theory-laden' as Michael Baxandall put it. Piero's sense of mathematics and perspective took in commercial arithemetic on the one hand, and the transcendent purity of the Pythagorean solids on the other.

    VAN EYCK






    By James Cyril M. Weale

    A fully illustrated introduction to one of the masters of Early Netherlandish painting, Jan van Eyck (c. 1390-1441), commonly described as the founder of modern oil painting. Includes a study of Van Eyck’s brother, Hubert.
    Early Netherlandish painting, also known as Flemish painting, is characterized by figurative realism, its incredible sense of domestic interiors and details, luminous light, its 'realist' faces, and its fusions of a micro- and macro- cosmic vision.
    All Early Netherlandish paintings were made on wood panels, and painted from light to dark in thin glazes. It is partly this subtle glazing which gives Early Netherlandish painting its glorious luminescence. The Early Netherlandish artists exploited the effects of different hues and thicknesses of glazes of oil paint, controlling how the glazes reflected light.

    Fully illustrated, including contemporaries of Van Eyck.

    Early Netherlandish Painting


    ...

    by Rosalind Mutter

    A fully illustrated survey of Early Netherlandish painting, featuring all of the major artists, and many lesser-known painters.
    Rosalind Mutter contrasts the wealth of Northern European art with the Italian Renaissance painters, and finds the Flemish artists every bit as rich and profound as Botticelli, Mantegna, Piero, Masaccio or Bellini.
    Early Netherlandish painting, also known as Flemish painting, is characterized by figurative realism, its incredible sense of domestic interiors and details, luminous light, its 'realist' faces, and its fusions of a micro- and macro- cosmic vision.
    We concentrate here on painters such as Rogier van der Weyden (1400-1464), Jan van Eyck (c. 1390-1441, commonly described as the founder of modern oil painting), Gerard David (c. 1460-1523), Hugo van der Goes (1440-1482), Hans Memling (1433-1494), Joos van Cleve (c. 1485-1540), Jan Gossaert, also called Mabuse (c. 1475/8-1532), Geertgen tot Sint Jans (fl. late 15th 1485/ 95), Quentin Massys (c. 1465-1530), Joachim Patinir (c. 1485-1524), Dieric Bouts (c. 1415-1475), Petrus Christus (fl. 1442-1473) and Bernard van Orley (c. 1488-1541).
    One of the most celebrated aspects of Early Netherlandish or Flemish painting is its heartfelt, intense religious emotion. It is this aspect that interests us in this book. The new aesthetic vision of Early Netherlandish art was later applied to still life paintings, satires, landscapes, and portraits, but it is the religious works with which we are concentrating on here.

    The Erotic Object


    Sexuality in Sculpture From Prehistory to the Present: Special Edition


    ...

    by Susan Quinnell

    The power and eroticism of sculpture, form, volume and space are sensitively explored in this wide-ranging study, which takes in the history of sculpture from prehistoric times to contemporary art.
    Featuring discussions of many famous sculptors, including: Michelangelo Buonarroti, Antonio Canova, Auguste Rodin, Eric Gill, Andy Goldsworthy, Jasper Johns, Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Barbara Hepworth and Gianlorenzo Bernini.
    Many contemporary artists are studied too, including installation and performance artists (Catherine Elwes, Karen Finley, Ana Mendieta, Carolee Schneemann), and women sculptors such as Alice Aycock, Mary Miss, Rebecca Horn, Nancy Graves, Eva Hesse, Kathe Kollwitz and Judy Chicago.
    Regardless of what sculpture depicts, it can be seen as erotic. The surfaces, materials and forms are  sensuous: wood, stone, marble, granite, clay,  bronze. Touching is  pleasure. It is a pleasure that is, perhaps, pre-institutional, pre-industrial and pre-political.
    Touching cuts through social and cultural constructs, such as art, ideology, education and war, and goes back to a primeval form of being. At  same time, touching is a sense of the  both personal and societal. John Keats said, 'touch has a memory'. Sculpture activates this fundamental relation with things. Sculpture renews contact with the simple but utterly crucial experiences such as touch, sight, and smell.

    Fully illustrated, with many rare and fascinating illustrations, including prints, paintings and buildings as well as sculptures and statues.

    This new edition has been completely updated, with many new ilustrations, a new introduction and bibliography.  296 pages

    Sex in Art

    Pornography and Pleasure in the History of Art and Design: Special Edition

    ...

    by Cassidy Hughes

    A comprehensive and detailed survey of erotic art from ancient times to the modern era.

    All of the major erotic artists of the Western tradition are analyzed (Egon Schiele, Hans Bellmer, Thomas Rowlandson, Pablo Picasso, Titian, Jean Baptiste Dominique Ingres, Felicien Rops, Leonardo da Vinci, Edgar Degas, and Eric Gill).
    Other chapters include erotica in ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt, Oriental erotic art (Taoist and Tantric art from China, Japan and India), gender and eroticism in Renaissance art, and the sensuality of sculpture. Each chapter contains illustrations. A discussion of the complex relationship between art and pornography provides the central critical axis for this challenging book. Each of the major views on erotica and porn are examined, from each political persuasion and argument. There are also chapters on censorship, on feminism, and the relation of erotic art to erotic literature.
    There are individual sections on many of the key erotic artists, such as Michelangelo Buonaroti, Leonardo da Vinci, Eric Gill, Gustave Moreau, the Surrealists, Jasper Johns, Constantin Brancusi, Egon Schiele, and Gustav Klimt.

    Cassidy Hughes is a writer and photographer. His previous books include Images of India (1982), Petrarch, Dante and the Troubadours (1992) and Sex in Art (1993).
