Description : Read Now Giotto And The Arena Chapel by Laura Jacobus and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this book is divided into two parts, the first presenting new evidence and reconstructions of the chapel's design and early history; the second offering new interpretations of giotto's frescoes. appendices present original sources, all of which are newly-discovered, unpublished or previously published in inaccessible editions. an outline of the early history of the scrovegni family and the career of the chapel's patron, enrico scrovegni, introduces the first part of the book. it is argued that the chapel's varied functions played an important part in determining the form of the building and the content of its frescoes. a complete reconstruction of the appearance of the arena chapel at the time of its consecration in 1305 forms the basis for an entirely new understanding of giotto's frescoes. giotto was the architect of the arena chapel, architecture and decoration were completely integrated in his design. changes in the design brief during the period 1300-1305 prevented the full realization of his design. some of the paintings now seen in the arena chapel, which have always been attributed to giotto, are not in fact by him. several independent masters worked under giotto's direction. he headed a flexibly-organized workshop. part ii is introduced by a discussion of the frescoes that would be encountered by visitors to the arena chapel. these frescoes were deliberately placed in these positions by giotto in order to further a process of luminal transformation upon entry into sacred space. giotto employed radically new compositional devices to evoke correspondences between the pictured protagonists in their fictive environments, and viewers in the real environment of the chapel. dr. laura jacobus' research interests cover various aspects of italian visual culture during the period c.1250-1450. she teaches at birkbeck university of london.

Description : Read Now Giotto by Bruce Cole and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. "thirty miles to the southwest of venice, in a small park in padua, lies a modest red brick building, the scrovegni (or arena) chapel, that contains one of the jewels of early renaissance art: the most extensive fresco cycle by giotto. perfectly preserved, it established giotto's genius for displacing the byzantine style of painting and introducing the fundamental principles of renaissance humanism into art. painted around 1306, the nearly forty large frescoes that cover the walls and ceiling of the chapel tell stories from the lives of the virgin, christ, and the virgin's parents, sts. joachim and anne. created with a subtle yet brilliant array of colors - shimmering blues, golden reds, subtle ivories - these easy-to-read narrative panels have remained comprehensible and evocative to viewers for generations; this may be because, unlike much of the art that preceded giotto, his images contain sacred figures that behave in human ways, bodies as well as faces that register human feelings familiar to us all. the scrovegni chapel is giotto's masterpiece; it established him as the most famous artist of his day, not only in italy but in all of europe. it is little wonder that the art of giotto has held the attention of western civilization for over half a millennium"--bookjacket.

Description : Read Now The Usurer S Heart by Anne Derbes and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. at the turn of the fourteenth century, enrico scrovegni constructed the most opulent palace that the city of padua had seen, and he engaged the great florentine painter, giotto, to decorate the walls of his private chapel (1303-5). in that same decade, dante consigned enrico's father, a notorious usurer, to the seventh circle of hell. the frescoes rank with dante's divine comedy as some of the great monuments of late medieval italian culture, and yet much about the fresco program is incompletely understood. most traditional studies of the arena chapel have examined the frescoes as individual compositions, largely divorced from their original context, almost as if they were panels detached from an altarpiece and hung on a museum wall for the viewing pleasure of the connoisseur. anne derbes and mark sandona, in contrast, consider each image as part of an intricate network of visual and theological associations comparable to that of dante's poem. the authors show how this remarkable ensemble of paintings offers complex meanings, meanings shaped by several interested parties--patron, confessor, and painter. the usurer's heart pieces together new historical evidence on the chapel's origins and describes the fresco program as, in part, an attempt to ameliorate the scrovegni family's reputation. it interprets the chapel's fresco program and the chapel's place in the heart of an ambitious and guilt-ridden moneylender.

Description : Read Now The Arena Chapel And The Genius Of Giotto by Andrew Ladis and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this four-volume set provides the most comprehensive collection of modern scholarly literature on the artist and his work. assembling writings that are as disparate as they are sometimes hard to retrieve, it permits readers to consider the state of scholarship on a variety of specific problems surround giotto's life and sheds light on larger historical issue concerning early italian art and culture. in doing so, the series lays bare the methodological preoccupations of scholars since the nineteenth century. above all, matters of connoisseurship and the larger question of the nature of the matter's art have governed the study of giotto. perhaps in part because of the intractability of the problems involved in arriving at an agreed-upon catalogue and chronology for giotto, the arena chapel has served the chief means of demonstrating giotto's pictorial subtlety, his dramatic range, and his intellectual depth. curiously, the arena chapel came to be regarded as the cornerstone of giotto's genius only in the nineteenth century. the notion of the essentially sculptural character of giotto's art, pervasive in modern scholarship, is likewise recent, acquiring canonical status thanks to bernard berenson's celebration of "tactile values" in the ognissanti madonna. the second volume focuses on giotto's chief work, the cycle of murals in the arena chapel, padua.
