Parution : Allie Terry-Fritsch, Somaesthetic Experience and the Viewer in Medicean Florence, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Somaesthetic Experience and the Viewer in Medicean Florence. Renaissance Art and Political Persuasion, 1459-1580 Viewers in the Middle Ages and Renaissance were encouraged to forge connections between their physical and affective states when they experienced works of art. They believed that their bodies served a critical function in coming to know and make sense of the world around them, and intimately engaged themselves with works of art and architecture on a daily basis. This book examines...

Parution : S. Solum, Women, Patronage, and Salvation in Renaissance Florence. Lucrezia Tornabuoni and the Chapel of the Medici Palace, Routledge, 2020

Long obfuscated by modern definitions of historical evidence and art patronage, Lucrezia Tornabuoni de’ Medici’s impact on the visual world of her time comes to light in this book, the first full-length scholarly argument for a lay woman’s contributions to the visual arts of fifteenth-century Florence. This focused investigation of the Medici family’s domestic altarpiece, Filippo Lippi’s Adoration of the Christ Child, is broad in its ramifications. Mapping out the cultural network of gender, piety,...

Parution : Katherine Ludwig Jansen, Peace and Penance in Late Medieval Italy, Princeton University Press, 2020

Medieval Italian communes are known for their violence, feuds, and vendettas, yet beneath this tumult was a society preoccupied with peace. Peace and Penance in Late Medieval Italy is the first book to examine how civic peacemaking in the age of Dante was forged in the crucible of penitential religious practice. Focusing on Florence in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, an era known for violence and civil discord, Katherine Ludwig Jansen brilliantly illuminates how religious and political...

Parution : Paula Nuttall, Geoffrey Nuttall and Michael Kwakkelstein, Filippino Lippi, Leyde, Brill, 2020

This volume presents fourteen papers originally delivered at the international conference Filippino Lippi: Beauty, Invention and Intelligence, at the Dutch University Institute (NIKI), Florence in 2017. Filippino (1457-1504), although one of the most original and gifted artists of the Florentine renaissance, has attracted less scholarly attention than his father Fra Filippo Lippi or his master Botticelli, and very little has been published on him in English. This book, authored by leading Renaissance art historians, covers diverse...

Parution : Carla d’Arista, The Pucci of Florence: Patronage and Politics in Renaissance Italy, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

The story of the Pucci family, great patrons of Renaissance art and architecture. Shrewd and ruthless, the Pucci were Medici loyalists whose political and cultural alignment with the most powerful family in Renaissance Florence was rewarded with wealth and influence. The Pucci’s martial support for the Medici in the dangerous business of ruling Tuscany drove their transformation from a clan of minor guildsmen to a noble dynasty with three cardinals to its name. Over the next...
