Raphael (1483-1520) was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. His work is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition, and for its visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artist's oeuvre, and authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artist's life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.

"The standard Italian edition of Vasari runs to nine volumes and covers a host of artists great and small. The Great Masters presents six of the most detailed and luminous biographies--the lives of Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Titian. With an ear for gossip, Vasari recorded for posterity the particualars of their lives while giving early expression to the world's lasting admiration for their genius. Vasari's texts are thoroughly annotated in this volume and are accompanied by a chronology that clearly relates the artists' lives to the historical events of their time. Moreover, this book is unique among publications of Vasari for its inclusion of works of art dicussed in the text. Consequently, The Great Masters lavishly reproduces most of the important works of painting, sculpture, drawing, architecture by these six artists in 120 full-color plates and 127 black-and-white illustrations,. Twenty pages of color gatefolds give appropriate scope to such works as Botticelli's Primavera and Michelangelo's frescoes for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.--from the jacket

This book is a panoramic view of the richest 300 years of Italian art: the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, which saw the creation of a constellation of masterpieces of painting and sculpture that has influenced art history for generations. The 1500s saw the era of the great Renaissance masters da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo, as well as the innovators of the mannerist style, del Sarto and Pontormo, and brilliant painters from the Venetian school including Giorgione, Titian, and Lotto. The northern artistic schools arose in the 1600s, led by Carracci, Reni, Guercino, and Domenichino. Included here are works by the revolutionary Caravaggio. Papal Rome is well represented by Bernini and Pietro da Cortona. The 1700s feature landscape artists including Canaletto, Bellotto, and Guardi, and from the Rococò period, Tiepolo and Gandolfi with sculptures by Canova and Giani.

This section of the Corpus Rubenianum is concerned with Rubens's remarkable study of Italian sixteenth-century art as shown through his numerous copies and adaptations. Rubens's study of the Cinquecento lasted throughout his life and was not just the focus of his early years in Antwerp when he learned his craft. At that time he used secondary copies as models for pen drawings or as a basis for enlarged painted adaptations such as his famous version in Dresden after Michelangelo's Leda. Rubens's most important full-size painted copies, however, were made as late as 1628-30 when he had travelled to Madrid and London and was in his fifties, a point when many artists would have thought they no longer needed to study. He may have made these copies because he could not buy the originals for his collection, but the act of creating such detailed visual records shows how attentive he was to the art of the past. This process culminated in his large and very free adaptations of the 1630s, now in Stockholm, after Titian's Andrians and Worship of Venus which are among the most famous copies in the history of art. Rubens made relatively few drawings from paintings while in Italy between 1600 and 1608, although some survive after frescoes by Pordenone that he saw in Treviso and there are also a number that record Michelangelo's paintings in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Most of the catalogue entries, however, discuss the Italian copy drawings that Rubens bought during his travels and brought home to Antwerp. It will be argued that these sheets were taken out and retouched by him throughout his career. In total, this material amounts to one of the largest collections of graphic art assembled by a late Renaissance painter, and as a result it reveals Rubens's sophisticated and complex dialogue with Italian art.

The Grace Of The Italian Renaissance

How grace shaped the Renaissance in Italy "Grace" emerges as a keyword in the culture and society of sixteenth-century Italy. The Grace of the Italian Renaissance explores how it conveys and connects the most pressing ethical, social and aesthetic concerns of an age concerned with the reactivation of ancient ideas in a changing world. The book reassesses artists such as Francesco del Cossa, Raphael and Michelangelo and explores anew writers like Castiglione, Ariosto, Tullia d'Aragona and Vittoria Colonna. It shows how these artists and writers put grace at the heart of their work. Grace, Ita Mac Carthy argues, came to be as contested as it was prized across a range of Renaissance Italian contexts. It characterised emerging styles in literature and the visual arts, shaped ideas about how best to behave at court and sparked controversy about social harmony and human salvation. For all these reasons, grace abounded in the Italian Renaissance, yet it remained hard to define. Mac Carthy explores what grace meant to theologians, artists, writers and philosophers, showing how it influenced their thinking about themselves, each other and the world. Ambitiously conceived and elegantly written, this book portrays grace not as a stable formula of expression but as a web of interventions in culture and society.

Raphael was the artist who most closely resembled Pheidias. The Greeks said that the latter invented nothing; rather, he carried every kind of art invented by his forerunners to such a pitch of perfection that he achieved pure and perfect harmony. Those words, “pure and perfect harmony,” express, in fact, better than any others what Raphael brought to Italian art. From Perugino, he gathered all the weak grace and gentility of the Umbrian School, he acquired strength and certainty in Florence, and he created a style based on the fusion of Leonardo's and Michelangelo's lessons under the light of his own noble spirit. His compositions on the traditional theme of the Virgin and Child seemed intensely novel to his contemporaries, and only their time-honoured glory prevents us now from perceiving their originality. He has an even more magnificent claim in the composition and realisation of those frescos with which, from 1509, he adorned the Stanze and the Loggia at the Vatican. The sublime, which Michelangelo attained by his ardour and passion, Raphael attained by the sovereign balance of intelligence and sensibility. One of his masterpieces, The School of Athens, was created by genius: the multiple detail, the portrait heads, the suppleness of gesture, the ease of composition, the life circulating everywhere within the light are his most admirable and identifiable traits.
