This book, a new translation (with introduction and notes) of Il Libro dell'Arte, marks a great step forward in our understanding of Cennino Cennini - his life and times - and the materials and techniques employed by artists in fourteenth century Italy. Over eighty years ago, D. V. Thompson presented his translation entitled The Craftsman's Handbook as a workshop manual aimed at readers who wished to produce a work of art by following Cennino's instructions. The present volume not only establishes more precisely what Cennino actually wrote, by correcting more than 400 errors in Thompson's text, but also includes the transcribed Italian text and very extensive notes on both the language and the technical descriptions. In addition, the author's most informative introduction places Cennino in context and accounts for the genesis of the libro dell'arte by reference to the society in which it was produced. This volume is a landmark text for students and professionals in the field of art history. Contents: Foreword; Acknowledgements; Introduction; Why a new translation?; Who was Cennino Cennini?; What is the Libro dell'arte?; The transmission and translation of the Libro dell'arte; Notes on the transcription; Notes on the translation; Il libro dell'arte: English translation and commentary and Italian transcription; Notes on substantive differences from Thompson's translation; Appendix; Bibliography.

Im wechselseitigen Gefüge von Original und Kopie setzt das vorliegende Buch den Schwerpunkt auf die Kopie: Von der mittelalterlichen Abschrift bis zur autorisierten Kultbildkopie, von der Kopienpraxis der fürstlichen Sammlungen bis zur Reproduktionsfotografie wird die vielfältig artikulierte Gerichtetheit von Kopien auf ihr Vorbild in den Fokus genommen und auf ihre spezifischen ästhetischen wie medialen Eigenschaften hin befragt. Jenseits gängiger Innovationsimperative untersuchen die Beiträge die künstlerische Wiederholung auf die ihr eigenen Qualitäten hin und lenken den Blick auf ihre spezifischen Formen, Absichten und Kontexte. Dabei erweist sich die Treue der Kopie als produktive Kategorie – auch wenn oder gerade weil die treue Kopie im Kern „nichts Neues schaffen" will.

A gloriously illustrated examination of the origins and development of the nude as an artistic subject in Renaissance Europe Reflecting an era when Europe looked to both the classical past and a global future, this volume explores the emergence and acceptance of the nude as an artistic subject. It engages with the numerous and complex connotations of the human body in more than 250 artworks by the greatest masters of the Renaissance. Paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, and book illustrations reveal private, sometimes shocking, preoccupations as well as surprising public beliefs—the Age of Humanism from an entirely new perspective. This book presents works by Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, and Martin Schongauer in the north and Donatello, Raphael, and Giorgione in the south; it also introduces names that deserve to be known better. A publication this rich in scholarship could only be produced by a variety of expert scholars; the sixteen contributors are preeminent in their fields and wide-ranging in their knowledge and curiosity. The structure of the volume—essays alternating with shorter texts on individual artworks—permits studies both broad and granular. From the religious to the magical and the poetic to the erotic, encompassing male and female, infancy, youth, and old age, The Renaissance Nude examines in a profound way what it is to be human.

This volume is a lavishly illustrated invitation to contemplate the intricacy of religious paintings charting the course of Tuscan painting after Giotto. Around 1400, Cennino Cennini in his Libro dell'Arte defined the art of painting as a product of imagination and craft, a text that gave rise to an exhibition focusing on the tradition of painting through the generations from Giotto, his pupil Taddeo Gaddi, the son of the latter, Agnolo, and finally Cennini himself. The catalogue also contains numerous essays on Cennini's book and his opinion on art-related matters, as well as on technological analyses of the paintings themselves. German text.

In 1350, the Italian humanist and poet Francesco Petrarca decided to form a collection of all his correspondence. The letters deal with multifarious topics, switch between narration and instruction, the personal and the general, and are addressed to various of his learned friends and contemporaries. Theyconstitute a treasure trove for the history of ideas. This is the first complete German-language edition of the famous 24 books of the Epistolae familiares; they have been translated from the Latin by Prof. Berthe Widmer, an acknowledged authority on Petrarch. The translation is accompanied by a detailed commentary on the texts, giving factual information on aspects which are largely unknown today, for example on persons, authors and places mentioned. Access to the letters is further facilitated by an annotated index of the addressees and an overview of the contents of the letters. A detailed introduction locates the letters in the context of Petrarch's complete works and his age. The letters represent a most important document in the history of literature and are of inestimable value for all literary scholars and historiansas well as forhistorians of philosophy.
