Art, Politics and Civic Religion in Central Italy, 1261-1352

£17.99

Product description

Condition: used very good++. Small (<1cm) closed tear and shelf wear to dj. Essays include illustrations - b/w photos, plans, footnotes and bibliography. Based on original research these generously illustrated studies introduce new material and advance new arguments, the clear and lively presentation ensuring that they are accessible to students and scholars from other disciplines. First volume in the Courtauld Research Papers series published by Ashgate.

Introduced by Joanna Cannon and Beth Williamson, this volume of essays by postgraduate students at the Courtauld Institute, University of London, explores some of the ways in which art was used to express, to celebrate, and to promote the political and religious aims and aspirations of those in power in the city states of central Italy in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The contributions focus on four centres: Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Orvieto, and range over a number of media: fresco, panel painting, sculpture, metalwork, and translucent enamel. Employing a variety of methods and approaches, these stimulating essays offer a fresh look at some of the key artistic projects of the period. By concentrating on individual cases the essays provide rewardingly sustained consideration, at the same time raising crucial issues concerning the role of art in the public life of the period.
