"A deliciously familiar yet seemingly untouchable and magical world, Venice has an unparalleled legacy of monuments, traditions, and culture dating back more than 1600 years. From the fogs that haunt its streets to the sunlight that bathes its churches, the beautiful city of Venice exists in another time. Sumptuously illustrated with over 300 photographs, this is the Venice that guidebooks do not show-the Venice that the people who live there love best. Exploring the history, architecture, art, day-to-day life, and the hidden treasures of this beautiful city, the comprehensive scope of this attractive boxed set is what distinguishes it from others of its kind.

Private Lives In Renaissance Venice

"As the sixteenth century opened, members of the patriciate were increasingly withdrawing from trade, desiring to be seen as "gentlemen in fact" as well as "gentlemen in name." The author considers why this was so and explores such wide-ranging themes as attitudes toward wealth and display, the articulation of family identity, the interplay between the public and the private, and the emergence of characteristically Venetian decorative practices and styles of art and architecture. Brown focuses new light on the visual culture of Venetian women - how they lived within, furnished, and decorated their homes; what spaces were allotted to them; what their roles and domestic tasks were; how they dressed; how they raised their children; and how they entertained. Bringing together both high arts and low, the book examines all aspects of Renaissance material culture."--BOOK JACKET.

Norbert Huse and Wolfgang Wolters provide the first contemporary single-volume survey of the three arts of Venice -- painting, sculpture, and architecture. They offer an important counterbalance to the traditional orientation toward painting as the city's preeminent art by focusing on architecture as the essential Venetian artistic medium. In the process, they define the distinctly Venetian terms by which the city and culture should be understood. Huse and Wolters begin their study with 1460, when Venice was one of the key powers of Italy, and end their discussion with the death of Tintoretto in 1594, a period of waning international power. Wolfgang Wolters outlines the city's development and present a typological survey of Venetian architecture. A review of sculptors and their works follows. Norbert Huse opens the next section, on painting, by describing the changed situation of painters at the end of the fifteenth century. He explores the different forms and functions of Venetian paintings in three distinct periods. With over three hundred illustrations and an exhaustive bibliography, this volume successfully fills a gap in art historical scholarship. -- From publisher's description.

Venice, CA, is a portrait of a free-spirited community. Established on the shores of the Pacific a century ago, it has been transformed by successive generations of architects and artists. Best known for its rambunctious boardwalk and sandy beach, the true Venice is hidden behind enigmatic facades. In contrast to much of L.A.'s Westside, where size and show are prized, the community has retained its tight-knit, modestly scaled character, which has challenged architects to find inventive ways of building on narrow, confined lots, and to achieve a balance of openness and privacy. This book focuses on nearly forty extraordinary spaces and the innovators, collectors, and eccentrics who have created fascinating private worlds. From the 1980s when Frank Gehry, Frederick Fisher, and Morphosis first responded to Venice's gritty character, artists such as John Altoon, Billy Al Bengston, and Ed Moses have been drawn here by cheap loft space, ocean breezes, and a feeling of camaraderie. From the homes of Dennis Hopper, Steven Ehrlich, and Philippe Starck to the studios of Ed Ruscha, Chuck Arnoldi, and John Baldessari, Venice, CA, offers readers access into one of the world's most vibrant and distinctive communities.

Architecture Art And Identity In Venice And Its Territories 1450 750

Cities are shaped as much by a repertoire of buildings, works and objects, as by cultural institutions, ideas and interactions between forms and practices entangled in identity formations. This is particularly true when seen through a city as forceful and splendid as Venice. The essays in this volume investigate these connections between art and identity, through discussions of patronage, space and the dissemination of architectural models and knowledge in Venice, its territories and beyond. They celebrate Professor Deborah Howard?s leading role in fostering a historically grounded and interdisciplinary approach to the art and architecture of Venice. Based on an examination and re-interpretation of a wide range of archival material and primary sources, the contributing authors approach the notion of identity in its many guises: as self-representation, as strong sub-currents of spatial strategies, as visual and semantic discourses, and as political and imperial aspirations. Employing interdisciplinary modes of interpretation, these studies offer ground-breaking analyses of canonical sites and works of art, diverse groups of patrons, as well as the life and oeuvre of leading architects such as Jacopo Sansovino and Andrea Palladio. In so doing, they link together citizens and nobles, past and present, the real and the symbolic, space and sound, religion and power, the city and its parts, Venice and the Stato da Mar, the Serenissima and the Sublime Port.

Arguing that Santi Cosma e Damiano was a reform convent, the author of this interdisciplinary study explores how its nuns employed art and architecture as a means to actively express their specific religious concerns. While focusing on the reconstruction of the history and construction of the convent, this study's larger concern is with the religious reform movement, and with the convent as a space for female self-realization in early modern Venice.

"A comprehensive and richly illustrated survey of Venetian Renaissance architecture, sculpture, and painting created between 1400 and 1600 addressed to students, travellers, and the general public. The works of art are analysed within Venice's cultural circumstances--political, economic, intellectual, and religious--and in terms of function, style, iconography, patronage, classical sources, gender, art theories, and artist's innovations, rivalries, and social status. The text has been divided into two parts--the fifteenth century and the sixteenth century--each part preceded by an introduction that recounts the history of Venice to 1500 and to 1600 respectively, including the city's founding, ideology, territorial expansion, social classes, governmental structure, economy, and religion. The twenty-six chapters have been organized to lead readers systematically through the major artistic developments within the three principal categories of art--governmental, ecclesiastic, and domestic--and have been arranged sequentially as follows: civic architecture and urbanism, churches, church decoration (ducal tombs and altarpieces), refectories and refectory decoration (section two only), confraternities (architecture and decoration), palaces, palace decoration (devotional works, portraits, secular painting, and halls of state), villas, and villa decoration. The conclusion offers an overview of the major types of Venetian art and architectural patronage and their funding sources"--Provided by publisher.

This is the second book in the three volume survey.

Art and architecture have always been central to Venice but in the Renaissance period, between c.1440 and 1600, they reached a kind of apotheosis when many of the city's new buildings, sculpture, and paintings took on distinctive and original qualities. The spread of Renaissance values provided leading artists such as Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Palladio, Titian, and Tintoretto with a licence for artistic invention. This inventiveness however also needs to be understood in relation to the artists and artworks that still conformed to the more traditional, corporate, and public values of "Venetianness"' (Venezianità). By adopting a chronological approach, with each chapter covering a successive twenty-five year period, and focusing attention on the artists, Tom Nichols presents a vivid and easily navigable study of Venetian Renaissance art. Through close visual analyses of specific works from architecture to illuminated manuscripts, he puts the formative power of art back at the heart of this remarkable story.
