Tintoretto and Architecture
(1000 items available)
There is no overstating the long shadow of influence that Jacopo Tintoretto has exerted on Western art. However, there has never been a comprehensive examination of his influence on architecture. On the occasion of the 500th year of his birth, this title draws on the most up-to-date writings on Tintoretto's work and on the history of Renaissance architecture to present a picture of the connection between the space painted in his pictures and the physical space in which they are located.This volume includes reproductions of Tintoretto's works in comparison with reproductions of the works of painter and architect contemporaries such as Paolo Veronese, Raphael, Giorgio Vasari and Andrea Palladio. In addition, "Tintoretto and Architecture" draws on emerging technology to present digitally rendered 3-D models of the architecture the figures in Tintoretto's paintings inhabit underlining the emphasis the Venetian master placed on space and structure. The authors submit such masterworks as "The Finding of the Body of St. Mark" to this innovative treatment, offering new perspectives on well-loved works.
