Artistic Theory in Italy, 1450-1600 by Anthony Blunt

Book Description

This book seeks to broaden the comprehension of the student of Italian Renaissance painting by concentrating not on the works of art themselves, but on the various artistic theories which influenced them or were expressed by them. Taking Alberti's treatises as his starting-point, Anthony Blunt traces the development of artistic theory from Humanism to Mannerism. He discusses the writings of Leonardo, Savonarola, Michelangelo, and Vasari, examines the effect of the Council of Trent on religious art, and chronicles the successful struggle of the painters and sculptors themselves to elevate their status from craftsmen to creative artists.

Anthony Blunt (1907-83) was formerly Professor of Art, University of London; Director of Courtauld Institute of Art (1947-1974); and Adviser for Queen's Pictures and Drawings. In 1965 he confessed to having been a Soviet agent since the 1930s, and when these revelations were made public in 1979, he was stripped of the knighthood he had been awarded in 1956.
