Compelling Visuality by Claire Farago

Book Description

Explores what we actually see, touch, and experience when looking at art. Typically, art history is an enterprise of recovery--of searching out the provenance, the original intentions, the physical setting, and historical conditions behind a work of art. The essays in Compelling Visuality address some of the "other" questions that are less frequently asked--and, in doing so, show how much is to be learned and gained by going beyond the traditional approaches of art history. In particular, the contributors take up the commonly unexplored question of what is actually present in a work of art--what we see, touch, and experience when confronted with Renaissance or Baroque works that have survived the vicissitudes of time. International and interdisciplinary, this volume conducts readers into an ongoing discussion of the value and significance of personal response to works of art.

Art is Not What You Think it is by Claire Farago Art is Not What You Think it is, Hardback (February 2012)

Art Is Not What You Think It Is presents a thought-provoking manifesto by two leading art historians which reconsiders current discussions on the idea of art, and offers new and challenging insights into its uses, meanings, and its very nature.

Reframing the Renaissance by Claire Farago Reframing the Renaissance, Hardback (October 1995)

In this study, Renaissance art historians re-evaluate the Eurocentrism of Italian Renaissance art history by envisioning how the history of Renaissance art would look if cultural interaction and the conditions of reception became the primary focus.
