Description: Münster: Rhema, 2010. 24cm., pbk., 43pp., 166 illus. German text. Summary: The study presented here focuses on the typology of the Roman wall tombs of the High Renaissance. The historical development and form of the High Renaissance tomb is examined before the foil of the sepulchral art of the quattrocento, which was still strongly influenced by Florentine art. The study is based around the first three decades of the 16th century when the specific typology of the wall tomb – framed by two decisive dates, the beginning of the tomb of Julius II in 1505 and the Sacco di Roma in 1527 – developed. Since this is a period of sculptural activity in Rome that has not been extensively researched, the central monuments of the relevant decades are dealt with monographically. It was possible to set their genesis from the first draft to the completion of their production in relation to the overriding questions of those who commissioned them, the biography and social standing of the deceased as well as the respective stylistic and iconographic solutions. The monuments of the following decades, which are briefly considered, show some variations, but in the central elements of the wall structuring and iconographic programme they correspond largely to the pioneering achievements of the first decades.
