Author: Ambers, Janet ; Catherine Higgitt ; David Saunders (eds)
Price: Not Available
Description: London: Archetype, 2010. 28cm., pbk., 174pp., 164 illus. Summary: The drawings discussed in this book, published in association with the British Museum, were all included in the exhibition, Fra Angelico to Leonardo: Italian Renaissance Drawings, which is taking place in the Round Reading Room at the British Museum from 22 April to 25 July 2010. This is a collaborative project with the Gabinetto Disegno e Stampe degli Uffizi and the same selection of drawings will be shown in Florence in autumn 2010. While making extensive use of these existing studies, many of which are cited in the chapters that follow, in this publication great emphasis is placed on how the results from examination and analysis can go beyond determining simply the materials used but to draw conclusions about the reason and manner of their use and the patterns of use across fifteenth-century Italy. Includes: Hugo Chapman "Introduction," Catherine Higgitt "3 Drawings in the Renaissance Workshop," J. Bescoby, J. Rayner "Supports and preparations," G. Verri, J. Ambers "Revealing stratigraphy," J. Bescoby, J. Judith Rayner "Function and collecting of drawings: visual evidence," etc.
