Title: RAFFAEL als Paradigma : Rezeption, Imagination und Kult im 19. Jahrhundert
Author: Hess, Gilbert ; Elena Agazzi ; Elisabeth Decultot (eds)
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9783110255621
Description: Berlin: De Gruyter 2011, . 23cm., hardcover, 390pp., ca. 51 illus. Summary: This book, the second volume of the series Klassizistisch-romantische Kunst(t)räume, follows on directly from issues examined in the first volume. Both Graecomania and the Raphael cult can be viewed as concepts of salvation that are translated into the field of aesthetics and that reference each other complementarily. The adulation of Raphael was a notable feature of 19th-century art criticism and art history as well as of literature and music history. Raphael became a paradigm: he served as a screen onto which not only art-theoretical but also religious and social notions were projected, positing the ideal role and status of the artist and of people in general in his time. (Klassizistisch-romantische Kunst(t)räume, 2. ^Available November 2011^)
