Summary: Addressing the philosophical problem of 'difference' in art history, Tintoretto's Difference offers a new reading of this pioneering 16th century painter, drawing upon the work of the 20th century philosopher Gilles Deleuze. With a focus on Deleuze's important concept of the diagram, Tintoretto's Difference invests the artist's practice in a critical study of art history's methods, concepts and modes of thought, and some of the fundamental dimensions of its scholarly practice: context, tradition, influence, and fact. Bringing together philosophical, art historical, art theoretical and art historiographical analysis, this book investigates the potentials of the diagrammatic for art historical thinking across the registers of semiotics, aesthetics, and time. Tintoretto's Difference offers at once an innovative study of this seminal artist, an elaboration of Deleuze's philosophy of the diagram, and a new avenue for a philosophical art history.
