Venetian Painting 15th Century (Paperback): Otto Pacht Venetian Painting 15th Century (Paperback)
Otto Pacht
R2,192 Discovery Miles 21 920 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Otto Pacht, one of the most significant art-historians of the 'Vienna School', and well known for his analyses of Early Netherlandish art, turns his attention in this publication to the humanist circle of Early Renaissance painters in Venice, dominated by Jacopo Bellini, his sons Gentile and Giovanni, and also his son-in-law Andrea Mantegna. It was a period of newly awakened interest in the Antique, of studies made directly from nature, and of trial and error in the technique of perspective. And in addition, a new awareness of the role of light and colour in the devotional and often monumental images of the Madonna, of altarpieces and of allegories contributed to the founding of what we now recognise as the hall-mark of Venetian painting, that culminated with Titian. Of the Bellini family, it has been Giovanni who was generally regarded as the major figure of the dynasty. Pacht, however, devotes particular attention to Jacopo's work, interpreting it as the basis for his sons' later development. He analyses Jacopo's London and Paris Sketchbook drawings, demonstrating where Late Gothic elements can be seen to be overtaken by the need to give perspective depth to the image, and how subsequent painting took account of these changes. This is also the essence of Pacht's examination of Mantegna's work, where the construction of space and depth is the key to our understanding of Mantegna's creative process. Turning to the next generation of the Bellini family, Pachts guides our eyes to appreciate the refinement and perception of Gentile's portraits, and finally takes us step by step through the works of Giovanni, where fantasy combines with the play of colour and light in creating compositions, devotional images, and landscape settings of perfect harmony and beauty.

The Practice of Art History - Reflections on Method (Hardcover): Otto Pacht The Practice of Art History - Reflections on Method (Hardcover)
Otto Pacht; Translated by David Britt
R933 Discovery Miles 9 330 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Here, for the first time in English, is Pacht's well-known, fundamental text, Methodisches zur Kunsthistorischen Praxis. Pacht's approach to art history is shaped by his conviction that visual art, like music, can say things in its own medium that cannot be said in any other. He aims to sharpen our perceptions by recreating the social and cultural context in which an object was made, clarifying unfamiliar notions of space and time or significant gestures and symbols which are no longer recognizable. Each part of Pacht's analysis is illustrated by reference to a specific manuscript, painting, building or sculpture, and his examples range from medieval and Renaissance art through to the works of Rembrandt. He explores the theories of major thinkers from Riegl, Wolfflin and Croce to Panofsky and Gombrich. But the emphasis always returns to the activity of looking, and Pacht's greatest achievement is in showing the student and general reader alike how to practise art history in their own encounters with works of art.

Early Netherlandish Painting from Rogier van der Weyden to Gerard David (Hardcover): Otto Pacht Early Netherlandish Painting from Rogier van der Weyden to Gerard David (Hardcover)
Otto Pacht; Volume editing by Monika Rosenauer; Translated by David Britt
R1,422 Discovery Miles 14 220 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Otto Pacht's studies of the Early Netherlandish painters are the fruit of a lifetime's research. Following his book on the brothers Van Eyck and their circle, this volume deals with the next generation of artists, the great figures of the 15th and early 16th century: Rogier van der Weyden, Petrus Christus, Aelbert van Ouwater, Dieric Bouts, Justus van Gent, Hugo van der Goes, Geertgen tot Sint Jans, Hans Memling and Gerard David. In the tradition of the Vienna School, Pacht's approach puts emphasis on formal analysis and on direct contact with the works of art themselves. Taking certain key works by each artist as examples, he discusses every facet of the work including style, mood, iconography, symbolism and construction of space. The chapters are linked by the theme of imitation and continuation: the author compares the same subject as treated by various artists and shows how artists adopted developed ideas and motifs first employed by their predecessors. Although his touchstone was the evidence of his eyes, Pacht was always responsive to the theories of other scholars, and this volume is a gateway to an influential period in the history of art. The proximity of the illustrations to the text enhances his account of the great figures of the period, and there is a folding plate, in colour, of Rogier van de Weyden's Last Judgement alterpiece for the chapel of the hospital, the Hotel-Dieu, in Beaume.
