9780500238974: Medieval Modern: Art out of Time

Rich collisions and fresh perspectives illuminate the profound continuities of thought and practice that have marked Western art through the ages

This groundbreaking study offers a radical new reading of art since the Middle Ages. Moving across the familiar period lines set out in conventional histories, Alexander Nagel explores the deep connections between modern and premodern art to reveal the underlying patterns and ideas traversing centuries of artistic practice.

In a series of episodic chapters, he reconsiders from an innovative double perspective a number of key issues in the history of art, from iconoclasm and idolatry to installation and the museum as institution. He shows how the central tenets of modernism – serial production, site-specificity, collage, the readymade, and the questioning of the nature of art and authorship – were all features of earlier times before modernity, revived by recent generations.

Nagel examines, among other things, the importance of medieval cathedrals to the 1920s Bauhaus movement, the parallels between Renaissance altarpieces and modern preoccupations with surface and structure; the relevance of Byzantine models to Minimalist artists; the affinities between ancient holy sites and early earthworks; and the similarities between the sacred relic and the modern readymade. Alongside the work of leading 20th-century medievalist writes such as Walter Benjamin, Marshall McLuhan, Leo Steinberg, and Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, Robert Smithson, and Damien Hirst.

The effect of these encounters goes in two directions at once: each age offers new insights into the other, deepening our understanding of both past and present, and providing a new set of reference points that reframe the history of art itself.

About the Author:

Alexander Nagel is Professor Fine Arts at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. He lectures and writes widely on Renaissance and modern art, both for academic journals and art magazines such as Cabinet, ARTNews and Artforum. His books include Michelangelo and the Reform of Art winner of the 2002 Gordan Prize for Renaissance Studies, Anachronic Renaissance (co-authored with Christopher Wood) and The Controversy of Renaissance Art, winner of the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award.

Review:

“Alexander Nagel, one of the luminaries of Renaissance art history . . . set[s] out to provide a theoretical framework . . . to link the old and the new.”
- Artforum

“Both erudite and imaginative, Nagel's study challenges conventional wisdom and erects new frames of reference for understanding critical developments in art history.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Nagel argues the fascinating thesis that medieval and modern art should be considered in concert to better understand the latter. This lengthy scholarly work discusses structural analogies between medieval and modern art, for example, discussing both eras' emphasis on the placement of art in specific real-world sites, as well as on surfaces and the art object itself. . . . Provides a readable argument and offers wide-ranging examples.”
- Library Journal

“Nagel presents a readable, compelling, original thesis and a creative methodological model for future art historical scholarship. . . . Highly recommended.”
- Choice

“Nagel boldly forges and uncovers intellectual and formal relationships between . . . art objects and practices from the medieval and modern eras.”
- The Marginalia Review of Books

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This groundbreaking study explores the deep connections between modern and premodern art, offering a radical reading that reveals the underlying patterns and ideas traversing centuries of artistic practice. Nagel reconsiders from an innovative double perspective some key issues in the history of art, from iconoclasm and illusionism to the status of painting, installation, and the museum as institution. He examines, among other topics, why the medieval workshop was of such importance to the Bauhaus; how the 4th-century Jerusalem Chapel in Rome was a proto-earthwork akin to the projects of Robert Smithson; and the relationship between medieval relics and Duchamps readymades. Alongside an analysis of 20th-century medievalist theorists such as Brecht, Joyce and Eco, Nagel considers a wide range of celebrated artists. This is a radical new reading of art that will profoundly broaden our understanding of both premodern practices and the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780500238974
