9780789209337: History of Venice in Painting

Venice is a magical city. For centuries, Venice has enchanted visitors with its magnificent architecture and romantic canals. As a lone republic amid mostly monarchical Europe, Venice equally amazed philosophers and poets, leading Wordsworth to hail this floating city of more than one hundred islands as the oldest Child of Liberty.”

Yet it is the imprint Venice left in the realm of painting, not only as a subject that inspired visiting artists from Europe and beyond, but more importantly as the seat of a new school of painting, for which Venice should best be remembered. The Venetian School of painting was developed during the Renaissance, featuring such celebrated painters as Bellini, Mantegna, Giorgione, and Titian. Emphasizing Venice’s pervasive sunlight and glowing color in their works, these painters influenced centuries of painters to come. The authors of The History of Venice in Painting explain how the Venetian School, in addition to other attractions like Carnival, attracted legions of tourists to Venice, making it an obligatory stop on the Grand Tour” that should complete any eighteenth-century gentleman’s cultural education. Visitors also came to Venice to paint the city’s famous light for themselves, most notably J.M.W. Turner and Claude Monet. Sun-soaked Venice, with light reflecting off the waters of its many canals, was indeed an Impressionist’s dream.

This vibrantly illustrated text traces the history of the Republic of Venice through its artistic heritage, from medieval mosaics to twentieth-century Futurist paintings. Including 350 full-color images, as well as 4 breathtaking gatefolds, The History of Venice in Painting is a treasure-trove of art, history, and culture. Here such panoramas as religious processions and gondolas criss-crossing the Grand Canal are displayed in a size befitting the subject’s grandeur. Protected in a silkbound slipcase, this gorgeous tribute captures the history and indelible legacy of Venice.

Review:

Praise for The History of Venice in Painting

— WINNER of the ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award, 2007

"An undeniably handsome volume...The History of Venice in Painting does what a single plane ticket cant do: It allows you to look at paintings world-wide...It tells the story of the city through its art..." — The Wall Street Journal

To multivolume artistic explorations of Florence and Paris Abbeville Press adds a single oversize tome that presents Venice as the inspirer of seven centuries of images, from illuminated manuscripts to the canvases of Oskar Kokoschka. Masterpieces by Titian, Giovanni Bellini, Antonio Canaletto and many, many others either were created in the city or depict aspects of it as the subject. So along with early religious themes are depictions of Venetian buildings, events and customs, showing the city in almost every significant style from the Middle Ages to the early modern period. The result shows the highest production values, featuring even several spectacular four-page foldouts.” — Chicago Tribune

"Here's a book that packs a visual wallop...This book is magnificent...The color plates, many unfolding across two pages (four can be unfurled in splendid foldouts), trace the arc of Venetian history...And it comes encased in a silken slipcase, de rigueur for art book aficionados." — The Washington Post
