Through the masterpieces produced by artists ranging from Michelangelo and Leonardo to Rembrandt, Rubens, and Vermeer, Europe’s Renaissance and Baroque period grew into one of the most creative times in world history. A Companion to Renaissance and Baroque Art presents a comprehensive collection of interdisciplinary essays that address major aspects of European visual arts produced from approximately 1300 to 1700, a period of artistic flourishing that many consider the beginning of modern history. These essays, however, transcend the traditional period labels of “Renaissance” and “Baroque” by addressing works from Duccio and Chaucer to Velazquez and Newton as a single continuum, inclusive in terms of both disciplinary and geographical boundaries, as an era best characterized as “early modern.” Featuring original contributions by an international roster of scholars from various disciplines, writings are grouped by concept in five sections that spotlight the varied components and processes that constitute the world of the visual arts and the variety of interpretive methods and ideas that can be, and have been, brought to bear on art objects. Essays explore how art interacts with the cultural paradigms of this explosive time: the interface between art and religion, art and science, and gender and sexuality to name a few. Combining an unprecedented breadth of coverage and depth of scholarship with lucid and accessible writing, A Companion to Renaissance and Baroque Art represents the most comprehensive reference on the study of Renaissance and Baroque visual arts available today.
“An enlightening and enabling companion to the study of Renaissance and Baroque art history from the classic heartland of the discipline to the latest frontiers.” - Joseph Connors, Harvard University “Focusing on the Renaissance and Baroque periods, this collection demonstrates for scholars and students alike where art history has been and where it is going.” - David G. Wilkins, Professor Emeritus of the History of Art and Architecture, University of Pittsburg “The editors have gathered some of the best-known scholars of Renaissance and Baroque art history to create a vibrant picture of contemporary thinking about Early Modern art, in a collection usefully organized by categories of particular interest today.” - Mary D. Garrard, Professor Emerita, American University
