Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dosso Dossi has long been considered one of Renaissance Italy's most intriguing artists. A wealth of documents chronicle his life, but because very little of his work has survived, he remains an enigma and his art continues to be as elusive as it is compelling. In this collection, leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines examine the social, intellectual, and historical contexts of his art, focusing on the development of new genres of painting, questions of style and chronology, the influence of courtly culture, and the work of his collaborators, as well as his visual and literary sources and his painting techniques.

Book News Annotation:

Dossi (1490-1542), one of Renaissance Italy's most intriguing artists, remains an enigma for a variety of reasons. This volume comprises 18 essays evolving from two symposia titled "Dosso Dossi and His Age," held in 1996 and 1997, in anticipation of the 1998-1999 exhibition of his works. They examine the social, intellectual, and historical contexts of his art, focusing on the development of new genres of painting, questions of style and chronology, the influence of courtly culture, and the work of his collaborators, as well as his visual and literary sources and his painting technique.
