Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wilton Diptych is a comprehensive account of one of Englandandrsquo;s greatest surviving medieval treasures, now in the collection of The National Gallery, London. The painting depicts King Richard II (1367andndash;1400) being presented to the Virgin Mary and Christ by John the Baptist and two English Kings, revered as saints. The brilliant color and lavish use of gold give it the appearance of a luxury object, yet its primary function was religious, as an altarpiece for the kingandrsquo;s private devotions.

and#160;

The author analyzes the iconography, historical context, style, materials, and techniques used to create this precious work, and discusses the likely identity of the artist and the possible evidence that this picture was known to and referenced by William Shakespeare in his play Richard II. Further study of the intricate detail, varied techniques, and decorative effects shows connections to French metalwork and manuscript illumination, while newly commissioned photography and infrared imaging reveal hidden underdrawings.and#160;

Synopsis:

The authors take a look at a variety of types of painting by artists such as Holbein, Raphael, Titian and Bronzino providing insight into the meanings of individual pictures and their purpose as they explore the materials, procedures, practices and the social position of the artist of the 1500s.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive account of one of Englandandrsquo;s greatest medieval treasures draws on recent research into this beautiful, enigmatic 14th-century painting and includes newly commissioned photography. and#160;

Description:
