Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This abundantly illustrated, full-color volume provides an overview of the topic of music, musical instruments, and musical performance throughout the centuries, as depicted in Western works of art ranging from ancient sculpture to Renaissance paintings to modern art. It serves as a handy guide for anyone desiring a comprehensive, yet succinct, answer--a first source for the scholar, university student, or educated layperson. It features sections devoted to individual instruments and sections focused on more general concepts, such as musical symbols and allegories and the instruments used in religious contexts. A fascinating musical, historical, and art-historical narrative accompanies the full-color works by artists including Anthony van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch, Gustav Klimt, Francisco Goya, Marc Chagall, Man Ray, and many more. The appendix contains lists of subjects and of artists and includes a glossary.

Book News Annotation:

For general readers, Ausoni (Academy of Fine Arts, Turin, Italy) provides a guide to representations of music, musical instruments, and performances in many sculptures, paintings, and other works of art. Each chapter focuses on a theme--symbols and allegories, mythological and religious subjects, musical performance, and individual instruments--and shows several color images of works relating to that theme by artists such as Van Dyck, Bosch, Klimt, Chagall, Kandinsky, Manet, and Man Ray, with descriptions providing historical and musical context, and captions pointing to important aspects in each work.
