Das Lieblingsbild der Venezianer

"Christus und die Ehebrecherin" in Kirche, Kunst und Staat des 16. Jahrhunderts

Bereits Jacob Burckhardt bezeichnete Christus und die Ehebrecherin als das „venezianische Lieblingssujet“. Er blieb uns jedoch eine Antwort auf die Frage schuldig, woher im 16. Jahrhundert die Neigung der Venezianer für das Thema stammte. Heute sind rund sechzig Gemälde der Adultera aus der Seerepublik erhalten, die auf die große Fülle der dortigen Bildproduktion hinweisen, während uns zur selben Zeit im übrigen Italien das Motiv so gut wie nicht begegnet. Die vorliegende Untersuchung widmet sich diesem Kuriosum und legt unterschiedlichste Gründe dar, weshalb das Sujet in der Serenissima so deutlich favorisiert wurde. Eine Voraussetzung war, dass das Bildthema durch die monumentale Ehebrecherin in der Staatskirche San Marco niemals in Vergessenheit geriet. Denn sie ist keine Neuschöpfung des Seicento, wie bislang angenommen wurde, sondern beruht auf einem mittelalterlichen Vorgängermosaik. Wesentlich für das hohe Aufkommen des Motivs dürfte jedoch seine große Vielseitigkeit gewesen sein, die zahllosen Einsatz- und Interpretationsmöglichkeiten. So konnte Rocco Marconis Ehebrecherin als einzige Dekoration im Kapitelsaal der Mönche von San Giorgio Maggiore eine wichtige Funktion innerhalb des täglich abgehaltenen monastischen Zeremoniells einnehmen. Jacopo Tintoretto formulierte in der Adultera Chigi eine Gnadenauffassung, die kurz darauf von der katholischen Kirche verdammt wurde. Hingegen zeigt Tizians Glasgower Ehebrecherin Aspekte des zeitgenössischen Liebesdiskurses, Nicolò de Barbari wiederum stellte in der aus dem Hause Mocenigo stammenden Tafel Disziplinierungsversuche gegenüber einer Neuvermählten dar. Nicht zuletzt erhielt das Bildthema seine Bedeutung, weil es ebenso Eingang in die Staatsrepräsentation der Serenissima fand. Durch das mildtätige Handeln Jesu an der Sünderin konnte die Adultera auch als szenische Darstellung der clementia, der göttlichen Tugend, gelesen werden. Die ursprünglich in Gerichtssälen platzierten Ehebrecherinnen Jacopo Bassanos und Bonifacio de’ Pitatis eigneten sich ausgezeichnet, den Mythos Venedigs vom buon governo, der besten aller Regierungen, zu befestigen.

Paolo Veronese

Piety and Display in an Age of Religious Reform

Author: Richard Cocke

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1351805738

Category: Art

Page: 256

This title was first published in 2001: Paolo Veronese: Piety and Display in an Age of Religious Reform examines the large body of religious paintings with which Veronese (1528 -1588) played a crucial role in shaping Venetian piety. With 117 illustrations (26 in colour) Richard Cocke sets Veronese’s work into context, arguing his mastery of narrative has long been neglected, largely as a result of Sir Joshua Reynolds's criticism in his Discourses. The new expressiveness of Veronese’s work in his final decade is linked with the decrees of the Council of Trent, which resulted in an enhanced display of paintings in Venetian palaces during the 1570s, matched by the renewed decorative schemes in the city’s churches.

The Art of the Dominican and Franciscan Orders in Renaissance Italy

Italy in the thirteenth century was transformed by two new religious orders, the Dominicans and the Franciscans. Whereas earlier religious orders had secluded themselves in monasteries in the countryside and lived off income from their property, the Dominicans and Franciscans settled in urban centers and lived as mendicants, or beggars, administering to the laity. The founding members of both orders took a vow of poverty, yet soon after their deaths their successors were building churches that rivaled cathedrals in size and splendor throughout Italy. The friars and nuns of these orders created a tremendous demand for works of all kinds - painted altarpieces, crucifixes, fresco cycles, illuminated choir books, and liturgical objects - to decorate their churches. The works they commissioned illustrate the lives of their saints and depict miracles such as Saint Francis preaching to the birds, Saint Dominic dividing a single loaf of bread into enough food to feed many hungry friars, and Saint Clare rescuing a child mauled by a wolf. These visual narratives are notable for their naturalistic treatment and the emphasis on expressive gestures to show human emotions, both of which were significant new developments in Italian art. This book accompanies an exhibition at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts featuring works of art from the collections of major American museums and libraries and of the Vatican. It is the first major study to examine the art of these rival religious orders together, exploring the ways in which they used art as propaganda to promote the charisma of their saints and to articulate their revolutionary concept of religious vocation. The essayists provide new insights into the significant contributions made by the Dominicans and the Franciscans to the artistic Renaissance in Italy during the period 1200 to 1550.

View: 4976

"A comprehensive and richly illustrated survey of Venetian Renaissance architecture, sculpture, and painting created between 1400 and 1600 addressed to students, travellers, and the general public. The works of art are analysed within Venice's cultural circumstances--political, economic, intellectual, and religious--and in terms of function, style, iconography, patronage, classical sources, gender, art theories, and artist's innovations, rivalries, and social status. The text has been divided into two parts--the fifteenth century and the sixteenth century--each part preceded by an introduction that recounts the history of Venice to 1500 and to 1600 respectively, including the city's founding, ideology, territorial expansion, social classes, governmental structure, economy, and religion. The twenty-six chapters have been organized to lead readers systematically through the major artistic developments within the three principal categories of art--governmental, ecclesiastic, and domestic--and have been arranged sequentially as follows: civic architecture and urbanism, churches, church decoration (ducal tombs and altarpieces), refectories and refectory decoration (section two only), confraternities (architecture and decoration), palaces, palace decoration (devotional works, portraits, secular painting, and halls of state), villas, and villa decoration. The conclusion offers an overview of the major types of Venetian art and architectural patronage and their funding sources"--Provided by publisher.

Renaissance Rivals

Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian

"For the great Renaissance masters, the creation of art was not only an intellectual or aesthetic exercise. It was a contest. The artists of sixteenth-century Italy knew each other's work, knew each other's patrons, and knew each other - sometimes as friends and colleagues, sometimes as enemies, but always as rivals. This book views the lives and greatest works of Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, and Titian through the prism of their ardent rivalry. Rona Goffen, one of the most highly respected scholars of the Italian Renaissance today, brings the artists to life in this lively account of their impassioned strivings to outdo both living competitors and the masters of antiquity." "Quoting from poems, letters, treatises, contracts, and other contemporary writings, the author demonstrates the extent to which artists, as well as their patrons and colleagues, characteristically thought about art in the context of rivalry. Renaissance patrons often stipulated in contracts with artists that their commissions be more beautiful than works made for other patrons. The artists themselves competed for commissions. Goffen brings into sharp focus the immediacy, intensity, and complexity of artistic rivalry among the Renaissance masters, recovering for us the emotional and professional circumstances that brought about their magnificent creations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

“The” Ceremonial City

History, Memory and Myth in Renaissance Venice

Author: Ian Fenlon

Publisher: Yale University Press

ISBN: N.A

Category: History

Page: 448

View: 8389

This wide-ranging study vividly presents the major events that took place in Venice in the 1570s, culminating in a deadly outbreak of the plague that claimed one-quarter of the Venetian population. Analyzing reactions to this dramatic decade, Iain Fenlon throws fresh light on the historical machine that produced the distinct civic and cultural ethos of the city and uncovers new aspects of its urban topography, ceremony, and cultural life. At the heart of the book is a detailed account of four historical events: the formation of the Holy League, a coalition that brought the Republic into conflict with the Ottoman Empire; the victory of that League against the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto; the ceremonial welcoming of Henry III of France to the city in 1574; and the devastating plague of 1575–77. The author considers how these events, above all the victory at Lepanto, were reconfigured in the realms of memory and myth, and he describes in detail a religious matrix that provides the key to the civic ethos of the city in this era.
