This book brings to life the story of the construction of some of the most outstanding early Renaissance buildings in Venice. Through a series of individual case studies, Richard J. Goy explores how and why great buildings came to be built. He addresses the practical issues of constructing such buildings as the Torre dell’Orologio in Piazza San Marco, the Arsenale Gate, and the churches of Santa Maria della Carita and San Zaccaria, focusing particular attention on the process of patronage. The book is the first to trace the complete process of creating important buildings, from the earliest conception in the minds of the patrons - the Venetian state or other institutional patrons - through the choice of architect, the employment of craftsmen, and the selection of materials. In an interesting analysis of the participants’ roles, Goy highlights the emerging importance of the superintending master, the protomaestro.

Private Lives in Renaissance Venice

"As the sixteenth century opened, members of the patriciate were increasingly withdrawing from trade, desiring to be seen as "gentlemen in fact" as well as "gentlemen in name." The author considers why this was so and explores such wide-ranging themes as attitudes toward wealth and display, the articulation of family identity, the interplay between the public and the private, and the emergence of characteristically Venetian decorative practices and styles of art and architecture. Brown focuses new light on the visual culture of Venetian women - how they lived within, furnished, and decorated their homes; what spaces were allotted to them; what their roles and domestic tasks were; how they dressed; how they raised their children; and how they entertained. Bringing together both high arts and low, the book examines all aspects of Renaissance material culture."--BOOK JACKET.

Venedig war im Laufe seiner Geschichte viel mehr als die Stadt der Träume und des Todes, als die es heute bekannt ist. Lange Zeit war es ein Staat mit einer einzigartigen republikanischen Verfassung, für die es überall in Europa bewundert wurde. Auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Entfaltung gehörten zu diesem Staat große Gebiete Oberitaliens, Inseln in der Adria und der Ägäis, aber auch die großen Mittelmeerinseln Zypern und Kreta. Der Handel hatte Venedig reich und bedeutend gemacht, und die regen Beziehungen zum Orient spiegelten sich auch in der venezianischen Kunst und Architektur, die der Stadt bis heute ihren fremden Reiz verleihen. Arne Karsten bietet in diesem Band einen glänzenden Überblick über die Geschichte der Stadt und des Staates Venedig.

Cities are shaped as much by a repertoire of buildings, works and objects, as by cultural institutions, ideas and interactions between forms and practices entangled in identity formations. This is particularly true when seen through a city as forceful and splendid as Venice. The essays in this volume investigate these connections between art and identity, through discussions of patronage, space and the dissemination of architectural models and knowledge in Venice, its territories and beyond. They celebrate Professor Deborah Howard?s leading role in fostering a historically grounded and interdisciplinary approach to the art and architecture of Venice. Based on an examination and re-interpretation of a wide range of archival material and primary sources, the contributing authors approach the notion of identity in its many guises: as self-representation, as strong sub-currents of spatial strategies, as visual and semantic discourses, and as political and imperial aspirations. Employing interdisciplinary modes of interpretation, these studies offer ground-breaking analyses of canonical sites and works of art, diverse groups of patrons, as well as the life and oeuvre of leading architects such as Jacopo Sansovino and Andrea Palladio. In so doing, they link together citizens and nobles, past and present, the real and the symbolic, space and sound, religion and power, the city and its parts, Venice and the Stato da Mar, the Serenissima and the Sublime Port.

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.

Italian Architecture of the 16th Century is the last published work of the legendary Colin Rowe, the fruit of his four-year collaboration with Leon Satkowski, a Rowe student and author of Giorgio Vasari: Architect and Courtier. The book is a testament to the buildings, architects, and artists Rowe most deeply appreciated. For the millions of travelers who flock to Italy to see the art and architecture of the 16th century-subjects that captured Rowe's heart and challenged his fertile mind-this book is at once a pleasurable read and the pinnacle in scholarship. It is written in Rowe's unmatched and engaging personal style, and it is beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, and paintings of the art and architecture that make this period and this place so beloved. The book emphasizes the leading subjects of the 16th -century Reniassance: the architects (Bramante, Vignola), the patrons (Leo X, Cosimo I de Medici), the artists (Michelangelo), and the cities (Rome, Venice, Florence). As the finest critical scholarship on conquecento Italy and an accessible guide for the non-scholar, this book is destined to be regarded as one of Rowe's most important.

Santa Maria della Salute is one of Venice's best known monuments and the masterpiece of its architect, Baldassare Longhena. In this study of the church, Andrew Hopkins provides new documentation and autograph drawings, published here for the first time, that enable an accurate history of the building. As well as presenting important information on the construction of the church, he also provides an analysis of Santa Maria della Salute's function as the site of an annual feast day procession and the impact of ceremonial requirements on the architectural design.
