Die Klassischen Götter Auf Abwegen : Launige Götterbilder in Den Italienischen Und Nordalpinen
about this item
The textual and pictorial reception of classical myths in the early modern period reflected a range of different interpretive patterns and visual traditions, and evoked a counter-reaction in the form of novel comic adaptations of myth. For the first time, the study puts these “witty” images of the Gods in Italian and Northern Alpine visual arts in a broader motivational context within the discourse of literary and art theory.
