Rethinking Renaissance Drawings : Essays in Honour of David McTavish (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

About this item

The study of Renaissance drawings allows for an intensive exploration of how artists constructed their works and how they thought, often by revealing the artists’ ideas through the examination of private images that were deemed inappropriate for more public viewing. Rethinking Renaissance Drawings presents new and original research from art historians and curators from leading universities and museums across North America and Europe. Previous studies on drawings tend to focus on the work of one artist or a small regional group of artists. The essays in this collection address larger issues of the forms and functions of drawing in the Renaissance by exploring a variety of perspectives, including discussions of the process of drawing, the often unorthodox imagery of Renaissance drawings, the collecting and copying of Renaissance drawings, and the works of artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Bosch, Parmigianino, Annibale Carracci, Guercino, and Rembrandt. Some of the drawings discussed are exciting new discoveries, published here for the first time, whereas others are familiar works, but shown in a new light. Collectively, these studies offer alternate views of Renaissance art and show more intimate aspects of a period that is often remembered for its paintings and large-scale public monuments. Contributors include David de Witt (Rembrandt House Museum), Stephanie Dickey (Queen's University), Pierre du Prey (Queen's University), David Ekserdjian (University of Leicester), David Franklin (Archive of Modern Conflict), Catherine Monbeig Goguel (Musée du Louvre), Franziska Gottwald (Amsterdam), Sharon Gregory (St Francis Xavier University), Sally Hickson (University of Guelph), Michel Hochmann (École Pratique des Hautes Études), Cathleen Hoeniger (Queen's University), Charles Hope (Warburg Institute), Paul Joannides (Cambridge University), Casey Lee (Queen's University), James Mundy (Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center), Aimee Ng (Frick Collection), Sebastian Schütze (University of Vienna), Allison Sherman (Queen's University), Ron Spronk (Queen's University), Steven Stowell (Concordia University), Nicholas Turner (J. Paul Getty Museum), and Catherine Whistler (The Ashmolean).
