Jacob Burckhardt (1818-1897) was one of the first great historians of culture and art. In his manuscript on the genres of Italian Renaissance painting-still unpublished in the original German and published here in English for the first time-Burckhardt assayed a transformative approach to the study of art history. Rather than undertaking a biographical or a chronological reading of artistic development, Burckhardt chose to read the source materials and extant works of the Italian Renaissance synchronically, by genre. Probably written between 1885 and 1893, this manuscript takes up twelve different categories of paintings, ranging from the allegorical to the historical, from the biblical to the mythological, from the glorification of saints to the denunciation of sinners. Maurizio Ghelardi's introductory essay analyzes Burckhardt's innovative treatment of his subject, establishing the importance of this text not only within Burckhardt's oeuvre but also within the continuum of art historical research.

This up-to-date survey of the finest moments in Western painting from Masacio through Michelangelo and Titian covers some fifty artists and their work and includes 450 color illustrations. Beck divides the period into three generations covering over one hundred years. The art is then distinguished between a more lyric or a more monumental vision, thereby giving a framework for the study and appreciation of the complex but rewarding material which has formed the basis of painting ever since. Attention is given to the lives of the artists in addition to their works set in the historical context. The book is accompanied by a bibliography and a glossary as well as an index for easy reference. -- From publisher's description.
