THE TRAVELING ARTIST IN THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE: GEOGRAPHY, MOBILITY AND STYLE. David Young Kim. Yale University Press, New Haven, 2014. 304 pp. with 170 ills. (66 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 2014-930820 ISBN 9780300198676 In English.
Publisher's description: In this important and revelatory book, David Young Kim examines how mobility and travel affected the identities and artistic styles of artists such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Lotto, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian. It is well known that Italian Renaissance artists traveled; this book considers the cultural and historical contexts of their voyages. Kim establishes connections between artists' travel and responses to their work in early modern literature, with critical analysis of 16th-century written culture. Relevant themes in Giorgio Vasari's monumental Lives of the Artists are explored in depth. Through new readings of critical ideas, prejudices, and entire biographies in Renaissance art literature, Kim makes a groundbreaking case for the circuitous development of the artists' individual styles, offering a complex understanding of how the concepts of mobility and identity were changing in a shifting and widening world.
