RETHINKING RENAISSANCE DRAWINGS: ESSAYS IN HONOUR OF DAVID MCTAVISH. Ed. by Una Roman D'Elia. McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 2015. 416 pp. with 154 ills. (126 col.). 26 x 22 cm. ISBN 9780773546363 In English.
Publisher's description: 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.
