IL PAESAGGIO SECONDO NATURA: JACOB PHILIPP HACKERT E LA SUA CERCHIA (The Landscape after Nature: Jacob Philipp Hackert and His Circle). Ed. by Paolo Chiarini. Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome, 1994. Organized by Comune di Roma, Assessorato alla Cultura et al. Published by Artemide Edizioni, Rome. 368 pp. with 227 ills. (59 col.). 34 x 24 cm. LC 95-140753 ISBN 8886291086 In Italian.
A detailed examination of Hackert's long career in Italy and his singular role in the history of late 18th-century landscape painting, this substantial catalogue presents illustrations and individual analyses of 49 paintings and drawings and 42 prints by the once-celebrated German artist (1737-1807) while also documenting some 80 etchings by Wilhelm Friedrich Gmelin, Francois Morel and other printmakers who produced images after Hackert's works. Augmented by two previously unpublished letters to Goethe in which the painter outlines the principles informing his meticulously rendered landscapes, six scholarly essays discuss the simultaneously realistic and idealized features of Hackert's images, his impact on Italian landscape painting, his years in Rome and Naples, and his patronage by the Russian court.
