VITTORIA COLONNA: DICHTERIN UND MUSE MICHELANGELOS (Vittoria Colonna: Poet and Muse of Michelangelo). Sylvia Ferino-Pagden et al. Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, 1997.

Accompanying the third in the Museum's series of exhibitions devoted to celebrated women of the Italian Renaissance (see also Worldwide 24503 and 25003), this substantial catalogue documents the career and influence of poet Vittoria Colonna (1490-1547) through a presentation of paintings, drawings, prints, books, letters, medals and other works illuminating her literary achievements, her prominent role in the religious and cultural life of her time, and her close association with Michelangelo. Frequently extensive commentaries on the exhibited works (among them numerous portraits and other paintings by such artists as Titian, Sebastiano del Piombo, Bronzino, Moroni, Lotto and Pontormo) supplement 22 scholarly essays that include examinations of the historical milieux of Colonna's life in Ischia, Rome and Viterbo, her contributions to Cinquecento literature, and her involvement in religious debates of the period as well as detailed investigations of her relationship and correspondence with Michelangelo, sixteen of whose drawings were featured in the show.
