Un viaggio iniziatico nel Rinascimento italiano. L’esercizio della curiosità vi porterà ad alzare lo sguardo per guardar lontano, abbracciando i complessi intrecci della storia, e a veder vicino, direttamente dentro le immagini. “Questo non sarà mai un libro di Storia dell’Arte, con le due auliche maiuscole, non assomiglia a uno di quei tomi scolastici che hanno forse lasciato tedio e sonnolenza sui banchi di scuola, ma è piuttosto un viaggio esoterico nelle storie dell’arte.” Forte della sua esperienza di autore e conduttore televisivo, Philippe Daverio non è mai banalmente divulgativo, non intende semplificare fenomeni complessi, ma affronta le vicende degli artisti, delle opere e dei committenti secondo un metodo d’indagine che è diventato la sua cifra personale: sa guardare da lontano o accostarsi per vedere da vicino. Ogni suo nuovo libro è un’avventura che apre nuove prospettive. Il “metodo Daverio” è applicato in questo caso al Rinascimento. Il periodo fondativo della cultura e dell’arte italiana acquista così nuova freschezza e vivacità, prende le mosse dalla pittura di Giotto, “un fulmine nella storia dell’arte”, e si conclude con quel “talentaccio e caratteraccio” di Caravaggio, attraversando la curiosità anarchica di Leonardo, i cagnolini di Tiziano, l’eccentrica sensualità di Parmigianino e i sussulti religiosi di Michelangelo. L’allontanamento dalle categorie canoniche della storia dell’arte e la pratica dello spostamento del punto di vista si rivelano in particolare nelle Daveriologie, pagine nelle quali la curiosità impertinente dell’autore affronta nuove strade di lettura, attraverso accostamenti insoliti, a volte audaci, di capolavori e artisti lontani nel tempo e nello spazio.

L’arte della prima metà del Novecento è un vorticoso susseguirsi di movimenti e “ismi”. Il secolo breve, racchiuso fra l’illuminazione elettrica del cielo di Parigi dall’alto della Tour Eiffel per l’expo del 1889 e il lampo devastante del fungo atomico a Hiroshima, ha forgiato il nostro immaginario. Da qui Philippe Daverio parte per creare un affresco fatto di assonanze e migrazioni, incontri reali e fantastici tra opere e artisti: Klimt, Balla, Kandinskij, Picasso... Un libro-mondo guidato dall’irresistibile libertà del pensiero folle.

'Thirst for information, faith in commerce and industry, inventiveness and technical daring, energy and tenacity, and a tendency to mix up religion with visible success - all these qualities have to be remembered as one embarks on a conducted tour of some of the exhibits of 1851.' The Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace was opened by Queen Victoria and would attract more than six million visitors. Writing one hundred years later, Nikolaus Pevsner makes a brilliant survey of what the Exhibition - 'the final flourish of a century of great commercial expansion' - offered to posterity as the hallmarks of High Victorian Design; also as windows into the mentality of mid-nineteenth-century England.

Nicholas Fox Weber, for thirty-three years head of the Albers Foundation, spent many years with Anni and Josef Albers, the only husband-and-wife artistic pair at the Bauhaus (she was a textile artist; he a professor and an artist, in glass, metal, wood, and photography). The Alberses told him their own stories and described life at the Bauhaus with their fellow artists and teachers, Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well these figures’ lesser-known wives and girlfriends. In this extraordinary group biography, Weber brilliantly brings to life the Bauhaus geniuses and the community of the pioneering art school in Germany’s Weimar and Dessau in the 1920s and early 1930s. Here are: Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus, the architect who streamlined design early in his career and who saw the school as a place for designers to collaborate in an ideal setting . . . a dashing hussar, the ardent young lover of the renowned femme fatale Alma Mahler, beginning when she was the wife of composer Gustav Mahler . . . Paul Klee, the onlooker, smoking his pipe, observing Bauhaus dances as well as his colleagues’ lectures from the back of the room . . . the cook who invented recipes and threw together his limited ingredients with the same spontaneity, sense of proportion, and fascination that underscored his paintings . . . Wassily Kandinsky, the Russian-born pioneer of abstract painting, guarding a secret tragedy one could never have guessed from his lively paintings, in which he used bold colors not just for their visual vibrancy, but for their “sound” effects . . . Josef Albers, who entered the Bauhaus as a student in 1920 and was one of the seven remaining faculty members when the school was closed by the Gestapo in 1933 . . . Annelise Else Frieda Fleischmann, a Berlin heiress, an intrepid young woman, who later, as Anni Albers, made art the focal point of her existence . . . Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, imperious, decisive, often harsh, an architect who became director—the last—of the Bauhaus, and the person who guided the school’s final days after SS storm troopers raided the premises. Weber captures the life, spirit, and flair with which these geniuses lived, as well as their consuming goal of making art and architecture. A portrait infused with their fulsome embrace of life, their gift for laughter, and the powerful force of their individual artistic personalities. From the Hardcover edition.

This new translation brings to English-speaking readers an intense and brooding work by the greatest poet of the Italian Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto. Begun as a sequel to his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso (1516), the unfinished Cinque Canti are a powerful poem in their own right. Tragic in tone,they depict the disintegration of the chivalric world of Charlemagne and his knights and give poetic expression to a sense of cultural, political, and religious crisis felt in Ariosto's Italy and in early sixteenth-century Europe more generally. David Quint's introduction freshly examines the literary sources and models of the Cinque Canti and discusses the cultural contexts and historical occasions of the poem. Printed with facing Italian text, this volume allows the modern reader to experience a work of Renaissance literature whose savage beauty still has the power to chill and fascinate.

From the intriguing mind behind "Codex Seraphinianus" comes this beautifully illustrated tribute to the famed Neapolitan character Pulcinella (or "Punch" as he is referred to in English). "Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana" contains over one hundred extraordinary graphite illustrations with scarlet accents, some of which are depicted in comic-strip style. Conceived as a musical "Suite, "it is" "divided into nine scenes with an intermission. It features the oddly surreal and globally recognized character, whose origins have been lost in the mists of the time. An ancestor of Pulcinella was certainly Maccus, the protagonist of the "Atellanae" "Fabulae," very popular farces in ancient Rome, but it was in the early seventeenth-century that the character assumed the name and costume that we all know. Distinguished by a long nose and typically dressed in white with a black mask, Pulcinella is often depicted in various kinds of misadventures and singing about love, hunger, and money. As he famously did in the "Codex," Luigi Serafini, has created "Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana" in a unique language all its own, and has filled it with fascinating and mysterious illustrations that will no doubt prompt devotees to obsessively try to decipher the artist s intention. Written by Serafini s imaginative coauthor and alter ego "P. Cetrulo," who represents Pulcinella himself, the book artfully presents the struggles of a rebellious antihero who must come to grips with the challenges of everyday life. Originally, a book about Pulcinella and his world appeared in 1984, after Serafini s involvement with the 1982 Carnival of Venice, the first revival of the famous festivity after two centuries of silence. Now more than three decades later, this new edition has been extensively revised and includes a new afterword by the author. Like its predecessor, the original edition became immensely sought after and highly valuable, fetching more than one thousand dollars if book collectors were lucky enough to get their hands on a copy. All fans of Serafini s work will treasure this volume. Rizzoli will also publish a deluxe limited edition with a signed and numbered print."
