Edited by Piers Baker-Bates and Elena Calvillo



365 pages



Art and Material Culture in Medieval and Renaissance Europe; Volume 10


Art historians explore Renaissance and baroque paintings on stone and other durable material from the perspectives of Sebastiano del Piombo's invention and its initial influence; ars et natura: the poetics and collecting of paintings on stone; and other materials, metaphors, and inventions. Among the topics are painted stone: idea and practice in the Italian Renaissance, the matter of similitude: stone paintings and the limits of representation in Cavaliere d'Arpino's Perseus and Andromeda and Jacques Stella's Jacob's Dream, glances into stone: Hans von Aachen's paintings on stone, micromosaic materiality and transubstantiation in an icon of Christ at Santa Croce in Gerusalmemme in Rome, and Salvator Rosa: a variety of surfaces. The 10 papers are from a 2013 conference in San Diego and a May 2016 conference in Rome. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
