The contributors engage with a complex aspect of the first 500 years of the history of the book and reveal a relatively little studied aspect of visual cultur. amiliar material re-presented in innovative context. shgate's 'Reinterpreting classicism' series, of which this book is one, is exactly the kind of project which the Warburg Institute was established to undertake. Reinterpreting Classicism: Culture, Reaction and Appropriation. This series provides a forum for the interdisciplinary study of classicism in the arts and architecture in the Western World from the Renaissance to the present day, investigating its complex nature and development, the selection and use of ancient sources, its cultural, political or ideological role, and its relation to other existing traditions and styles.

Italian art of the period provides here a case study for the history of illustration from the 16th to the 20th century. The essayists consider illustrated texts on the art of Leonardo, Vasari, Serlio, Palladio, Teti and Andrea Pozzo and address issues seldom before covered. Each book illustration is carefully repositioned as a vehicle for ideas rather than as a transparent, passive visual form, dependent on its accompanying texts.

Italian Renaissance art is the main focus for this anthology of essays which analyse key episodes in the history of illustration from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The authors raise new issues about the imagery in books on the visual arts by Leonardo da Vinci, Giorgio Vasari, Sebastiano Serlio, Andrea Palladio, Girolamo Teti and Andrea Pozzo. The concluding essays evaluate the roles of reproductive media, including photography, in Victorian and twentieth-century art books.

Book DescriptionWhereas the past decades have seen a profound reconsideration of eighteenth-century visual culture, the architecture of that century has undergone little evaluation. Its study, unlike that of the early modern period or the twentieth century, has continued to use essentially the same methods and ideas over the last fifty years

The Rise of the Image reveals how illustrations have come to play a primary part in books on art and architecture. Italian Renaissance art is the main focus for this anthology of essays which analyse key episodes in the history of illustration from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The authors raise new issues about the imagery in books on the visual arts by Leonardo da Vinci, Giorgio Vasari, Sebastiano Serlio, Andrea Palladio, Girolamo Teti and Andrea Pozzo. The concluding essays evaluate the roles of reproductive media, including photography, in Victorian and twentieth-century art books. Throughout, images in books are considered as vehicles for ideas rather than as transparent, passive visual forms, dependent on their accompanying texts. Thus The Rise of the Image enriches our understanding of the role of prints in books on art.
