Historical and Philosophical Issues in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage
Paperback      ISBN: 0892363983
This is the first comprehensive collection of texts on the conservation of art and architecture to be published in the English language. Designed for students of art history as well as conservation, the book consists of forty-five texts, some never before translated into English and many originally published only in obscure or foreign journals. The thirty major art historians and scholars represented raise questions such as when to restore, what to preserve, and how to maintain aesthetic character. Readings come from the work of such writers as Ruskin, Berenson, Clive Bell, Cesare Brandi, Kenneth Clark, Erwin Panofsky, E.H. Gombrich, Marie Cl. Berducou, and Paul Philippot. The fully illustrated book also contains references, a glossary of terms, and an index.

The Rule of Art: Literature and Painting in the Renaissance
The Rule of Art
Literature and Painting in the Renaissance
Hardcover      ISBN: 0226360520
What do Renaissance poetry and painting have in common? What are the social, ideological, and aesthetic bases for the links between them? And what role do those links play in creating the humanistic culture that still has power over us today? These are the questions Clark Hulse takes up in this sophisticated interdisciplinary study of Renaissance aesthetics. Proposing an archeology of artistic knowledge, Hulse examines the theoretical language through which the poets, painters, and patrons of the Renaissance conceived of the relationship between the arts. That language is embedded in what he calls a "rule of art," a specific set of categories, assumptions, and practices that defined the two art forms and the relationship between them. Hulse charts the rise of both forms to the status of liberal arts requiring special intellectual training for artist and patron alike. In the process, he uncovers the history of the practice of theory in the Renaissance, revealing how artistic discourse lived in the world.
