Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is the first comprehensive survey of aristocratic art collecting and patronage in Elizabethan England, as seen through the activities of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (ca. 1532--1588). One of the most fascinating and controversial people of his day, Leicester was also the most important patron of painters at the Elizabethan court. He amassed a substantial art collection, including commissioned works by Nicholas Hilliard, Paolo Veronese, and Federico Zuccaro; helped foster the birth of an English vernacular discourse on the visual arts; and was an early exponent, in England, of the Italian Renaissance view of the painter as the practitioner of a liberal art and, thus, fit company for the educated and well-born. Although Leicester s picture collection and personal papers were widely dispersed after his death, this volume s pioneering research reconstructs his lost world and, with it, a turning point in the history of British art. Some of the paintings featured here are little-known images from private collections, never before reproduced in color. N° de réf. du libraire AAH9780300192247

Synopsis : This book is the first comprehensive survey of aristocratic art collecting and patronage in Elizabethan England, as seen through the activities of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (ca. 1532--1588). One of the most fascinating and controversial people of his day, Leicester was also the most important patron of painters at the Elizabethan court. He amassed a substantial art collection, including commissioned works by Nicholas Hilliard, Paolo Veronese, and Federico Zuccaro; helped foster the birth of an English vernacular discourse on the visual arts; and was an early exponent, in England, of the Italian Renaissance view of the painter as the practitioner of a liberal art and, thus, fit company for the educated and well-born. Although Leicester's picture collection and personal papers were widely dispersed after his death, this volume's pioneering research reconstructs his lost world and, with it, a turning point in the history of British art. Some of the paintings featured here are little-known images from private collections, never before reproduced in color.

Critique: 'This beautifully produced study of the patronage of Elizabeth I's favourite is published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. It's a specialist work that sets his collecting and architectural patronage in the context of Dudley's remarkable career.'-John Goodall, Country Life -- John Goodall Country Life 'A landmark publication, which will become essential reading for anyone interested in the collecting of art at the Elizabethan, Jacobean and Caroline courts ... Congratulations are due not only to the author herself but also to Yale University Press for producing such a handsome, lavishly-illustrated publication. This impressive and beautifully presented book, in short, deserves to reach the widest possible readership.' - Robert Hill, Journal of the History of Collections -- Robert Hill Journal of the History of Collections 'Elizabeth Goldring's fascinating study restores courtier Robert Dudley's reputation as an important patron, collector and cultural pundit. With its pioneering archival research and its lavish illustrations - many of previously unpublished images - this book will appeal to scholars of Elizabethan culture and interested amateurs alike.' - Katie Campbell, Cassone: The International Online Magazine of Art and Art Books -- Katie Campbell Cassone
