Frame Work: Honour and Ornament in Italian Renaissance Art
In Frame Work: Honour and Ornament in Italian Renaissance, Alison Wright discusses the importance of frames and framing devices during the era and examines the innovations introduced by the likes of Donatello, Bellini and Fouquet.
This insightful study of paintings, sculpture and manuscript illumination within their diverse social settings argues that frames are central to Renaissance images and the notion of independent artwork. Relating the significance of reframing, and the impact it has on a work of art, to the present day, Wright considers how the frame is related to beauty, display, and can even be a mechanism of control.
