Giorgione’s paintings are just as mysterious as the Venetian artist himself, whom very little is known about. It is believed that he may have created fewer than 25 works, with only six surviving paintings officially attributed to him. For many, the elusive nature of his work only adds to the appeal.
In this book, art historian Tom Nichols argues the case for Giorgione’s visual elusiveness; examining paintings such as The Tempest and Three Philosophers, which seem almost to deliberately avoid interpretation as to their meaning.
Nichols suggests that the ambiguity in ‘big George’s’ art is its most defining quality. Through detailed discussions of the artist’s entire works, this book shows the ways that Giorgione abandoned the more intellectual tendencies of Renaissance art and painted the world as an inscrutable place.
