Venice And Drawing 1500-1800 : Theory, Practice And Collecting (HB)

Venice And Drawing 1500-1800 : Theory, Practice And Collecting (HB)


This book explores the importance of drawing in Venice, from the time of Titian and Tintoretto to that of Canaletto and Tiepolo. It traces the role of drawing in Venice and its importance over three centuries, while highlighting the interactions and tensions between a developing literary discourse and the practices of making and collecting graphic art.

The enlightening new research by Catherine Whistler seeks to prove that it was an integral part of artistic life in Venice from the Renaissance to the age of the Grand Tour. This book encompasses every aspect of drawings, from the variety of purposes to techniques and much more. Beautifully illustrated with striking drawings and though-provoking arguments, she provides a revealing insight into the motivations that inspired them to create thoughtful yet visceral works of art on paper.
