Francesco Vanni: Art in Late Renaissance Siena

Regular price £38.95
'The handsome catalogue not only illuminates the works exhibited, but serves as an accessible monograph on the artist, illustrating most, if not all, of Vanni's altarpieces in colour.' Burlington Magazin


This is the catalogue accompanying an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Yale University in 2013 to 2014. Francesco Vanni (1563-1610) was a prominent and successful artist in Siena at the end of the sixteenth century. He painted altarpieces for every significant church in Siena, as well as for Saint Peter's and other churches in Rome.

The catalogue examines more than 80 paintings, drawings, and prints, including the Madonna della Pappa, one of Vanni's masterpieces, acquired by the Yale University Art Gallery in 2003. Also included within Francesco Vanni: Art in Late Renaissance Siena is an essay by John Marciari investigating Vanni's career, including his connections with patrons and his adaptation of traditional subject matter to serve the Counter-Reformation and an essay exploring Vanni's use of prints to disseminate his prints.  The book concludes with a selected bibliography and a comprehensive index.
