Castiglione: Lost Genius

Description

In this 176 page book, featuring 138 stunning colour images, leading Castiglione scholar Timothy J. Standring and Martin Clayton, Head of Prints and Drawings at Royal Collection Trust, restore to prominence this forgotten master of the Italian Baroque. Drawing from extensive new research into court records and other documents on the artist, their narrative brings to light a truly temperamental artistic personality, and focuses on Castiglione's working methods; a blurring of the boundaries of painting and drawing which appeals greatly to our modernist preference for the unfinished work and the creative act. Standring and Clayton position Castiglione as one of the most original artists of the entire seventeenth century.

27 x 28.5 cm.

Hardback.
