Studi su Raffaello

A selection of contributions on Raffaello by John Shearman, the great Bristish art historian who recently died, who is universally acknowledged as one of the most sound and sharp scholars of Italian Renaissance

This book collects a selection of contributions on Raffaello by John Shearman, the great Bristish art historian who recently died, who is universally acknowledged as one of the most sound and sharp scholars of Italian Renaissance and of Sanzio in particular.
The collection, which fills a gap in the Italian editorial world, includes articles and essays of great relevance on this topic, appeared in different books and reviews between 1959 and 1986 and never translated into Italian: through an exemplary methodological approach, joining the analysis of the artist’s creative process with the study of sketches and the incisive reconstruction of figurative culture, the author examines some of the most renowned works (among which the frescoes of the Stanze, the decorations of Loggia di Psiche, and many famous portraits), and the principle aspects of Raffaello’s activity (as, for instance, the organization of his atelier, his clients, his relationship with his patrons, and the literature)
