Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Pignatti, author of a celebrated 1969 monograph on Giorgione, works with the most up-to-date scholarship from the monograph by Jaynie Anderson (Giorgione: Painter of Poetic Brevity, Abbeville, 1997) to provide a fine overview of the Venetian Renaissance artist. Pignatti's book is a more traditional monograph, with one general essay on the artist and catalog entries on each work, while Anderson's book diverges into essays on different themes. Her essays on 16th-century Venetian patronage and Giorgione's women give a fresher, more original perspective on this artist, but the reproductions in Pignatti's volume are more sumptuous and textured. Attributions to Giorgione have stirred some controversy, and Pignatti puts forth his own choices. For the most part, he agrees with Anderson except for early, small landscapes, which he accepts as Giorgione's, and the Louvre's "F?te Champetre," which he believes to be an early painting by Titian. Recommended for all art libraries and academic or public libraries with collections on art.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Fernando Gandara on July 4, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Gives an individual insight to every painitng in the Giorgione's opera. Abundance of great quality page-size colored pictures, a variety of comparison painting studies with other contemporary venitian artists such as Giovanni Bellini, Sebastiano del Piombo, Titian and others. The book is written clearly and tries to explore many possible angles to reconstruct the history of the enigmatic artist.
