Sienese Renaissance Tomb Monuments, Volume 205
The first scholarly study to treat the sepulchral memorials of Quattrocento Siena in a comprehensive way. These works include contributions by such noted sculptors as Jacopo della Quercia, Il Vecchietta, Neroccio de'Landi, Giovanni di Stefano, & Urbano da Cortona, as well as a number of monuments by assorted anonymous followers of Donatello. Some of these works, most notably Quercia's tomb for Ilaria del Carretto, occupy well-recognized places in the history of Italian sculpture. But various others, many of significant artistic importance as well as sociological interest, are presented here for the first time. In addition to a thorough catalogue of all traceable figured memorials from Renaissance Siena & its artistic dependecies, Prof. Robert Munman takes up such problems as the formal devt. of several sepulchral types produced there, the cultural & historical context of such tombs in general, & the attitudes of patronage that, given Siena's rich artistic resources, produced fewer of these monuments than one would have expected.
