The Sculpted Object, 1400-1700
Stuart Currie, Peta Motture
Scolar Press, Jan 1, 1997 - Art - 250 pages
The Sculpted Object 1400-1700 features twelve essay's which consider a variety of the roles played by sculpture during the Renaissance period and into that of the Baroque. Based on the papers given at the 1995 Association of Art Historians' conference session of the same name, the collection investigates how sculpture was employed by artists of the time, both as an expressive medium in its own right and in relation to other artistic media. Through examination of a broad range of artistic objects, the contributors evoke the varied nature and utilization of sculpture in the period. Their diverse approaches incorporate analysis and interpretation of individual art works, and the assessment of contracts, letters and accounts.
