9780674049529: The Early Renaissance and Vernacular Culture (The Bernard Berenson Lectures on the Italian Renaissance Delivered at Villa I Tatti)

Why do the paintings and poetry of the Italian Renaissance―a celebration of classical antiquity―also depict the Florentine countryside populated with figures dressed in contemporary silk robes and fleur-de-lys crowns? Upending conventional interpretations of this well-studied period, Charles Dempsey argues that a fusion of classical form with contemporary content, once seen as the paradox of the Renaissance, can be better understood as its defining characteristic.

Dempsey describes how Renaissance artists deftly incorporated secular and popular culture into their creations, just as they interwove classical and religious influences. Inspired by the love lyrics of Parisian troubadours, Simone Martini altered his fresco Maestà in 1321 to reflect a court culture that prized terrestrial beauty. As a result the Maestà scandalously revealed, for the first time in Italian painting, a glimpse of the Madonna’s golden locks. Modeled on an ancient statue, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus went much further, featuring fashionable beauty ideals of long flowing blonde hair, ivory skin, rosy cheeks, and perfectly arched eyebrows. In the only complete reconstruction of Feo Belcari’s twelve Sybilline Octaves, Dempsey shows how this poet, patronized by the Medici family, was also indebted to contemporary dramatic modes. Popularizing biblical scenes by mixing the familiar with the exotic, players took the stage outfitted in taffeta tunics and fanciful hats, and one staging even featured a papier maché replica of Jonah’s Whale. As Dempsey’s thorough study illuminates, Renaissance poets and artists did not simply reproduce classical aesthetics but reimagined them in vernacular idioms.

About the Author:

Charles Dempsey is Emeritus Professor of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art at Johns Hopkins University.

Review:

From clues like the blond hair of Simone's Maestà madonna to the filigree gold embroidery of female costume to contemporary theater, Dempsey demonstrates how the familiar penetrated the fictive and gave broad legibility. The narratives of these images―so alive in the oral culture of the period―also humanize the classical, so that, as Dempsey explains, sibyls participate in the popular religious theater of the time, along with demonstrating the knowledge and creative imagination of the authors who retrieve and invent their histories from classical antiquity. (J. T. Paoletti Choice 2012-08-01)
