Traditionally founded by its namesake Romulus in 753 BC, Rome began modestly, as a little village of thatched huts on the Palatine Hill. By the third century BC, it controlled the entire Italian peninsula, and by the first century BC, much of the known world. RomeGÇÖs fortunes have stumbled more than once since thenGÇöindeed, there have famously been times when cows grazed on the ForumGÇöbut it has always reemerged as a leading city, thanks to its status as the seat of Christendom. Through the centuries, artists from all over Europe have been drawn to Rome, both to work in the service of the Church and to learn from the accumulated masterpieces.This luxuriously oversized book uses RomeGÇÖs artistic riches to chronicle the eventful history of the city itself. We are shown the customs and beliefs of the ancient Romans through their own frescoes and mosaics, and their greatest deeds in the history paintings of later masters such as Poussin and David. We follow the fitful rise of Rome, which eventually blossoms forth into the supreme achievements of Michelangelo and Raphael. With eyes uplifted to frescoed vaults, we watch the great decorators of the Baroque add to the cityGÇÖs store of monuments, which are then deftlyGÇöand sometimes quite imaginativelyGÇörecorded by the vedutisti of the eighteenth century. Finally, in canvases by a surprising range of nineteenth- and twentieth-century artistsGÇöfrom Sargent to de Chirico, and even de KooningGÇöwe see Rome in its role as the capital of a unified Italy, and of the modern Western imagination.With its more than three hundred full-color illustrations, including four spectacular gatefolds; its insightful text, written by leading art historians; and its valuable apparatus, including capsule biographies of 175 artists; The History of Rome in Painting is an important achievement in scholarship and publishing and a fitting tribute to the Eternal City. Like its predecessors The History of Venice in Painting and The History of Paris in Painting, it belongs in every art loverGÇÖs library.

"An impressive, hefty volume offers page after page of full-color art. In a red cloth slipcase, the oversized book is quite the gift." Fine Books & Collections

"Opening this book is a sensuous experience, and a window onto multiple scenes both glorious and gory the tone throughout is scholarly without being dry. It's surprising the pages don't smell of pigment A more comprehensive, accessible, and lavishly presented collection would be difficult to find." ForeWord Reviews

Descrizione libro Abbeville Press August 2011, 2011. Hardcover. Condizione: New. From its ancient status as the jewel of an empire to its modern incarnation as a troubled, yet culturally vibrant European capital, Rome has compelled the imagination of artists for over two thousand years. Now, in 'The History of Rome in Painting', that entire span is brought to life through the visions of the greatest painters of the past millennium. As two previous Abbeville volumes, 'The History of Paris in Painting' and 'The History of Venice in Painting', did for their respective cities, 'Rome' provides the most luxurious possible visual presentation of one of the world's most beautiful places. Editors Maria Teresa Caracciolo and Roselyne de Ayala, with the help of six other expert contributors, guide the reader through the colorful and tumultuous history of the Eternal City, from its humble origins as a village on the Palatine Hill to the cultural explosion of the Renaissance, from its reinvention as the capital of modern Italy to the watershed of the Lateran Treaty and beyond. Here you will find portraits of the city's most famous and controversial leaders-from Julius Caesar to Mussolini - as well as its long succession of popes and aristocratic families. Depicted also, in brilliant detail, are the city's architectural and sculptural landmarks: Saint Peter's Basilica, Trajan's Column, the Fontana di Trevi, and many more. Featuring over 294 full-color illustrations and three stunning 8-page foldouts, showcasing the work of artists from Giotto and Michelangelo to the Italian Futurists and Picasso, 'The History of Rome in Painting' is a true feast for art lovers, travelers, and historians alike. In art history as in the ancient Empire, all roads lead to Rome; here in one volume is the city as generations of painters have sought it, dreamed it, and captured it for all time.
