9780789211033: The History of Rome in Painting

A sumptuously illustrated history of Rome, the Eternal City the capital of Italy and world art as captured by painters from the Antiquity through the twentieth century, in one luxurious hardcover volume with slipcase.

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.

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. It 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. Like its predecessors The History of Venice in Painting and The History of Paris in Painting, it belongs in every art lover’s library.

THE GATHERING PLACE OF EUROPE: THE XVII CENTURY

by Luciano Arcangeli

By the start of the seventeenth century, the transformation of Rome into the artistic epicenter of Italy was a fait accompli. Florence and Venice, which taught the continent the visual language of the Renaissance, had lost much of their dynamism. The Italian cities that now began to manifest the most artistic vitality and originality were Genoa, Bologna, and Naples, but such was the potential for fame and success in Rome that few artists, whether Italian or foreign, felt they could do without a sojourn in the eternal city, which would test their abilities through exposure to its fierce artistic competition.
In its capacity as an international cultural capital, then, seventeenth-century Rome was analogous to nineteenth-century Paris or postwar New York. In addition to welcoming formal experiment and fostering artistic dialogue, the city offered countless opportunities to study the past, functioning as a theater on whose stage gifted artists could interact with each other sometimes stormily under the eye of tradition. Quarrels between artistic factions assumed an unprecedented importance. As mentioned with regard to the previous century, Rome seemed about to explode”; it was home to a dazzling array of artistic personalities who would revolutionize western art. Moreover, during the century’s early years the city’s dominant class changed in significant ways, developing a taste for artistic innovation that would favor the city’s emergence as a preeminent artistic center. From this time forward, the throne of Saint Peter was occupied not by representatives of the venerable warrior aristocracy of Rome and Latium but by those of families based in other parts of Italy notably Tuscany and Emilia who were eager to exploit the considerable power of the office, and who were much more inclined than their Roman predecessors to foster emerging trends, protect artists, and enrich their personal collections.

It was this transformed Rome that received an artist destined to revolutionize European painting: Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. The realism of his vases of flowers and bowls of fruit, rendered with an unprecedented immediacy, and the naturalism of his young models, disarming in their sexual ambiguity, soon caught the eye of the city’s most cultivated collectors, from Cardinal del Monte to the all-powerful Scipione Borghese, nephew of the future Pope Paul V. But it was Caravaggio’s entry into the prestigious and exclusive sphere of religious painting that produced the equivalent of an explosion in the Roman art world. The works that he painted between 1597 and 1600 for his first sacred commission, destined for the Contarelli Chapel in San Luigi dei Francesi, swept away conventions that had governed the treatment of religious subjects for centuries, with results that persuasively situated the core truth of the Christian message in the poverty, beauty, and brutality of everyday life. The light, too, in Caravaggio’s canvases is unlike that of Renaissance works; emanating from well-defined sources, it scarcely suffices to illuminate the small rooms depicted, yet strikes the figures inside them with real force. It is the light of truth and revelation, exposing nothing less than the dramatic reality of existence.
