Il Giardino dell'Anima: Ascesi e Propaganda nelle Tebaidi Fiorentine del Quattrocento
Malquori, Alessandra. 2012. Il Giardino dell'Anima: Ascesi e Propaganda nelle Tebaidi Fiorentine del Quattrocento. Vol. 23. Firenze: Centro Di, 23, 255.Abstract
Le Tebaidi sono pitture murali e dipinti su tavola che conobbero una singolare fortuna nel Tre e nel Quattrocento. Si tratta di raffigurazioni in cui monaci, santi e asceti si muovono in un paesaggio dalle caratteristiche ricorrenti - un fiume cho lo attraversa e una variopinta e rigogliosa vegetazione. La nascita di tale iconografia e le ragioni della sua fortuna e diffusione sono materia di questo saggio, molto dettagliato e ricco di informazioni e riferimenti, corredato da numerose illustrazioni e da un'esauriente bibliografia.

The Tudor court sought to express its worldliness and political clout through major artistic commissions, employing Florentine sculptors and painters to create lavish new interiors, suitable for entertaining foreign dignitaries, for its royal palaces. These were exemplified by Henry VIII's palace of Nonsuch, so named because no other palace could match its magnificence. Italian sculpture, painting, and tapestries of the day reflected an interest in portraiture and dynastic monuments, epitomized in England by the royal tomb projects created by Baccio Bandinelli, Benedetto da Rovezzano, and Pietro Torrigiani. Generously illustrated throughout, The Anglo-Florentine Renaissance traces the artistic links between Medicean Florence and Tudor England through essays by an international team of scholars and explores how the language of Florentine art effectively expressed England's political aspirations and rose to prominence as a new international courtly style"--Provided by publisher.
