Full Product Description
These visual narratives are notable for their naturalistic treatment and the emphasis on expressive gestures to show human emotions, both of which were significant new developments in Italian art. This book accompanies an exhibition at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts featuring works of art from the collections of major American museums and libraries and of the Vatican. It is the first major study to examine the art of these rival religious orders together, exploring the ways in which they used art as propaganda to promote the charisma of their saints and to articulate their revolutionary concept of religious vocation. The essayists provide new insights into the significant contributions made by the Dominicans and the Franciscans to the artistic Renaissance in Italy during the period 1200 to 1550
