The controversy of Renaissance art

Alexander Nagel

Many studies have shown that images - their presence in the daily lives of the faithful, the means used to control them, and their adaptation to secular uses - were at the heart of the Reformation crisis in northern Europe. But the question as it affects the art of Italy has been raised only in highly specialized studies. In this book, Alexander Nagel provides the first truly synthetic study of the controversies over religious images that pervaded Italian life both before and parallel to the Reformation north of the Alps. Tracing the intertwined relationship of artistic innovation and archaism, as well as the new pressures placed on the artistic media in the midst of key developments in religious iconography, "The Controversy of Renaissance Art" offers an important and original history of humanist thought and artistic experimentation from one of our most acclaimed historians of art.
