Myth, Allegory, Faith

Featuring selections from the massive Kirk Edward Long Collection of 16th-century prints, Myth, Allegory, Faith illuminates the development of the Mannerist style in Italy, tracing its dissemination and adaptation for both secular and religious purposes and following its eventual transformation into the Baroque style at the end of the century. The volume includes works which reveal the sources of Mannerist prints in the artifacts of ancient Rome and the innovations of Raphael and Michelangelo; other works help trace the style’s spread and transformation from Rome and Florence to the rest of Europe, shifting slightly in Fontainebleu, Antwerp, Haarlem and Prague. Featuring some 140 engravings, etchings, woodcuts and chiaroscuro woodcuts by such renowned artists as Federico Barocci, Parmigianino, Hendrick Goltzius and Annibale Carracci, and by such famous printmakers as Marcantonio Raimondi, Giorgio Ghisi and Cornelis Cort, this publication of devotional images, mythological narratives, portraits and landscapes is the most comprehensive resource on Mannerist printmaking to date. Hardcover, 704 pages.
