Who was this artist who portrays human weakness with such accuracy and compassion? Giorgione, the lost hero of Renaissance art, died at just 32…. His paintings seem to foresee his own cruel fate. They are perfumed with melancholy, enraptured by the fragility of human beings.

ROYAL ACADEMY PUBLICATIONS

In the Age of Giorgione

Contributions by Simone Facchinetti.

Attributed to Giorgione. <i>Portrait of a Young Man 
and His Servant</i>. Oil on canvas, 80 × 67.5 cm. Reproduced from <i>In the Age of Giorgione</i>, Royal Academy of Art.Venice in the early 16th century was Europe s undisputed capital of culture: home to some of the finest artists of the Italian Renaissance whose importance stretched far beyond the region. The first great painter to emerge was also the most mysterious. Little is known about Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco, known as Giorgione (c. 1477 1510), and few works have been attributed to him with certainty, yet he painted what is considered the first landscape in Western art history and his influence was profoundly felt by contemporaries including Lorenzo Lotto, Palma il Vecchio, Sebastiano del Piombo, and Titian. This sumptuous volume brings together many of the works attributed to Giorgione, along with other masterpieces of the Venetian school, demonstrating the extraordinary richness of color and mood for which these artists were famed. Published to accompany a major exhibition, this book brings to life an extraordinary moment in art history.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Arts Journal

Paul Levy

Gorgeous catalogue by Simone Facchinetti and Arturo Galansino.

The Guardian

Laura Cumming

Superb, brilliantly presented with drama, sympathy, mounting surprises and the kind of deep scholarship that doesn’t just document art but actually loves it. It is in every respect exemplary.
