SR Set: The Woodcut
CDR-1360
Title: SR Set: The Woodcut
Description: The woodcut, that most elemental of print forms, arose in northern Europe around 1400 with the new availability of paper. The earliest prints were generally of a devotional nature and rapidly became popular, largely because of their affordability, in contrast to costly illuminated manuscripts. Early masters such as Dürer and Holbein took the woodcut to great heights, but it was quickly obscured by other print forms of engraving, etching, lithography, etc. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw a resurgence of the woodcut with artists like Gauguin and Munch exploring new techniques and aesthetics in an old medium, to be continued by the Die Brücke artists who saw the expressive power of brutal knife lines and gouges in a block of wood. Artists continue to explore the possibilities of the woodcut into the twenty-first century. 6/2015

SR Set: Venetian Painting
CDR-1352
Title: SR Set: Venetian Painting
Description: The Quattrocento Bellini family of Jacopo and his sons Gentile and Giovanni, as well as his son-in-law Andrea Mantegna, are the acknowledged foundation of the Venetian School of painting. They synthesized new ideas drawn from various sources, i.e. the use of perspective; enriched color using oils and glazes; attention to lighting and atmospheric shading. Titian and Giorgione, students of the Bellinis, moved the Venetian style into the High Renaissance where the baton of poetic Venetian style, lush color, and atmospheric haze was carried on into Mannerism with works by Tintoretto, and into the Baroque with Canaletto. 5/2015

SR Set: Landscape Vignettes in Northern Renaissance Painting
CDR-1344
Title: SR Set: Landscape Vignettes in Northern Renaissance Painting
Description: These 'pictures within pictures' are minute views of the landscape often literally seen through the window of an iconographic-studded interior or over the shoulder of a foreground figure à la Robert Campin or Rogier van der Weyden. Even a scrap of landscape provides a glimpse into spatial depth, drawing the viewer's attention into the real world beyond, and an admiration for the minute detail of the Northern Renaissance sensibility. Within the century, landscape painting itself would become the subject, while the titular scene would become insignificant, as seen in the work of Joachim Patinir. Dec/2014
