  • 12/18/17--05:47: Carlo Crivelli - part 1
  • Carlo Crivelli was probably born in Venice during the early 1430s. Both his father, Jacopo, and his brother, Vittore, were painters. Carlo is mentioned only once in Venetian documents: in 1457, already a master painter, he was fined and sentenced to six months in prison for abducting a sailor's wife.

    Though trained in the late Gothic style of Antonio Vivarini, as his earliest works show, and familiar with the drawings of Jacopo Bellini, from which some of his mature compositions derive, Crivelli was profoundly influenced by early Renaissance art in Padua. There he studied works by Donatello, Fra Filippo Lippi, and the young Andrea Mantegna. He also probably joined the workshop of Francesco Squarcione sometime during the apprenticeship of the Dalmatian painter Giorgio Ciulinovich, called Schiavone, who arrived in 1456 and returned to Zara about 1461. So similar are the two young painters that Crivelli is presumed to have worked with Schiavone in Padua and followed him to Zara, where Crivelli was a resident and citizen by 1465.

    By 1468, when he signed and dated an altarpiece in Massa Fermana, Crivelli had moved to the Marches, where an economic resurgence attracted trans-Adriatic immigration. After first living in Fermo, he became a resident of Ascoli Piceno by 1478. Crivelli flourished in this provincial area, where his allegiance to the elaborate compartmentalized polyptych and his superb skill with tempera and gold leaf appealed to the conservative taste of his patrons, and where he was free to develop his unique interpretation of Gothic and Renaissance themes without having to compete with the new Venetian style of Giovanni Bellini. Crivelli may have visited Ferrara about 1470, but from the mid-1470s, when his style had matured, through the 1480s, he resisted outside influences. In his late works, however, he drew inspiration from the altarpiece that Giovanni Bellini painted for Pesaro in the 1470s, and adopted the unified space of the new Renaissance type of altarpiece. The expressive figure style and brilliant, rich colors that distinguish Crivelli's art are remarkably consistent. His success spawned local imitators, including his brother Vittore, who was active in Fermo from 1481. Carlo was ultimately rewarded with a knighthood by Prince Ferdinand of Capua in 1490. He died in Ascoli in 1495.

    1470 Porto San Giorgio altarpiece:
    Monumental altarpieces with multiple images (polytychs) were a staple of Cruvelli's painting practice. The Porto San Giorgio altarpiece stood over the high altar of the parish church in the Adriatic coastal town of Porto San Giorgio for over four hundred years.
    Following demolition of the church in 1803, the altarpiece was sawn apart and its paintings dispersed to collections in Europe and the United States. Isabella Stewart Gardner purchased "Saint George in 1897, bringing the first Crivelli to America. The six surviving panels are assembled in the reconstruction below.

  • 12/20/17--05:55: Carlo Crivelli - part 2
  • Carlo Crivelli was probably born in Venice during the early 1430s. Both his father, Jacopo, and his brother, Vittore, were painters. Carlo is mentioned only once in Venetian documents: in 1457, already a master painter, he was fined and sentenced to six months in prison for abducting a sailor's wife.

    Though trained in the late Gothic style of Antonio Vivarini, as his earliest works show, and familiar with the drawings of Jacopo Bellini, from which some of his mature compositions derive, Crivelli was profoundly influenced by early Renaissance art in Padua.

    For full biographical notes, and for earlier works, see part 1 also.

    This is part 2 of a 3-part post on the works of Carlo Crivelli:


    1473 Polyptych of St Emidio Cattedrale di Sant'Emidio, Ascoli Piceno.

    The Sant’Emidio Polyptych is exactly in the same place where it was first put in 1473. It was commissioned to the Venetian painter Carlo Crivelli (ca. 1430 – ca. 1490) by the bishop of Ascoli Piceno, Prospero Caffarelli, and was placed in Sant’Emidio cathedral – never to be moved.

    The painting – tempera and gold on panel, its central panel reading “Opus Karoli Crivelli Veneti 1473” – was originally placed in the chapel of the Holy Sacrament. It is a rare example of well-preserved pictorial art from the 1400s. Even more extraordinary is the fact that it is still in the same building after centuries.

    The polyptych is about 290×280 centimetres, divided into three rows:

    1476 The Demidoff Altarpiece:


    This altarpiece was painted by Crivelli in 1476 to sit on the high altar of the church of San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno, in east central Italy. The polyptych was composed of the central panel and eight smaller panels with saints. Originally there was a predella (a lower section of the altarpiece ), now lost, and a lunette-shaped Pietà above (now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.)

    This work came to the Pinacoteca from the Church of San Domenico in 1811 after Napoleon's spoliations.
    While transferring it, the original frame, which probably contained other scenes, was lost. Two of those scenes, the Announcing Angel and the Virgin Annunciate, also came to the Pinacoteca but were exchanged for other paintings. Two parts of the predella, however remained at the Pinacoteca.

  • 12/27/17--05:44: Alphabet Books – part 1
  • Alphabet Books are primarily designed for children. They show the letters of the alphabet with corresponding words and images. They are one of the simplest and most enduring forms of children’s books, a common feature of children’s literature since Shakespeare’s day.


    In the sixteenth century, then known as ‘Hornbooks’, they generally consisted of a piece of parchment or paper, pasted on a wooden board and protected by a transparent sheet of animal horn. Some examples were also made of ivory.


    Hornbook from around 1630

    These early books displayed letters of the alphabet, a syllabary (list of Syllables), as well as prayers for novice readers. They taught pronunciations of vowel and consonant combinations. Over time the Hornbook was gradually replaced with another alphabet text, known as the ‘Battledore.”

    Battledore

    A Battledore was a small racket-like instrument that was used for playing badminton. 


    The term was applied to the wooden or cardboard tablets that developed as devices for teaching children to read. This was the real birth of the modern Alphabet Book. Such texts first appeared in the 1750s and were produced until the middle of the C19th.

    I thought it would be interesting to do a series on artist’s self-portraits. Some are famous as portraitists, others not so much, but very many artists have painted their own portraits over centuries. Some of the more contemporary artists became more experimental with their style of painting as time went on, and it’s interesting to see that development in their own portraits as well.


    I decided to run the series in alphabetical order rather than chronological order, to give a more interesting mix of styles through the ages.



    This is part 1 of an 8-part series on Artist’s Self Portraits:



    Albrecht Dürer (1471 Nuremberg, Germany – 1528 Nuremberg, Germany) was a painter, printmaker, and theorist of the German Renaissance. Born in Nuremberg, Dürer established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties due to his high-quality woodcut prints.

    Allan Gwynne-Jones CBE DSO RA (1892, UK – 1982, UK) was an English painter. Gwynne-Jones was born in Richmond, Surrey. He was educated at Bedales School and then qualified as a solicitor, but never practised.
