SIGNED BY AUTHOR WITH DEDICATION dated July 2002. From the library of the dedicatee - an eminent American-born Israeli painter Ivan Schwebel (1932-2011). ONE PLATE MISSING as it was cut out by the painter (detail of spolvero by Andrea del Sarto`s painting "The Baptism of Christ", and Michelangelo`s fresco "The Creation of Adam"). In this extremely rare illustrated historical study of Italian Renaissance art, especially the production of "cartoons" - refined full-scale drawings on paper that served to transfer a design onto the working surface, the eminent American art historian and curator Carmen Bambach analyzes and reconstructs the role of artists and their assistants in the creation of monumental painting, the complexity of workshop practices, and focuses on the techniques of pouncing (in Italian, "spolvero") and stylus tracing or incision ("calco", "calcare", "ricalcare," or "incisione indiretta"). 280x220mm. XXVIII+548 pages. Black cloth Hardcover. Cover, text block edges and few pages paint-stained (the book was probably held and used by previous owner in his studio). Rear cover upper corner bumped. Author`s dedication on title-page. Two plates on both sides of the page 349/350 cut-out by previous owner - NO damage to text on page 349 and another plate on page 350. Binding slightly visible between pages 4-5. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare comprehensive study of the Italian Renaissance cartoons is otherwise in good condition.
