Illuminated Manuscripts of Giangaleazzo Visconti synopsis
Five illuminated manuscripts of the ViscontiGiangaleazzo are an in-depth study of many illuminated manuscripts commissioned by an Italian patron of art and learning in the fourteenth century. In this book, Kirsch reveals how a collection of manuscripts commissioned by GiangaleazzoVisconti (in one manuscript, for example, by his immediate family) reflects not only his family fears but also his tendency to express these fears through works of art Classical and Christian piety.
The manuscript, considered the first collection, is one of the most innovative activities in Giangaleazzo as a collection of manuscripts - the commissioning of luxury manuscripts to commemorate major family events. These manuscripts, in their richness and the unique and historical privacy of their own, document the self-image of the Prince, who has recorded his unprecedented achievements in an unprecedented manner.
Despite his policies, Jangalizu's art care was shaped by the practices of his predecessors, and his achievements are best understood as a shepherd in the context of family tradition. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina competed even with his wife's brother, the king.
Charles V of France, famous for being the greatest collector of manuscripts in the late 14th century in Europe. The Kirsch study is based on the assumption that Gianjalazu's care of manuscripts has certain distinctive features: the execution of work through exceptionally talented scribes and lighting, extraordinary fullness, richness of text and lighting, unusual combinations of texts, unusual textual and image links and iconographic manipulation of borders and borders to suit With certain historical circumstances and the expression of specific loyalties.
This study enriches our understanding of each of the manuscripts in the group and follows the development of a distinctive pattern of care that has affected the visual arts in Milan for over a century.
