En Résumé :

Ce catalogue est édité à l'occasion de l'exposition consacrée au sculpteur vénitien Tullio Lombardo (v. 1455-1532) à la National Gallery of Art, Washington, du 4 juillet au 31 octobre 2009.

Led by Tullio Lombardo, the great Venetian sculptors of the High Renaissance created new ideals of beauty, shaped by a poetic and nostalgic approach to classical antiquity. Their expression shares much with Mantegna, Bellini, Giorgione, and Titian, the northern Italian masters of Renaissance painting. In about 1500 painters in Venice went beyond traditional commissions for altarpieces and household devotional images to develop new art forms-imaginative evocations of ancient mythology, poetry, history, or philosophy made for a growing audience of private collectors. While their achievements are well known, the parallel experiments of Venetian sculptors are far less familiar. Tullio, a brilliant carver inspired both by these painters and by ancient art, devised his own innovations in marble. Blending elements of the antique and the Renaissance, the sacred and the secular, his works raise provocative questions about his haunting subjects.
