About the Authors
  • Giovanni Antonio da Pordenone is a key figure of the Golden Age of Venetian and Veneto art, but his place in the canon of major Renaissance artists is still unclear and the full extent of his influence has often gone unrecognised. This comprehensive study both catalogues his output and examines the social, cultural, and historical context of a career that moved between the most modest provincial places and the highest reaches of Venetian state patronage. There are extensive catalogue entries on all his accepted and collaborative works, with special emphasis on the many difficult problems of condition and bibliography, and the substantial and much-needed corpus of illustrations, which includes a section of colour plates, does justice to both the main body of his oeuvre and the often-neglected minor parts of his numerous cycles.

    • Only substantial study in English
    • Comprehensive critical text and most complete corpus of illustrations (including neglected, lost and minor works, drawings)
    • A major personality, whose art is a non-canonical part of the Italian Renaissance, appealing to modern audiences

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Pordenone is an excellent candidate for a full-scale monographic treatment, and Cohen's volumes are the first in English devoted to one of the major figures of High Renaissance art in the Veneto.' Bruce Boucher, The Times Literary Supplement

    '... will from now on be the standard work on the artist.' John Steer, The Art Book

    'These two weighty volumes are a magnum opus in every sense of the term.' Apollo
