Essay Work

Books for my dissertation thus far:
  • Diane Cole Ahl "Benozzo Gozzoli"
  • Michael Baxandall "Painting and Experience in Fifteenth Century Italy"
  • Bernhard Berenson "The Italian Painters of the Renaissance"
  • Edward Chaney (ed.) "The Evolution of English Collecting:  The Reception of Italian Art in the Tudor and Stuart Periods"
  • Milton Grundy "Venice - An Anthology Guide"
  • Hugh Honour "The Companion Guide To Venice"
  • Andrew Martindale "The Triumphs of Caesar by Andrea Mantegna"
  • Derek Patmore "A Traveller in Venice and in Cities of North-East Italy"
  • John Steer "A Concise History of Venetian Painting"
  • Anabel Thomas "The Painter's Practice in Renaissance Tuscany"
  • Vasari "The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects"
  • "The Grove Dictionary of Art"
  • "Larousse Dictionary of Painters"
  • "The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Art and Artists"
I need to decide how much time to give to the different angles and which to drop.  The main areas are:
  • A case study of The Triumphs of Caesar
  • The artist/patron relationship
  • Processions in art
  • Representation of patrons in art
Right now I am overwhelmed.
