Painters in Renaissance Venice: A History of the Workshop of the Bellini Family

A book-length study on the workshop of the Bellini, the foremost family of painters in Renaissance Venice.

This book provides the first comprehensive history of the Bellini workshop. It employs cross-disciplinary methods and novel approaches, and draws upon a wide range of primary sources that include civil laws, acts of magistracies, tax registers, home inventories, Scuole records, legal documents, and, of course, paintings and drawings by the Bellini and their contemporaries. It builds upon twenty-five years of research and academic articles that have appeared since the last published monographs on Jacopo Bellini (1989) and Gentile Bellini (1985). And it relies on discoveries that I made during more than four years of research in the Venetian archives. This study answers numerous longstanding questions about the Bellini and their workshop, lays foundational work upon which other Renaissance scholars will rely, and presents new questions that will frame future research on fifteenth-century Venetian painting.
