The monumentality of the Virgin, the thrust of the Child, and the bold plasticity of every form suggest study with the followers of Michelangelo in mid-century Rome. At the same time, this powerful description has been circumscribed by Cambiaso’s exaggerated regularity of shapes, as in the figures’ heads, and embellished with the unnatural grace of their extremities, which recalls the works that Raphael’s follower Perino del Vaga had created for Genoa. Throughout, from the luscious frosting of the Virgin’s white sleeve to the exquisite filaments about the eyes, there is evident delight in the sheer matter of paint and possibilities of the brush. This virtuosity is conspicuous because of the work’s execution on panel and the excellent preservation of most of its surface. The painting demonstrates the young artist’s startling ambition, explains his first synthesis of influences, and predicts his place among the major figures of Mannerism.

The activity of Luca Cambiaso represents the foundation of a native and highly progressive school of painting. First trained locally by his father, Cambiaso then went to Rome, where he assimilated the current style based on Michelangelo’s painting. Returning to Genoa, he cultivated the geometry and ideality that underpin that style. This led to the development of what is perhaps the most abstract and intellectualized style of the entire Italian Renaissance. Its characteristics are an extreme simplification of form, opacity of expression, broadness of execution, and modality according to the subject and function of the painting. Rendering the Jewish queen’s courageous intercession with the Persian king to save her people, this painting is an outstanding example of Cambiaso’s most conventionally beautiful mode. Expressing the powerful conjunction of physical allure and moral force, the subject was a favorite from around this time through the 18th century. Typical of Cambiaso’s art, the composition is spare, schematic, and still. True to this mode, and appropriate to the subject, the description is relatively generous, the touch, especially in the ornament, delicate, and the tenor gentle.

He was himself schooled in that style, its Roman equivalent, and especially the work of Bronzino, but even his earliest paintings show a reaction against its complex artifice and a return to the simpler compositions and clearer rhetoric of the High Renaissance and Raphael in particular. Later, stimulated by Venetian painting, Santi’s added to these deliberately conservative schemes a more naturalistic color and atmospheric light that were new to Florentine painting. His works after around 1570 represent the school’s best examples of Counter Reformation style and best predictions of the early Baroque. Many of the principal painters of the next generation would come from his workshop. Sent by Abraham to find a wife for Isaac, Eliezar came upon Rebecca, who offered him and his camels drink in the predicted sign of the right woman (Genesis 25: 46). This painting renders the following moment as Eliezar explains to Rebecca her destiny and his attendants ready gifts in betrothal, but she for the time being resists. The subject, large size, low viewpoint, and generally broad handling of this painting indicate that it was created as an altarpiece, probably on an aisle or in a side chapel of a major church. Santi contributed very comparable works to programs for the renovation of the Florentine churches of Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella. Characteristic are the painting’s relatively simple organization, plain exposition, and quiet dignity, while the Venetian influence is pronounced in the diagonal compositional structure, fused color, and coherent illumination. This is a rare kind of work outside Italy and a major example of Santa’s early maturity . ", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Archer M.

Early in his development, the forms had been quite arbitrary and the result stylish but implausible. Steadily, his design was regularized according to classical models, his palette reached an unprecedented optical range, and his light became naturalistically descriptive. A small altarpiece probably for private devotion, this picture sets the Virgin and the archangel Gabriel in a handsome loggia, like that of an actual villa by Palladio, with whom the artist often collaborated. It is one of numerous late versions of the subject, with no sign of the workshop participation that had become frequent by then. The highlights have lost little of their energy, coursing across the surfaces and infusing the work with a metaphoric vitality. The figures, however, have been simplified in shape, their cadence slowed and their gesture subdued. And the palette is relatively restricted and uniform in value. In such paintings, the heroic splendor of the artist’s mature style yields to something less calculated and more reflective. The Suida-Manning Collection includes two other paintings from the same period, each a fragment from a larger composition. The composition depends upon a painting by Tintoretto.

However arbitrary his compositions and complicated his devices, their visual energy and the viewer’s visceral sensation return to inform the ostensible subject. In this sense his work represents both the height of a distinctively Venetian Mannerism and a critical source of the Baroque, Rubens’s work in particular. So vital and economical, this style lent itself to portraiture. At their best, Tintoretto’s portraits combine audacious painterliness and powerful characterization. Often, due to the intervention of assistants, they also appear formulaic and unfelt. This portrait, by Jacopo’s eldest son, is an extraordinary example. The drawing is unusually firm, the surface compact, and the light varied, from the glistening corner of the sitter’s eye to the faint glow about his head. This description of a very specific appearance is matched by the psychology, not just generically present but momentary and penetrating. During the 1580s Agostino and Annibale Carracci traveled frequently to Venice and assimilated the school’s most advanced developments: color and classicizing form from Paolo Veronese, and of course dynamic and light from Jacopo Tintoretto. This painting involves the opposite phenomenon: Domenico Tintoretto’s response to the revolutionary experiments of the Carracci. It joins their work on the threshold of the Baroque.
