114 BATTISTINI, MATILDE. Astrology, Magic, And Alchemy In Art.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2007. Guide to Imagery Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
From antiquity to the Enlightenment, astrology, magic, and alchemy were considered important tools to unravel the mysteries of nature and human destiny. As a result of the West's exposure during the Middle Ages to the astrological beliefs of Arab philosophers and the mystical writings of late antiquity, these occult traditions became rich sources of inspiration for Western artists. This volume presents a careful analysis of occult iconography in many of the great masterpieces of Western art, calling out key features in the illustrations for discussion and interpretation. Astrological symbols decorated medieval churches and illuminated manuscripts as well as fifteenth-century Italian town halls and palaces. The transformational symbology of magic and alchemy that enlivened the work of a wide range of Renaissance artists, including Bosch, Bruegel, Durer, and Caravaggio, found renewed expression in the visionary works of nineteenth-century artists, such as Fuseli and Blake, as well as in the creative output of the twentieth century's Surrealists. Matilde Battistini is an art critic and the author of Picasso: L'Opera di un genio.

115 BATTISTINI, MATILDE. Symbols And Allegories In Art.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2005. A Guide To Imagery Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
From antiquity, when the gods and goddesses were commonly featured in works of art, through the twentieth century, when Surrealists drew on archetypes from the unconscious, artists have embedded symbols in their works. As with previous volumes in the Guide to Imagery series, the goal of this book is to provide contemporary readers and museum visitors with the tools to read the hidden meanings in works of art. This latest volume is thematically divided into four sections featuring symbols related to time, man, space (earth and sky), and allegories or moral lessons. Readers will learn, for instance, that night, the primordial mother of the cosmos, was often portrayed in ancient art as a woman wrapped in a black veil, whereas day or noon was often represented in Renaissance art as a strong, virile man, evoking the full manifestation of the sun's energy. Each entry in the book contains a main reference image in which details of the symbol or allegory being analyzed are called out for discussion. In the margin, for quick access by the reader, is a summary of the essential characteristics of the symbol in question, the derivation of its name, and the religious tradition from which it springs. Matilde Battistini is an art critic and coauthor, with Stefano Zuffi, of Picasso: L'opera di un genio and La Natura Morta.

Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston: 2005. 091066367X / 9780910663670 h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Sport stars break down in Senate hearings. A presidential race is derailed by a scream. Giddy video-game car thieves celebrate. From the rise of sensitive superheroes to the proliferation of mood-regulating drugs like Prozac, the concept and culture of emotion runs deeply through our experience of contemporary life and the images that we see. Getting Emotional presents the work of a diverse selection of artists for whom emotion is an important subject. The exhibition charts the profound attention paid to emotion by artists during the past decade and a half, while also including work from the 1960s to the 1980s that anticipates this recent exploration.
