Abstract :
Challenges received ideas about the linear progression of Western painting, from the Renaissance, through Mannerism, to the Baroque. Eschewing traditional stylistic analysis, focuses instead on the painting as a framed image that closely reflects the tenets of artistic epistemology. Arguing that panel painting, from it origins in the early Renaissance, was a 'self-aware image', demonstrates that the artists and their art were often the theme of the painting. Also examines the mirror effect and other 'splitting' strategies such as the mise en abyme and intertextual play. Includes an updated bibliography. ;
