Abstract :
Discusses the natural resistance of portraiture to change from outside a given society, noting especially the societal, political, and genealogical strictures operative in Venice. Considers the purposes and ambitions of the genre, which could range from resemblance to recreation and often - at least to the early 16th c. - excluded portrayals of known patrician women. Enumerates, often through the lens of Vasari, the achievements of Gentile Bellini, Giorgione, Giovanni Bellini, Palma il Vecchio, Antonello da Messina, and Lorenzo Lotto, and seeks to distinguish between their portraits and their pictures. Examines the role of parapets and cartellinos in establishing spatial and theoretical relationships in portraiture of both Northern and Southern Europe (citing works by Jan van Eyck and Dürer for the former). Also assesses the impact of landscape versus blank backgrounds, scale and format, the presentation of hands, and the decision to have the subject make apparent eye contact with the viewer. Notes Titian's breaking of conventions. ;
