About this title
This study assembles a wealth of evidence of cult veneration of St. Joseph in renaissance Italy. Carolyn Wilson argues for broad revision of our understanding of devotion to St. Joseph during the late Pre-Tridentine period. Here challenged are the long-held view of the saint's unimportance prior to Counter-Reformation and old assumption that Pre-Tridentine images were often intended to demean him. Pictorial analysis focuses on art commissioned by confraternities and high-ranking patrons devoted to St. Joseph.About the Author:
Carolyn C. Wilson completed her Ph.D. degree from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts with a pioneering contextual study of Giovanni Bellini's "Coronation of the Virgin" altarpiece. Wilson has held curatorial positions at the National Gallery of Art and in Houston. Her publications on Renaissance art include "Italian Paintings, XIV-XVI Centuries, in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston."
