Carlo Cesare Malvasia‘s
The Lives of the Bolognese Painters
The Lives of Francesco Francia and Lorenzo Costa
Edited by Elizabeth Cropper and Lorenzo Pericolo
Illustrated with numerous color images (many of them taken expressly for this publication), this volume provides a critical edition and annotated translation of Malvasia’s lives of Francia and his disciples, among them prominently Costa. The integral transcription (for the first time) in this volume of Malvasia’s preparatory notes (Scritti originali) to the lives of Francia, Costa, and Chiodarolo presents important material that could foster the study of Bolognese painting in the age of humanism under the rulership of the Bentivoglio.

Artists everywhere and across all time periods have collaborated with one another. Yet in the early modern Low Countries, collaboration was particularly widespread, resulting in a number of distinctive visual forms that have become strongly associated with artistic – and especially painterly – practice in this region. While art historians long glossed over this phenomenon, which appeared to discomfitingly counter nineteenth-century notions of authorship and artistic genius that have long shaped the field, the past few decades have seen increased attention to this rich and complicated subject. The essays in this book together constitute a current state of the question, while at once pointing the way forward.
