This is the first English translation of Gabriele Paleotti's 16th century treatise on the role of art in society. In the wake of the Counter-Reformation, Cardinal Gabriele Paleotti, the archbishop of Bologna, wrote a remarkable treatise on art during a time when the Church feared rampant abuse in the arts. Translated into English for the first time, Paleotti's Discourse on Sacred and Profane Images argues that art should address a broad audience and explains the painter's responsibility to his spectators. The Discourse is introduced by historian Paolo Prodi, who explains how - even if the archbishop did not succeed in reforming the arts - Paleotti's treatise constituted one last synthesis of art as a reading of creation and salvation history, and sacred art as a vehicle of devotion.<br /> Review:<br /> [This book] will be an asset not only to scholars but to lay readers in the field of art history. -- Steve Goddard's History Wire
