Karin Leonhard The Fertile Ground of Painting: Seventeenth-Century Still Lifes and Nature Pieces. Brepols - Harvey Miller, 2020.. Hardcover, 304 pages ., 162 colour ill., 225 x 300 mm, Languages: English. Still Life painting thematizes the ability of Nature and Art to produce similarities and is therefore predestined for a theorization of mimetic strcutures of Art in general. 17th-Century Netherlandish Still Life painting actively participated in the intellectual discourse of natural philosophy and the natural sciences, even though art history until recently described it, somewhat simplifying, as realistic-representative painting. We urgently need a rehabilitation of the notion of Mimesis. The author restarts the discussion, by putting more emphasis on the historical notions of Nature and Image. She examines how mimetic structures acquired a biotic reproductive capacity in the 17th century. Still Life painting thematizes the ability of Nature and Art to produce similarities and is therefore predestined for a theorization of mimetic strcutures of Art in general. Karin Leonhard is professor of art history at the University of Konstanz. EUR 159.00 Verder winkelen In winkelwagen
