Item description for Art and Politics in Early Modern Germany: Jorg Breu the Elder and the Fashioning of Political Identity Ca. 1475-1536 (Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions) by Pia F. Cuneo...

An exploration of the interaction between art and politics in early modern Germany, this work focuses on art, political in content, produced by the Augsburg artist Jorg Breu the Elder during the second and third decades of the 16th century. The text argues for the function of the art as fashioning political identities. The artist Jorg Breu is introduced first. His work for the city of Augsburg and for Habsburg and Wittelsbach rulers are examined. These works are placed within their historical context and analyzed according to how they articulate themes of warfare, ceremony, and history in order to construct political identity. The analysis of Breu's city chronicle and of the response of his art to political contest should be particularly useful for historians of art and of politics.
