Marina Seretti - Endormis - Le sommeil profond et ses métaphores dans l\'art de la Renaissance
French edition
Les presses du réel – Art History – Misceallenous
A critical and nuanced overview of the figures of the sleeping in the art and thought of the Renaissance, a source of inspiration for artists—Mantegna, Dürer, Brughel, Michelangelo or Tintoretto—as well as theologians, doctors and philosophers (from Aristotle to Zwingli, via Augustine and Montaigne), beyond the negative definition and the traditional condemnation of inactivity and unconciousness.
