Jacopo Tintoretto was the most prolific painter working in Venice in the later 16th century. Though his early career was marked by the struggle to achieve recognition, in his mature years he worked extensively on decorations for the Doge's Palace and for the meeting-house of the Scuola Grande di S Rocco. In addition to his religious and mythological works, Jacopo also painted many portraits of prominent Venetians. His swift, abbreviated style was, however, never wholly accepted by the leading aristocratic families that dominated Venetian cultural life and, despite a long and busy career, Jacopo Tintoretto apparently never became rich. This fully illustrated Grove Art Essentials title introduces Tintoretto's life and work, the development of his style, and his critical reception, and it includes an extensive bibliography to jumpstart further study of this remarkable Renaissance painter.

The Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto (1518–94) is an ambiguous figure in the history of art. Critics and writers such as Vasari, Ruskin and Sartre all placed him in opposition to the established artistic practice of his time, noting that he had abandoned the values that typified the venerable Venetian Renaissance tradition, even being expelled as an apprentice from the workshop of Titian. This generously illustrated book offers a long-overdue re-evaluation of Tintoretto. Tom Nichols charts the artist's life and work in the context of Venetian art and the culture of the Cinquecento. He shows how the artist created a new manner of painting, which for all its originality and sophistication made its first appeal to the shared emotions of the widest-possible viewing audience. The book deals extensively with Tintoretto's greatest works, including the paintings at the Scuola di San Rocco in Venice.

Tintoretto (real name Jacopo Comin) was an Italian painter and a notable exponent of the Renaissance school. For his phenomenal energy in painting he was termed Il Furioso. His work is characterized by its muscular figures, dramatic gestures, and bold use of perspective in the Mannerist style, while maintaining color and light typical of the Venetian School. He is said to have trained very briefly with Titian, but the style of his immature works suggests that he may also have studied with Bonifacio Veronese, Paris Bordone, or Schiavone. Almost all of his life was spent in Venice and most of his work is still in the churches or other buildings for which it was painted. He appears to have been unpopular because he was unscrupulous in procuring commissions and ready to undercut his competitors. Tintoretto used to make small wax models which he arranged on a stage and experimented on with spotlights for effects of light and shade and composition. He was a formidable draughtsman and, according to Ridolfi, he had inscribed on his studio wall the motto 'The drawing of Michelangelo and the color of Titian'. However, he was very different in spirit from either of his avowed models, more emotive, using vivid exaggerations of light and movement. His drawings are brilliant, rapid notations, bristling with energy, and his color is more somber and mystical than Titian's.

A provocative account of the philosophical problem of 'difference' in art history, Tintoretto's Difference offers a new reading of this pioneering 16th century painter, drawing upon the work of the 20th century philosopher Gilles Deleuze. Bringing together philosophical, art historical, art theoretical and art historiographical analysis, it is the first book-length study in English of Tintoretto for nearly two decades and the first in-depth exploration of the implications of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy for the understanding of early modern art and for the discipline of art history. With a focus on Deleuze's important concept of the diagram, Tintoretto's Difference positions the artist's work within a critical study of both art history's methods, concepts and modes of thought, and some of the fundamental dimensions of its scholarly practice: context, tradition, influence, and fact. Indicating potentials of the diagrammatic for art historical thinking across the registers of semiotics, aesthetics, and time, Tintoretto's Difference offers at once an innovative study of this seminal artist, an elaboration of Deleuze's philosophy of the diagram, and a new avenue for a philosophical art history.
