Professionalization and Sponsorship Network:an Analysis of Bram Kempers's Painting,Power and Patronage

Qin Jianhua;  
Painting,Power and Patro,nage is the monograph of the Dutch art historian Bram Kempers.In this book,he based his research on a detailed survey and discussion of various types of sponsorship such as religious backing,royal sponsorship,merchant patronage and civic funds during Italian Renaissance in combination with the transformations occurred in culture,politics and economy and with the analysis of specific art works.Bram Kempers pointed out that in Italy,even among the city-states in the same period of time,not only the artistic circumstance but also sponsorship mechanism has obvious differences.He combined painting,power and sponsorship mechanism for a comprehensive analysis,and furthermore had three major issues explored:first,the "professionalizing" process in the development of Italian painting from the 13 th century to the end of the 16 th century;the second is the link between this process and the sponsorship mechanism;the third is the relationship between the inner changes within art itself,the sponsorship mechanism and the ever-changing equilibrium of power.The perspective of "professionalizing" forms the core framework of this book,outlining a unique and convincing mechanism of patronage during Italian Renaissance.
