Visions of the Courtly Body The Patronage of George Villiers, First Duke of Buckingham, and the Triumph of Painting at the Stuart Court

"As the first comprehensive study of Buckingham's patronage of the visual arts, this book is concerned with the question of how the painted image of the courtier transferred strategies of social distinction that had originated in the masque to the language of painting. Establishing a new grammar in the competing rhetorics of bodily self-fashioning, this recast notion of portraiture contributed to an epistemological change in perceptions of visual representation at the early modern English court, in the course of which painting advanced to the central art form in the aesthetics of kingship."

  • "George Villiers, erster Herzog von Buckingham, war als Vertrauter und Günstling gleich zweier englischer Könige - James' I. und seines Sohnes Charles' I. - politisch so einflussreich und umstritten wie im Europa des beginnenden 17. Jahrhunderts sonst vielleicht nur Kardinal Richelieu. Peter Paul Rubens und Anthonis van Dyck erhielten die Aufträge zu einer Folge von Portraits, mit welchen der Herzog dieser Wahrnehmung ein selbstgeschaffenes Bild seiner Person entgegenzusetzen suchte. Mit diesem Band nimmt die Autorin erstmals eine zusammenhängende Betrachtung der intensiven Sammler- und Auftrag"@en
