Log In Sign Up. Paragone Past and Present Volume 1. Paragone studies, popular in the Renaissance to de- scribe rivalry through comparative analysis, is interpreted broadly to include all artistic competition in a variety of media between the past and the present.

This society unites scholars who re- search in these areas, offering opportunities for an exchange of ideas. They responded to his challenge by writing letters expounding upon his rhetorical solicitation.

Michelangelo Buonarroti and Benvenuto Cellini being amongst the respondents, the fame of the rivalry between the arts was inaugurated into the most celebrated circle of luminaries.

In the spirit of Varchi's call for scholarly consideration of the arts and their strengths, this journal explores the history, both before and after the Renaissance, of the paragone, which was a term that became popular in the humanistic context of the Renaissance, and refers to the ongoing debate regarding the relative merits of the arts, and more broadly to artistic rivalry or competition.

Combining socio-historic methodologies with a paragonising methodology, contributing authors examine how artistic rivalry has shaped the history of all media.

Despite its notability as a Renaissance phenomenon, rivalry between the arts began in antiquity, and generated a tradition that has prompted and informed the theoretical and practical relationship between the arts ever since. From ancient historians, such as Pliny, we know that illustrious figures like Zeuxis and Apelles com- peted for fame and perfection in the arts.

And as mentioned, during the Renaissance, visual artists responded to the widely held belief that the literary arts were superior to their own, and participated in literary and other disputations over which medium could best express the glory of God and nature. The debate was generally inconclusive and continued in various permutations into the present. A paragonising artist may be one of any era or discipline.
