In this book, Ivo Blom offers unique insights into the visual vocabulary of Italian filmmaker Luchino Visconti (1906–76), whose cinematic masterpieces include canonical works like Obsession, The Earth Trembles, and The Leopard. Meticulously examining Visconti’s use of European art in his set and costume design, Reframing Luchino Visconti also investigates his cinematography in terms of staging, framing, and mirroring, among other aspects, offering valuable contextualization for the optical splendor in Visconti’s films and revealing their close ties to the other visual arts.
