Prayers and portraits : unfolding the Netherlandish diptych by John Oliver Hand( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The diptych format - comprising two panels hinged together so that they can be opened and closed like a book - was prevalent in Netherlandish art and depicted subjects ranging from secular portraiture to religious personages and stories. This illustrated book, the first ever devoted to the topic, examines approximately forty pairs of Netherlandish paintings from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Featuring magnificent works by Jan van Eyck, Hugo van der Goes, Hans Memling, and Rogier van der Weyden, among others, the book also covers a wide range of themes, including painting techniques, workshop practice, and the art market in the Netherlands of the time." "With discussions on each painting, Prayers and Portraits reunites a number of diptychs that have long been separated. Texts consider the works in relation to contemporary writings and religious practices in northern Europe as well as developments in art and history. They offer invaluable insights into the social status and aspirations of the sitters. They also incorporate new information based on extensive examinations, primary research, and a vast archive of original technical images. Many of these supporting images are reproduced here, including x-radiographs, infrared reflectogram assemblies, digital photographs, and cross sections of paint layers. A detailed appendix at the back of the book provides a complete record of the documentation and analysis of the paintings examined for this project." "This publication gives readers an opportunity to study these beautiful and intriguing works of art and enhances understanding and appreciation for the diptych format in the context of fifteenth-and sixteenth-century Netherlandish culture."--Jacket

"This book represents the first comprehensive study of all the fifteenth-century Flemish paintings in Los Angeles, including those in the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum of Art (Pasadena) and the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery (San Marino). It examines well-known masterpieces by Dirk Bouts, Gerard David, and Hans Memling as well as little-known works, some published here for the first time. Using the latest advances in technical studies, including weave density maps, it reveals new insights. Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated with numerous color illustrations, this volume joins a series of exhaustive studies of early Netherlandish paintings that was begun shortly after the second world war." -- Publisher's description
