Mirror of the earth : the world landscape in sixteenth-century Flemish painting by Walter S Gibson( Book )

11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flemish world landscapes, which depict extensive panoramas seen in bird's-eye perspective, were produced in large numbers, chiefly at Antwerp, during the sixteenth century. In Mirror of the earth, Walter Gibson presents a comprehensive study of the world landscape, establishing it as a distinct pictorial type and analyzing it within the artistic and intellectual milieu in which it flourished. We learn that far from being a medieval anachronism, as some scholars have insisted, the world landscape was very much a product of its time, associated with contemporary advances in cartography and reflecting a Renaissance view of the world and of man's relationship to it

Pleasant places : the rustic landscape from Bruegel to Ruisdael by Walter S Gibson( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gibson's multilayered exploration of the rustic landscape enhances our understanding of the Golden Age in Dutch art, and his evocative language recalls a countryside now largely gone. At the same time, this illustrated book gracefully articulates the role of the Dutch rustic landscape in the history of landscape painting."--Jacket
Pieter Bruegel and the art of laughter by Walter S Gibson( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pieter Bruegel (ca. 1525-1569), generally considered the greatest Flemish painter of the sixteenth century, was described in 1604 by his earliest biographer as a supremely comic artist, few of whose works failed to elicit laughter. Today, however, we approach Bruegel's art as anything but a laughing matter. His paintings and drawings are thought to conceal profound allegories best illuminated with scholarly erudition. In this delightfully engaging book, Walter S. Gibson takes a new look at Bruegel, arguing that the artist was no erudite philosopher, but a man very much in the world, and that a
Figures of speech : picturing proverbs in renaissance Netherlands by Walter S Gibson( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Figures of Speech addresses a key topic in Renaissance studies: the importance and pervasiveness of proverbs. For sixteenthcentury Netherlanders, proverbs revealed the wisdom of the Ancients as well as the linguistic richness found in their own native language; for Pieter Bruegel, Hieronymus Bosch, and other Renaissance painters, proverbs were a frequent and appealing subject. In this book, Walter S. Gibson provides a comprehensive and engaging survey of these visual representations, capturing for twenty-firstcentury readers the moral sensibilities of a time and culture when such adages (and the images conveying their meaning) were invaluable guides to life

Pieter Bruegel the Elder : two studies by Walter S Gibson( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First of These Two Essays on Pieter Bruegel the Elder is a critical study of the well-known painting Triumph of Death. Gibson's analysis of the visual traditions that inspired Bruegel's highly original and terrifying evocation of humanity's last hour on earth sheds new light on this familiar work
Cornelis Engebrechtsz : a sixteenth-century Leiden artist and his workshop by J. P Filedt Kok( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cornelis Engebrechtsz (c. 1462-1527) was the first major Leiden painter to whom works can be attributed with certainty. These include a Triptych with the Lamentation, dated c. 1508 and a Triptych with the Crucifixion, probably a decade later, both of which were made for the Mariënpoel Convent near Leiden, and which are now in the Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden. These Leiden altarpieces display the influence of the dynamic mannered style and palette of the Antwerp Mannerists, including rather splendid gold brocades. On the basis of the documented works no more as dozen paintings and some fragments can be attributed to the Master himself but many more can be connected to his workshop. This makes it likely that he had a large workshop specialising in devotional works. Engebrechtsz's pupils include his three sons
