The Great age of fresco: Giotto to Pontormo; an exhibition of mural paintings and monumental drawings by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and Italian and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Age of Fresco: Giotto to Pontormo," which was on view for only two months in the fall of 1968, was the first exhibition at the Museum to have corporate sponsorship. Olivetti's underwriting of the exhibition was seen as a model for the pursuit of corporate sponsors for the Centennial exhibitions being planned at that time. -- Excerpt from Wikipedia article "The Metropolitan Museum of Art Centennial."
The golden age of Dutch art : painting, sculpture, decorative art by Judikje Kiers( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To mark the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Dutch National Art Gallery (later the Rijksmuseum), it was decided to bring together all the greatest masterpieces of the Golden Age, both those that remained at home and those that had been dispersed throughout the world, to make a definitive exhibition celebrating that wonderful century. This book is a record of that exhibition and a way of giving it permanent form. All the exhibits are reproduced in colour and linked by brief commentaries providing information on the artists, their social background and patronage. It includes not only paintings but also examples of the applied arts of the time, from silver by the brothers Van Vianen and tapestries by Francois Spierings to exquisite pieces of Delftware."--Jacket
Jan Steen, painter and storyteller by H. Perry Chapman( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by H. Perry Chapman, Wouter Th. Kloek, and Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr., with contributions by other noted art historians, this book draws on the most recent scholarship and archival research to reassess Steen within the context of seventeenth-century Netherlandish artistic, literary, and cultural movements. A translation of Arnold Houbraken's biography of Steen, written in the eighteenth century, is included, as well as a biographical essay that uses numerous contemporary sources to present the most comprehensive profile on Steen yet published. Other essays discuss Steen's relationship to the theater and to other Dutch painters of the time, his critical reception, and his varied self-portrayals. Fifty of Steen's paintings, chosen to demonstrate his consummate skill as both painter and storyteller, are catalogued in detail

The art of devotion in the late Middle Ages in Europe, 1300-1500 by H. W. van Os( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and Dutch and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art for private devotion, or 'props in an intimate theatre of spirituality' as Henk van Os characterizes it, includes some of the most extraordinary as well as the most beautiful objects created in the Late Middle Ages. Selecting the best preserved and most interesting examples of devotional art made in Europe in the two centuries before the Reformation, the author dramatically draws aside the veil on the prayer and meditation 'exercises' which the clergy and high-placed laity once practiced, using these objects as an aid towards their passionately desired goal of communion with Jesus. This book makes available a modern, well informed perspective on medieval religious art and iconography. It covers fundamental attitudes to images, the connection between art, relics, and visions, the relationship of public and private art, the role of local saints and religious movements."--Publisher description
Rembrandt, the printmaker by Erik Hinterding( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue, compiled by leading authorities, aims to illustrate a broad and representative selection of Rembrandt's finest prints. New areas of research have opened up in recent years, allowing us to follow the progress of his work on each plate and revealing how and when he revised the images at various times during his life. The papers he used are studied and previously unknown watermarks are reproduced. The roles played by Rembrandt's preparatory oil sketches and drawings are also now better understood, and these new insights are presented to a wider public for the first time in this lavishly illustrated volume."--Jacket
Dawn of the golden age : northern Netherlandish art, 1580-1620 by J Bruyn( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aelbert Cuyp by Aelbert Cuyp( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forty-five of Cuyp's most distinguished paintings and sixty-four drawings are reproduced here in brilliant color, accompanied by more than 100 comparative illustrations. Their appeal lies not only in the subject matter but also in their distinctive style, for Cuyp infused his arcadian subjects and river views with a sensitivity to light and a clarity of form that is firmly grounded in reality." "Published to accompany an international touring exhibition, the book features insightful essays by an international team of curators and scholars that discuss Cuyp's work in the context of his time, personal background, artistic development, patrons, use of costume, and artistic techniques."--Jacket
Rembrandt : the master & his workshop by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rembrandt is an artist who has excited exceptional interest since his own lifetime: the remarkable combination of his work, his complex personal relationships, his financial difficulties and the relative lack of documentary evidence has generated a vast body of scholarship. As a result, by the middle of this century, innumerable paintings and drawings were attributed to Rembrandt and a romantic mythology had replaced the facts of his life. The Rembrandt Research Project, comprising the foremost Rembrandt scholars, based in Amsterdam, has undertaken the formidable task of establishing a body of works which can be securely attributed to Rembrandt. This has resulted in the deattribution of many paintings, once unquestioningly accepted as Rembrandts. Others have focused on artists known to have studied in Rembrandt's workshop and the attribution of paintings to these students. This magnificent book unites these two strands of research to present for the first time a clear picture of Rembrandt's relationship with the members of his workshop. The book also serves as a catalogue of the exhibition organised by curators from Berlin, Amsterdam and London--galleries which have three of the finest collections of Rembrandts. It includes essays on Rembrandt's biography and social status, his technique, the organisation of his workshop, and the history of critical response to him. The catalogue contains detailed study of fifty-one paintings by Rembrandt, providing a chronological overview of his entire output from his earliest subjects to the last self-portrait. This is followed by sections for pupils, including Ferdinand Bol, Gerrit Dou and Nicolaes Maes, in which paintings once given to Rembrandt are reattributed to members of his workshop and related to paintings known to be by them. Thus readers may judge these new ideas for themselves on the basis of the evidence provided. -- Inside jacket flap

Gabriel Metsu by Adriaan E Waiboer( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rembrandt : the late works by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the mid-1650s until his death at age sixty-three, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606--1669) generated a remarkable body of work as he searched for a new, painterly, and expressive style. His later works demonstrate his mastery, skillfulness, and exceptional ability to render the effects of light, and they have since defined his image as an artist. Rembrandt gleaned inspiration from his direct study of nature, exalting the humble, the mundane, and even the ugly, particularly in his self-portraits and works based on his everyday surroundings. His intimate pictures of figures from history, often portrayed in austere or introspective attitudes, are created with extraordinary sensitivity. This handsome volume includes superb reproductions of some of Rembrandt's most recognizable paintings, alongside etchings and drawings in various media that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium. Through a series of thematic essays, the authors draw on new research to examine Rembrandt's iconographic, stylistic, and technical innovations and underscore how his work in one medium influenced his work in others. This captivating book is the first to focus exclusively on the paintings, drawings, and prints that Rembrandt produced during the final, most creative phase of his career"

Still-life paintings from the Netherlands, 1550-1720 by Alan Chong( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stunning book presents the very best still lifes produced in the Netherlands at the height of the genre, from the early beginnings in the 16th century, with Pieter Aertsen and Joachim Beuckelaer, to the late highlights in the 18th century, with Rachel Ruysch and Jan van Huysum. Despite the popularity and abundance of flower paintings in modern collections, the book includes a wide range of subjects and styles, from the simple to the complex, the charmingly small to the opulent and extravagant, and from flowers to hunting still lifes or objects in the corner of a painter's studio, along with an occasional trompe l'oeil. The visual delights of still-life painting have a strong historical context. Collectors and connoisseurs purchased them because of their realism, visual appeal, and relevance to their own lives. Poets praised the wonders of still-life paintings and evoked the power of painting to transcend the seasons and the passing of time. Contemporary observers lauded the expensive and elaborate objects often on display. The book therefore considers the visual achievement of the Netherlandish still life painters in the context of contemporary reactions to pictures, art theory, and issues of patronage. Numerous artists were tempted to try their hand at still life, drawn by a new and enchanting genre that allowed an artist to create independent worlds of inanimate objects on the flat surface of a picture -- imaginary realms that had an exceptional following among connoisseurs of the time. These images continue to work their magic on present-day art lovers
