Vermeer & the art of painting by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the creative process and technical means by which the great Dutch seventeenth-century painter achieved his remarkable pictorial effects. Arthur Wheelock begins by placing Vermeer's art in historical perspective, with emphasis on the artistic environment in his home city of Delft and the importance of history painting in the mid-1600s. He then closely examines seventeen of the thirty-six extant paintings in Vermeer's oeuvre, works that span the range of the artist's career. Using the results of x-rays, pigment analysis, and infrared reflectography, some of the secrets of Vermeer's wonderfully elusive artistry are revealed. For example, Vermeer was able to simulate reality, simplify and highlight meaning, establish a sense of time and permanence, and enhance the mood he wished to create through inventive use of brushwork, color, and compositional refinements. Lavishly illustrated with color reproductions of Vermeer's paintings, the book is certain to appeal to all devotees of Dutch art
Jan Steen, painter and storyteller by H. Perry Chapman( Book )

29 editions published in 1996 in 4 languages and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jan Steen (1626-1679) is one of the most admired and quintessential seventeenth-century Dutch painters. His repertoire included genre, portraits, refined images of upper-class life, and complex, witty comic narratives. He also painted religious and mythological scenes that vary from quiet and intimate to grand and melodramatic. In his brushwork he displayed an astonishing range, from extremely fine to remarkably loose, even within a single painting
Gerard ter Borch by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerard ter Borch (1617-1681) was unequalled among his Dutch peers for capturing the elegance & grace of wealthy Dutch society in his portraiture. A major influence on Vermeer, ter Borch has not received the attention he deserves & this is the first major English language text about his work
Gerrit Dou, 1613-1675 : master painter in the age of Rembrandt by Ronni Baer( Book )

18 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's first pupil, was lauded at an early age by his contemporaries as a model for other painters. His works, sought by collectors throughout Europe, fetched extremely high prices well into the eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, Dou's reputation had fallen into eclipse, and the works of a master whose fame had once equaled that of Rembrandt appeared only rarely, if at all, in exhibitions of Dutch art. In the last thirty years scholars have begun to reevaluate the artistic achievement of Gerrit Dou. This book, which accompanies the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to Dou's works, provides an opportunity to reassess the artist's achievements."--Jacket
Aelbert Cuyp by Aelbert Cuyp( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Dutch and held by 543 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
Jan Lievens : a Dutch master rediscovered by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jan Lievens (1607-1674) was one of the most fascinating and enigmatic Dutch artists of the 17th century. Daring and innovative as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman, he created powerful character studies, genre scenes, landscapes, formal portraits, and religious and allegorical images that were widely praised and valued during his lifetime. This beautiful book, the first overview of the full range of Lievens' career, features more than 50 paintings - many of them newly discovered in private collections - and more than 75 prints and drawings, providing a reassessment of his place in the history of art." "Lievens began his career in his native Leiden, where he worked closely with his compatriot Rembrandt, who admired and collected Lievens' works. Lievens then moved to London, Antwerp, and Amsterdam, and his peripatetic career and multitude of working styles, say the authors of this book, may explain why his reputation today is not as high as it should be. This book offers a necessary corrective, returning to Lievens the esteem he deserves."--Jacket
Flemish paintings of the seventeenth century by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The National Gallery of Art's collection of seventeenth-century Flemish paintings is relatively small, numbering less than sixty, but exceptional in quality. At the core of the collection are twelve paintings by Sir Peter Paul Rubens and his school and seventeen paintings by Sir Anthony van Dyck, including some of their finest masterpieces. Also represented are excellent works by other important Flemish masters, among them Osias Beert the Elder, Adriaen Brouwer, Jan Brueghel the Elder, and David Teniers the Younger." "This catalogue of the Gallery's remarkable collection of Flemish paintings offers new information about each of the individual works. Stylistic characteristics of the paintings have been analyzed; historical circumstances related to their creation have been assessed; and their provenances have been reexamined. A number of the paintings have undergone conservation treatment, while the technical characteristics of other works have been thoroughly studied. This exhaustive research has indicated that the titles, dates, and even attributions of a number of works needed to be changed, and the catalogue includes a concordance of these revisions."--Jacket
Rembrandt's late religious portraits by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most fascinating aspects of Rembrandt's extraordinary artistic career is his suite of brooding, pensive half-length images of religious figures from the late 1650s and early 1660s. The men and women in these portraits peer out of the dark recesses of dimly lit interiors as though burdened by the weight of their spiritual and emotional concerns." "This illustrated catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, brings together seventeen of these majestic paintings. Many have been identified as images of apostles and evangelists, but among them are also representations of Christ and the Virgin, as well as saints and monks. The juxtaposition of these paintings in Rembrandt's Late Religious Portraits raises questions about their relationships to each other and, in a broader sense, to Rembrandt's life and career."--Jacket

Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century by National Gallery of Art (U.S.)( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the hardships of a long and arduous war against Spain, seventeenth-century Dutch artists seem to have drawn strength, and Dutch paintings of this period express pride in a unique social and cultural heritage. The ability of Dutch artists to convey the poetry of everyday life, represent the textures of the manmade and natural worlds, portray vivid likenesses, and reinterpret history and mythology themes is evident in such paintings as Vermeer's A Lady Writing, Willem Claesz. Heda's Banquet Piece, Frans Hals' Willem Coymans, and Rembrandt's Lucretia. Paintings by these and other masters attracted the American collectors P. A. B. Widener, his son Joseph, and Andrew W. Mellon, whose bequests form the heart of the National Gallery's distinguished and remarkably cohesive collection of ninety-one Dutch paintings. Included in this volume are: an essay on attribution to Rembrandt and his school; an appendix of artists' signatures and monograms; and a summary of the technical notes resulting from examinations in the National Gallery's conservation laboratories using infrared reflectography and x-radiography
