Jan Steen, painter and storyteller by H. Perry Chapman( Book )

30 editions published in 1996 in English and Italian and held by 891 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

Envisioning the artist in the early modern Netherlands = Het beeld van de kunstenaar in de vroegmoderne Nederlanden( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early modern period is defined, in part, by the emergence of the artist as a distinctive kind of human subject. This volume is concerned with images and discourses of the artist in the Netherlands from the late 15th century until the mid 17th century, when the relationship between a community of craftsmen and elite individuals, between consciousness of a native tradition and membership of international humanist society, between image and word, between hand, mind and spirit, were being actively negotiated. Discussions of architects, painter-poets and copyists critically engage with the Netherlandish artist's identification with oil painting, which became ever-closer during this period. Contributions in which self-portraits, images of the studio and art literature are related to the practices, behaviour and economic lives of a range of practitioners, provide new insights into the artist not only as a producer but a figure produced by his work

Arts of display = Het vertoon van de kunst( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent wave of renovations of Netherlandish museums inspired this volume of the "Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek," which focuses on display as a key approach to the visual culture of the Netherlands from the early modern period to the present. The volume opens with a critical discussion of the newly reinstalled Rijksmuseum. It includes analyses of the depiction of aggressive interactions with artworks, the ways in which meaning is mobilised by changing displays of paintings by Rubens, and the politics of display in a seventeenth-century palace and in Fascist and De Stijl exhibitions. Display in domestic spaces, including Rembrandt s house and a museum of Asiatic art, is considered, as are the implications of plinths and curtains

Abraham Bloemaert (1566--1651), the "Netherlandish Academy" and artistic collaboration in seventeenth-century Utrecht by Elizabeth Ann Nogrady( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Dutch artist Abraham Bloemaert (1566-1651) and his pupils, this dissertation explores works of art that manifest the teacher/student relationship as well as concepts of artistic individuality and cooperation developing in the late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Netherlands. To investigate these themes, the text considers students' experience in Bloemaert's workshop and studies projects undertaken jointly by Bloemaert, his pupils, and their peers such as friendship albums, commissions for the Prince of Orange and the King of Denmark, and art for a local clandestine Catholic church. It argues that Bloemaert's tutelage fostered among his students an awareness of professional development as consisting of practical workshop experience, displays of camaraderie, and personal artistic consciousness. Related to these practices is the character of Utrecht, whose special status in the Northern Netherlands in this period stemmed from its large Catholic population, despite the dominance of the Reformed faith in local government and the eventual ban on the open practice of Catholicism. As a Catholic, Bloemaert used collaboration regularly to offset professional restrictions, such as being unable to head the artists' Guild of Saint Luke, placed on him because of his religion. In doing so, he served as a stabilizing force for Utrecht artists during the political, religious, and social tumult that characterized the Dutch fight for independence from Spain
