Rembrandt and the Passion by Peter Black( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painted between the years 1632 and 1646, the Passion series is one of Rembrandt's finest accomplishments. This volume investigates a work known as the Entombment Sketch - actually a beautiful finished painting, and the jewel of the Hunterian Art Gallery's collection. Drawing from paint samples, new high-definition imagery, and other technical findings, this volume thoroughly explores the provenance of the painting. The authors also discuss Rembrandt's own influences in creating the Passion series, including Leonardo, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Rubens, and compare the work with that of Rembrandt's contemporaries

"My highest pleasures" : William Hunter's art collection by Peter Black( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Hunter (1718-1783) was appointed Professor of Anatomy at the Royal Academy of Arts on its foundation in 1768 - a post that was created for him. All London attended his sparkling lectures, whether directed at artists or at medical students, and visited the unique museum he established as a study collection. Within this extraordinary museum not the least extraordinary aspect was the collection of art, remarkable at the time because conceived as integral to a new kind of museum, and remarkable today as the only surviving collection formed by one of the founding members of the Royal Academy. In words from Mungo Campbell's introduction to the present book, "In the early twentieth century, it is possible to examine once more, probably for the first time since Hunter's death, the coherence with which his collection spoke to his contemporaries". It is Hunter's part in this milieu - one of particular ferment as regards the arts in Britain, the age of Hogarth, Stubbs and Reynolds - that this book examines, and at the same time documents in full the collection of art that Hunger bequeathed as part of his museum to the University of his native Glasgow." "The book accompanies an exhibition which offers the first ever analysis of his paintings in relation to the taste of this important period. The paintings are considered alongside books, prints and other objects which illustrate the intellectual agenda that lay behind Hunter's acquisitions, and the relationship of Hunter with better-known theorists such as Hogarth and Reynolds." "Four essays by Glasgow specialists present Hunter's biography, the significance of the collection as a whole, Hunter's taste as art collector, and Hunter's original museum in London (now destroyed). In addition to the catalogue and appendices, this volume presents a revised edition of the text of Hunter's manuscript notes for his lectures to the Royal Academy."--BOOK JACKET

Art of power : masterpieces from the Bute Collection at Mount Stuart( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute, was one of history's most enthusiastic art collectors. As tutor to Prince George, Bute became indispensable to the royal household. Soon after his accession to the throne, the King made Bute Prime Minister-a career that was cut short after the Peace of Paris in 1763. Forced out of London by an angry mob, Bute retired to an estate at Luton, where he spent the rest of his years in private study and amassing a collection of 500 paintings, including major works by Venetian painters such as Tintoretto, Bordone, and Veronese. Bute had a special interest in Dutch and Flemish pictures, building the greatest collection of its kind in Britain. This book features over thirty masterpieces, mainly genre paintings and landscapes, and including jewel-like landscapes by Brueghel and Savery. The collection is housed at the Bute family's Scottish seat, Mount Stuart, on the Isle of Bute. Essays by leading scholars delve into the history of Bute's collection, focusing on his relationship with King George III, and his wide- ranging passions, which resulted in rooms filled floor to ceiling with works of art
