Rembrandt and the Passion by Peter Black( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 165 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

The beauty of anatomy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this five part series, Dr Adam Rutherford investigates the close relationship between discoveries in anatomy and the works of art that illustrate them. In the penultimate episode, Adam investigates the story of the two brilliant but controversial Hunter brothers, who transformed medicine and art in 18th-century Britain. Over a period of 25 years beginning in 1750, William and John Hunter dissected the bodies of a series of pregnant women. Each stage of the process was captured in chalk by Dutch artist Jan van Rymsdyk and compiled into William Hunter{u2019}s seminal work, The Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus (1774). At the Wellcome Library, Adam examines the book with Simon Chaplin. Many of its 34 plates are life-sized to maximise detail and accuracy. The Hunter brothers{u2019} belief that their students could only learn anatomy by carrying out dissections created an unprecedented demand for dead bodies and a market for the growing trade of body snatching from graveyards. Adam travels to the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow to view van Rymsdyk{u2019}s original chalk illustrations. Their vivid realism set them apart from their anatomically {u2018}perfect{u2019} predecessors. Yet van Rymsdyk came to resent William Hunter, and his name is omitted from the book{u2019}s preface. At Glasgow University Adam consults the brothers{u2019} pathological preparations with Quentin Fogg. William{u2019}s extensive art collection demonstrates his dual interests in art and medicine. When the Royal Academy of Arts opened in 1768, William became the first Professor of Anatomy. He used a full-sized cast of an anatomised body in his classes, smaller replicas of which became an indispensable tool for artists. At the Hunterian Museum, London, Adam learns how John went beyond human anatomy to study the whole of life; an approach that left him with a very different conception of its origins to that of William. John{u2019}s biographer Wendy Moore outlines the rift that developed between the brothers, leading to the creation of two separate Hunterian collections in London and Glasgow
