German master drawings from the Koenigs collection : return of a lost treasure by Albert J Elen( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book marks the return of a lost treasure to the Netherlands. As part of the renowned Koenigs Collection in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, these 139 drawings and 3 prints were unlawfully obtained by the Nazis during the Second World War, together with a further 389 drawings. During the aftermath of the war this part of the collection disappeared. After a long quest a substantial share of the missing drawings was eventually found in Kyiv, capital of Ukraine. Subsequently, the Ukrainian authorities, recognizing the Netherlands' claim of ownership, decided to return these works of art to the Netherlands. The drawings are now reunited with the Koenigs Collection in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen as a loan from the Netherlands Institute of Cultural Heritage." "Most of the recovered drawings are by 15th- and 16th-century German artists, including works by such famous draughtsmen as Hans Holbein, Hans Baldung Grien and Lucas Cranach. They have not been on public view for more than 64 years. Fifty have never even been illustrated before and as such represent new discoveries. All are reproduced here in full colour for the first time, many at actual size, with revised material data and attributions. They are presented to the world audience to admire and enjoy."--BOOK JACKET

The Bloemaert effect : colour and composition in the Golden Age by Liesbeth M Helmus( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrating the father of the Utrecht School, this record delves into the life of the extraordinary Dutch painter Abraham Bloemaert. A concise biography illustrates how he formed and experienced at least three important styles of art in his time: mannerism, Caravaggism, and classicism, producing works in nearly all possible genres. A presentation of this obscure artist's accomplishments in a fantastic exhibition, this work demonstrates why Bloemaert had such a wide influence on painting in the northern Netherlands of the 17th century. Exploring his role as a teacher in addition to his exceptional talent for drawing, this book also examines the Utrecht specialty of painting cycles as well as specific pieces by Bloemaert, such as his altarpieces, religious and mythological works, genre scenes, landscapes, and still lifes."--Publisher's website
An Eyckian crucifixion explored : ten essays on a drawing by Albert J Elen( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2012 a hitherto unknown 'Eyckian' drawing of the Crucifixion was exhibited in The Road to Van Eyck in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Forty years earlier Wim Hofman, a psychiatrist and art collector from Groningen, had bought the drawing - as a reproduction - for just ten guilders at a local estate auction. He was convinced, however, and rightly so, that it was an original work of art, and he spent the rest of his life researching it. The Rotterdam museum acquired the drawing shortly after the exhibition. In this book leading specialists examine various aspects of this mysterious drawing - its discovery, the scientific and technical research into the materials, and the identity of the artist. Is it a work by Jan van Eyck himself or a workshop assistant, or is it a late fifteenth-century copy of a work by the famous progenitor of Netherlandish painting?

A controversial past : Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and the Second World War by Netherlands) Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in Dutch and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen during the Second World War is an emotionally charged one: a director who bent to the will of the occupying power and patrons who sold works of art to the Nazis. At the same time, the museum played an important role as a centre of art and culture and the guardian of culture in the devastated city of Rotterdam. This Boijmans Study examines the role of the museum and its patrons during the war. The story would not be complete, however, without an account of the museum's spectacular development in the interwar years. To a significant extent, it had the Rotterdam shipping magnates D.G. van Beuningen and Willem van der Vorm and the Haarlem banker Franz Koenigs to thank for the growth of its collection. Their passion for collecting and their patronage are seen against the background of great changes in affluence, which drove a flourishing international art trade. The book ends with an account of seven special cases of research into the sometimes complicated provenance of works of art in the museum's collection.
