The art of devotion in the late Middle Ages in Europe, 1300-1500 by H. W. van Os( Book )

43 editions published in 1994 in English and Dutch and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art for private devotion, or 'props in an intimate theatre of spirituality' as Henk van Os characterizes it, includes some of the most extraordinary as well as the most beautiful objects created in the Late Middle Ages. Selecting the best preserved and most interesting examples of devotional art made in Europe in the two centuries before the Reformation, the author dramatically draws aside the veil on the prayer and meditation 'exercises' which the clergy and high-placed laity once practiced, using these objects as an aid towards their passionately desired goal of communion with Jesus. This book makes available a modern, well informed perspective on medieval religious art and iconography. It covers fundamental attitudes to images, the connection between art, relics, and visions, the relationship of public and private art, the role of local saints and religious movements."--Publisher description

Sienese altarpieces, 1215-1460 : form, content, function by H. W. van Os( Book )

37 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the last years research on altarpieces has developed from an innocent art historical idiosyncracy into a scholarly activity that deserves the gratification 'fashionable.' Also the study of Sienese painting has been taken up by quite a few young scholars who in some cases opened up new perspectives on a rather neglected area of art history. Restoration campaigns have been carried out. Congresses and symposia have been held. Henk van Os has published for twenty years on Sienese painting and its original function. This book on altarpieces summarizes the extensive material published on this subject in the last decades. It opens a new perspective on the history of art of one of the centres of Italian painting thus providing a framework for further studies on this area." -- Cover page 4

Vecchietta and the Sacristy of the Siena Hospital Church ; a study in Renaissance religious symbolism by H. W. van Os( Book )

21 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sienese Ospedale di Sta. Maria della Scala, founded in the 12th century, is a rare example of the survival of medieval charitable institution in our own day. This once wealthy organization, in possession of fortified granaries throughout Tuscany, was a powerful economic, military, social and religious force in the community for hundreds of years. The hospital church too, Sta. Maria Annunziata, had greater importance for the life of the city than that of a mere chapel for patients and visitors. With money left to the foundation by plague victims in 1348, the church acquired several major relics which turned into an important pilgrimage site. In keeping with this function, it also hired some of the best artists of the day to decorate the church and it's chapels. In the 15th century, the artist responsible for most of the work done in the hospital was the greatest Sienese artist of his time, Lorenzo di Pietro, called Vecchietta, who was the author of the magnificent decorations in the cathedral baptistery. The reliquary he made for Sta. Maria Annunziata is now one of the treasures of the Pinacoteca, while his frescoes fr the walls and vault are among the greatest creations of the Sienese Quattrocento. But in the course of the centuries the church was alters drastically, and Vecchietta's unified scheme was lost forever. Yet, ruinous as they are, the frescoes still have some of their brilliant quality, as the new and unique photographs in this book Illustrate."--Jacket

The discovery of the Netherlands : four centuries of landscape painting by Dutch masters by H. W. van Os( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Discovery of the Netherlands, Henk van Os presents the finest examples culled from four centuries of Netherlandish landscape art. The Dutch artists were the first in Europe to reveal the beauty of their country's landscape. They transformed the flat countryside, with its winding waters, farmland, wooded groves and the ever-changing lofty skies into unforgettable scenes framed within their paintings, indeed - into art. Selecting 40 masterworks, Van Os demonstrates that what we currently find 'beautiful' in the Dutch landscape has been largely shaped by these artists." "In her contribution, Louise Fresco explains how these paintings reflect the human presence in the Dutch landscape down through the centuries."--Jacket
