Rubens & Brueghel : a working friendship by Anne T Woollett( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship is the first international loan exhibition devoted to the artists' collaborative works and an investigation of their working methods. Assembled here are some of the most important works of Brueghel and Rubens's partnership - from the early war themes, to mythological landscapes and allegories, to iconic paintings of the Madonna and Child surrounded by garlands of fruit and flowers - as well as a select group of works executed with other collaborators, including Hans Rottenhammer, Hendrick de Clerck, Hendrick van Balen, and Frans Snyders. Together, these paintings reveal the nature of collaboration as practiced in the Netherlands in this period. What also emerges is the unique character of Brueghel and Rubens's conceptual alliance - a rare partnership of equals, a complex and reciprocal relationship, that gave rise to works of unparalleled delight."--BOOK JACKET
Gerrit Dou, 1613-1675 : master painter in the age of Rembrandt by Ronni Baer( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's first pupil, was lauded at an early age by his contemporaries as a model for other painters. His works, sought by collectors throughout Europe, fetched extremely high prices well into the eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, Dou's reputation had fallen into eclipse, and the works of a master whose fame had once equaled that of Rembrandt appeared only rarely, if at all, in exhibitions of Dutch art. In the last thirty years scholars have begun to reevaluate the artistic achievement of Gerrit Dou. This book, which accompanies the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to Dou's works, provides an opportunity to reassess the artist's achievements."--Jacket

A choice collection : seventeenth-century Dutch paintings from the Frits Lugt Collection by Quentin Buvelot( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated volume offers the reader a selection of the most beautiful Dutch seventeenth-century paintings from the Lugt Collection. The great connoisseur Frits Lugt (1884-1970) is today primarily recognised as a collector of drawings and prints by Dutch and Flemish masters. Far less is known, however, about his important collection of paintings." "There can be no doubt that Lugt had a taste for the unusual in the oeuvre of famous artists, and that he had a marked preference for landscape paintings. The works - mostly executed in a small format - are not only well preserved but also of exceptional quality, designed to fit perfectly in the intimacy of a home."--Jacket
Girl with a pearl earring : Dutch paintings from the Mauritshuis( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume will mark the first time Johannes Vermeer's iconic painting will be seen in the Southeast. The painting headlines the exhibition, which highlights the artistic genius of Dutch Golden Age painters, including Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals and Jan Steen, through the presentation of more than 35 exceptional works. Through landscapes and portraits, this book will explore the idea that Dutch artists more readily embraced paintings of everyday subjects than their southern European contemporaries, focusing on capturing commonplace scenes of daily life. Dutch artists not only recorded representations of the domestic interior, still lifes and boisterous crowds, but often imbued these scenes with moral undertones and humorous, sarcastic wit

Dutch cityscapes of the Golden Age by Ariane van Suchtelen( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dutch society in the seventeenth century was predominantly urban. The political, economic, and military power of the cities exerted a strong influence on national government. The pride people took in the beauty and prosperity of their cities, with architecture both old and new, is reflected in the popularity of the cityscape." "Artists depicted cities in many ways, beginning with the early city profile: a view from some distance of an entire city in silhouette. Such profile views sometimes served as the backdrop to a historical event depicted in the foreground. In the course of the seventeenth century, landscape painters increasingly included distant views of cities in their panoramas, in which the city's picturesque location - often on the banks or a river - played an important role. After 1650 many more artists devoted themselves to the cityscape, exploring the urban space within the town walls in order to pain views of canals, squares, and important buildings."--Jacket
Frans van Mieris, 1635-1681 by Frans van Mieris( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frans van Mieris the Elder is one of the most renowned representatives of the Dutch fijnschilders (fine painters). In their works, these seventeenth-century painters attempted to attain a perfect visual reproduction of materials - so perfect, in fact, that detecting an individual brushstroke in their paintings is almost, if not entirely, impossible. Not until several decades had passed would museum visitors and art historians once again appreciate the qualities of Van Mieris and the other fine painters. This beautifully designed and easy-to-read book includes all of Van Mieris' thirty-five paintings and ten of his drawings reproduced in full colour and accompanied by brief explanatory texts. Also included are essays about the artist's life, the development of his oeuvre, and appreciation of it down through the centuries
Dutch portraits : the age of Rembrandt and Frans Hals by Rudolf E. O Ekkart( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dutch Portraits is a detailed, richly illustrated book on portrait paintings in Holland's Golden Age. This is one of the most fascinating phenomena in Western art history, since these paintings are characterised by a marked degree of realism, enormous diversity, and above all superb quality. The main theme of this catalogue, published to accompany the exhibition of the same name in London and The Hague, is the development of portraiture in the Northern Netherlands. It presents a very wide range of portraits: from those depicting individuals and couples, children and families to group portraits including militia and regent pieces." "This readable catalogue brings together over sixty paintings by a total of 29 masters, in colour reproductions furnished with explanatory texts. The book opens with introductory essays on the development of portrait paintings in the Northern Netherlands and on the subject of dress in portraits. This first survey of portrait paintings in the Golden Age provides a unique portrait of the people who shaped and lived through this epoch."--Jacket
In the light of Vermeer: five centuries of painting by Netherlands) Mauritshuis (Hague( Book )

5 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Masters of the everyday : Dutch artists in the age of Vermeer by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the seventeenth century, Dutch artists were unparalleled in their dedication to depicting ordinary people doing everyday things. Genre painting was the preeminent expression of this dedication, offering candid glimpses into the peasant cottages and village courtyards of the Dutch Golden Age, each painting lit with the period's vibrant color palette and rich with radiant natural light. This superb collection by the curators of an accompanying exhibition focuses on a selection of thirty-six works of Dutch genre painting from the Royal Collection's holdings. Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, Gerrit Dou, Gabriel Metsu, and Pieter de Hooch are among the masters whose works are finely reproduced here. While the subject matter may be ordinary--the preparation of food, the bustle of a busy market, the enjoyment of taverns and town festivities--the meticulously documented details often allude to a work's deeper meaning or to moral messages that would have been familiar to the contemporary viewer

Nicolaes Maes : Dutch master of the Golden Age by Ariane van Suchtelen( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a close look at the art of Dutch Golden Age painter Nicolaes Maes (1634-1693). One of Rembrandt's most talented students, Maes began by painting biblical scenes in the style of his famous teacher. He later produced extraordinary genre pieces, in which the closely observed actions of the main figure, often a woman, have a hushed, almost monumental character. Maes also depicted mothers with children or older women praying or sleeping; such works have placed him among the most popular painters of the Dutch Golden Age. From around 1660, Maes turned exclusively to portraiture, and his elegant style attracted wealthy and eminent clients from Dordrecht and Amsterdam. This generously illustrated volume is the first in English to cover the full range of his repertoire. The authors - curators from the National Gallery, London, and the Mauritshuis, The Hague - bring extensive knowledge to bear for the benefit of specialists and the general public
