Hans Holbein by Oskar Bätschmann ( Book )
30 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Holbein was a hugely ambitious artist, and even during his formative years in Lucerne and Basle undertook to make designs for jewelry, stained glass and woodcuts as well as to paint major altarpieces and portraits. He also carried out several monumental decorative schemes for private houses and civic buildings. This book offers both a remarkable range of extant visual evidence and a rewarding and scholarly account of Holbein's oeuvre in its full historical and artistic contexts. In addition, the authors include a reappraisal of the high reputation in which Holbein was held during the centuries following his death, as illustrated by the opinion expressed by the Elizabethan miniaturist Nicholas Hilliard and the searches undertaken by the French collector Charles Patin, and by the remarks and exertions of the wealthy eighteenth-century dilettante Horace Walpole

Identified by Albrecht Dürer in the sixteenth century as Venice's foremost painter, and hailed in the nineteenth by Jacob Burckhardt as the 'savior' of Venetian painting, Giovanni Bellini is a pivotal figure in the development of Italian Renaissance art. In this lavishly illustrated book renowned art historian Oskar Bätschmann charts the fraught trajectory of Bellini's career, highlighting the crucial works that established his far-reaching influence in the Renaissance. Bellini struggle to break free from the long shadows cast both by his father, Jacopo, and by Bellini's brother-in-law, Andrea Mantegna, and Bätschmann traces out Bellini's development of distinct aesthetic and painting techniques that enabled him to set himself apart. Bellini also insisted on choosing his own subjects and themes regardless of the preferences of his patron Isabella d'Este, and he thus set new standards regarding the independent role of the artist. Anchoring Bätschmann's analysis are a wealth of reproductions that include such famous works as The Feast of the Gods, the various Virgin and Child compositions and Bellini's lauded altarpieces made for the churches of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, S. Giobbe and S. Zaccaria. Drawing on these masterpieces, Bätschmann argues that Bellini's artistry and skillful blending of colors created a new aesthetic more akin to music than to previous approaches to painting. And by leading viewers to understand this subtle, refined sensibility, Bellini made them into more knowledgeable admirers of art
