Sumptuous memories : studies in seventeenth-century Dutch tomb sculpture by Frits Scholten( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the conditions for a flourishing art of sculpture in the Netherlands received a serious setback after the Iconoclasm and the Reformation, around 100 sculpted sepulchral monuments were nevertheless erected in the 17th century, ranging from simple memorials to completely free-standing tombs. Behind these remarkable works of art lies a world of prominent patrons and first-class sculptors, of major financial investments and costly materials, of status and personal sorrow." "The patronage of this funerary sculpture is the thread running through this book - the first detailed study of 17th-centry Dutch sculpture for more than 50 years. Who ordered these monuments and why? Who were the artists involved and how did they organise their work? What were the functions and meanings of this sepulchral sculpture? What were the costs involved in erecting the tombs, and how were they viewed by the 17th-century public? These and other questions are examined from various different angles."--BOOK JACKET
Small wonders : late-Gothic boxwood micro-carvings from the low countries by Ont.) Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boxwood prayer beads, rosaries and miniature altarpieces made in Northern Europe during the early 1500s demonstrate the limitless potential of human artistic practice. These tiny masterpieces, small enough to fit in the palm of the hand, depict complex scenes with elegance and precision. Without fail, they inspire viewers to ask how a person could have possibly made them, a question that can only be answered today. Debuting in Toronto, the exhibition Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures brings together for the first time more than 60 rare boxwood carvings from institutions and private collections across Europe and North America. The exhibition offers new insight into the methods of production and cultural significance of these awe-inspiring works of art, highlighting the cutting edge technology used by curators and conservators in their search to understand these miniature sculptures

Art and migration : Netherlandish artists on the move, 1400-1750 = Kunst en migratie : Nederlandse kunstenaars op drift, 1400-1750( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Multiple languages and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the Middle Ages artists from the Low Countries were known to be fond of travelling, as Guicciardini in 'Descrittione di tutti i Paesi Bassi' (Antwerp, 1567) and Karel van Mander in his 1604 'Schilderboeck', already noticed. Much more mobile than their colleagues from other European countries, many Netherlandish artists spread all over Europe; a remarkable number among them achieved great fame as court artists, as the careers of Claus Sluter in Burgundy, Anthonis Mor in Spain, Bartholomeus Spranger or Adriaen de Vries in Prague, Giambologna and Jacob Bijlevelt in Florence demonstrate. Moreover, they exerted considerable influence on the artistic production of their time. Nevertheless most of them sank into oblivion soon after they died. Dutch art history neglected them for a long time as they did not fit into the traditional canon of the Low Countries, nor were they adopted by the art histories of their new homelands. This new NKJ volume is an attempt to change this."--Jaquette

Netherlandish art in its global context = De mondiale context van Nederlandse kunst( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Netherlandish art testifies in various ways to the interconnectedness of the Early Modern world. New trade routes, the international Catholic mission, and a thriving publishing industry made Antwerp and Amsterdam into capitals of global exchange. Netherlandish prints found a worldwide public. At home, everyday lives changed as foreign luxuries, and local copies, became widely available. Eventually, Dutch imitations of Chinese porcelain found their way to colonists in Surinam. This volume of the 'Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek' breaks new ground in applying the aims and approaches of global art history to the Low Countries, with essays ranging from Greenland to South Africa and Mexico to Sri Lanka. The Netherlands, as a fringe area of the Habsburg Empire marked by internal fault lines, demonstrated remarkable artistic flexibility and productivity in the first period of intensive exchange between Europe and the rest of the world

Arts of display = Het vertoon van de kunst( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent wave of renovations of Netherlandish museums inspired this volume of the "Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek," which focuses on display as a key approach to the visual culture of the Netherlands from the early modern period to the present. The volume opens with a critical discussion of the newly reinstalled Rijksmuseum. It includes analyses of the depiction of aggressive interactions with artworks, the ways in which meaning is mobilised by changing displays of paintings by Rubens, and the politics of display in a seventeenth-century palace and in Fascist and De Stijl exhibitions. Display in domestic spaces, including Rembrandt s house and a museum of Asiatic art, is considered, as are the implications of plinths and curtains
1100-1600 by Frits Scholten( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Europe experienced a period of unprecedented cultural vitality. Artistic ideas and techniques were widely shared, on paper -- supported by the invention of printing -- and in person, thanks to ever-growing mobility. At first, the church dominated the life of medieval people and much of the art was religious. In the fifteenth century, mounting interest in classical antiquity and the discovery of distant continents sparked new cultural impulses. With the Renaissance came different ideas about mankind, society and belief -- first in Italy and then in the rest of Europe. The ordinary citizen became more independent and more prosperous, and increasingly commissioned works of art, particularly portraits. Artists grew more self-assured and developed their own style and image. Many aspects of this effervescent European art scene come under the spotlight in this book. At its heart are more than a hundred highlights from the Rijksmuseum's collection: pieces made between 1100 and 1600 in the most important cultural centres of the period. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into a lesser-known area of the Rijksmuseum's collections and a valuable, wide-ranging overview of five centuries of flourishing culture in Europe--Publisher's summary

Netherlandish sculpture of the 16th century = Zestiende-eeuwse beeldhouwkunst uit de Nederlanden( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and Multiple languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the principal arts in the Low Countries during the 16th century, sculpture was an important vehicle for supporting the social, religious and political interests of the church, the court, the cities and the nobility. The period saw the transition from an exuberant Gothic to a classicizing Renaissance style, a transformation in which sculpture assumed a leading role. In addition, statues were central to the cult of saints and commonly triggered iconophobia, which flared so spectacularly in the Beeldenstorm of 1566 and later riots. The essays in this volume cover a wide range of sculptural forms in the Low Countries, such as choir stalls, sacrament houses, carved altarpieces, funerary monuments, mantelpieces and small-scale cabinet sculptures. Issues of function, meaning, patronage and reception are central to these contributions, offering the most complete and accurate overview of the subject to date." -- Publisher's description
