Jan Steen, painter and storyteller by H. Perry Chapman( Book )

29 editions published in 1996 in 5 languages and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by H. Perry Chapman, Wouter Th. Kloek, and Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr., with contributions by other noted art historians, this book draws on the most recent scholarship and archival research to reassess Steen within the context of seventeenth-century Netherlandish artistic, literary, and cultural movements. A translation of Arnold Houbraken's biography of Steen, written in the eighteenth century, is included, as well as a biographical essay that uses numerous contemporary sources to present the most comprehensive profile on Steen yet published. Other essays discuss Steen's relationship to the theater and to other Dutch painters of the time, his critical reception, and his varied self-portrayals. Fifty of Steen's paintings, chosen to demonstrate his consummate skill as both painter and storyteller, are catalogued in detail

Zeeslagen en zeehelden in de Gouden Eeuw by J. P Sigmond( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in Dutch and English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 17th century the sea was crucially important to all the inhabitants of the Republic of the United Provinces. The wealth of the regents was based on merchant shipping and overseas trade, and the fishing industry was vital for the feeding of the whole population. Safety at sea and protection against enemy invasion were guaranteed by the war fleet. Consequently, the navy and the admirals who commanded the fleet were at the centre of attention. After all, their success of failure determined the fate of many. If they were successful they were worshipped; if they lost. they were abused by the mob. Many paintings, prints, drawings and objects in the Rijksmuseum bear witness to these men and their fortunes at sea. There are splendid images of sea battles and portraits of admirals and their ships. But what do these wonderful pictures tell us? Why were they made? What do they really show, and how did they originate?"--Back cover

5 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ilone et George Kremer ont constitué une collection unique de maitres hollandais. De Rembrandt à Frans Hals en passant par Pieter de Hooch Gerrit Dou et Gerrit van Honthorst, leurs oeuvres sont des pièces historiquement et artistiquement du plus haut intérêt. Accordant également une place importante aux maîtres aujourd'hui moins connus, mais tout aussi essentiels à l'époque, Ilone et George Kremer nous font, pour notre plus grand plaisir, replonger dans cette époque passée, ce monde nouveau de marchands qui collectionnaient et s'instauraient en classe dirigeante à l'égal des aristocraties du reste de l'Europe. Grâce à un ensemble extraordinaire d'une soixantaine d'oeuvres, les Kremer nous font voyager dans le temps au coeur de ce nouveau monde o' le clair-obscur est l'aboutissement d'un parcours qui montre, d'une part les scènes de genre et les rapports sociaux entre les différents métier au XVIIe siècle hollandais, et, d'autre part, comment la bourgeoisie détrôna l'aristocratie dans le monde des amateurs d'art et des collectionneurs L'exposition présente aussi des natures mortes et des paysages, attribut, de cette bourgeoisie, parmi les plus remarquables et les plus représentatif, de l'Âge d'Or hollandais."--Page 4 of cover
