Petrus Christus : Renaissance master of Bruges by Maryan Wynn Ainsworth( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is an important new account of the life and work of the Flemish master Petrus Christus. It is the first volume to focus specifically on the physical characteristics of his works as criteria for judging attribution, dating, and the extent to which he was indebted to Jan van Eyck and other artists for the development of his technique and style. The author's aim is to examine how certain works were made in order to solve some rather traditional questions of connoisseurship. Recent technical and archival investigations, the results of which are published here together for the first time, form the basis of a sophisticated reassessment of Christus. His relationship with van Eyck's workshop is explored. There is a careful description of his working methods, including his use of underdrawings and his exploration of perspective. The results of dendrochronological analyses of many of his panels are also given. As important as this technical and art-historical evaluation is the social and biographical background that is provided. Christus is placed in the context of fifteenth-century Bruges, a wealthy and powerful city under the rule of the dukes of Burgundy. its status as a ducal seat fostered a lively cultural life, and patrons for artistic undertakings were also found in the relatively large number of well-to-do citizens and foreign merchants who lived there. The economic, social, and political forces that affected Bruges are described, as is their impact on the city's community of artists, which included Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling
Bruges and the Renaissance : Memling to Pourbus( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated and wide-ranging study brings Bruges' Renaissance to life. It opens in the 1480s, when artist Gerard David settled in Bruges and Hans Mernling was painting some of his greatest masterpieces, and ends in 1584, when Pieter Pourbus, the most important painter working in Bruges in the second half of the sixteenth century, died in the port city." "Essays by a team of experts explore the artistic developments of the intervening nine decades, with a focus on the spread of ideas from the Italian Renaissance to northern Europe. Through trade, the migration of artists, and the circulation of art works, new intellectual and aesthetic standards seeped into local artists' work, resulting in the glorious images that are so beautifully reproduced in this volume."--Jacket
