The Northern Renaissance : Dürer to Holbein by Kate Heard( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Northern Renaissance in Europe was a period of rapid social and religious change. This book discusses works by Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein - two of the greatest masters of the northern Renaissance - together with a selection of paintings by Lucas Cranach. Encompassing portraiture, religion, mythology, and allegory, these works are examined alongside others by such masters as Francois Clouet, Jan Gossaert and Joos van Cleve. Holbein's superlative drawings of members of the court of King Henry VIII can be seen sideby-side with finished paintings and miniatures of the same sitters; and this survey also includes illuminated manuscripts and early printed books. Exhibition: Queen's Gallery, The Palace of Holyroodhouse (April 2011) and at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace (October 2012)

Bruegel to Rubens : masters of Flemish painting by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is said that much of the greatest art is produced during periods of strife. In the mid-sixteenth century, the Netherlands - the United Provinces in the north (modern Holland) and the Spanish-ruled south (modern Belgium) - was the most sophisticated society in Europe, but its learning and luxury industries were all but annihilated by the so-called Dutch Revolt and the Eighty Years War that followed (1568-1648). Two-thirds of the works discussed here were painted during this turbulent period, including Pieter Bruegel's Massacre of the Innocents of 1567. Other highlights include works by his son Jan Brueghel, while the Twelve Year Truce (1609-21) is celebrated by a group of landscapes (including three by Rubens) depicting the blessings of peace and the fertility of the region." "During the Renaissance the Low Countries attained a flawless technique of painting and the highest standards of craftsmanship. This tradition survived during even the worst years of the war. Everyone is familiar with the Golden Age of Dutch art; this is an opportunity to explore its no less glorious Flemish counterpart."--Jacket
Dutch landscapes by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses examples of the different types of Dutch landscapes painted in the 17th century. From the human narrative within painted landscape ranging from peasants working and relaxing to aristocratic estates where nobles hunted and rode; to Dutch artists discovering the idealised Arcadian landscape influenced by travel to Italy; to the sea which played such a vital role in Dutch consciousness. Dutch masters Isaac van Ostade, Philips Wouwermans, Paulus Potter, Jacob van Ruisdael, the Van de Veldes and Aelbert Cuyp are all included as representative of the Dutch Golden Age.--Publisher
Masters of the everyday : Dutch artists in the age of Vermeer by Desmond Shawe-Taylor( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 185 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
High spirits : the comic art of Thomas Rowlandson by Thomas Rowlandson( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The absurdities of fashion, the perils of love, political machinations and royal intrigue were the daily subject matter of Thomas Rowlandson, one of the leading caricaturists of Georgian England. Rowlandson was working at a time when English satirical prints were prized by collectors across Europe. A number of the works in the exhibition were purchased by George, Prince of Wales, later Prince Regent and King George IV. Ironically the Prince was often the butt of caricaturists' jokes and sometimes tried to prevent the publication of images that he felt were particularly offensive. Through Rowlandson's drawings and prints, the exhibition examines life at the turn of the 19th century. 0Exhibition: The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, UK (11.2013)

Splendours of the subcontinent : a prince's tour of India, 1875-6 by Kajal Meghani( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In October 1875, Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, set off on a four-month tour of the Indian subcontinent. During his travels the Prince was presented with a wide array of beautiful gifts ranging from brooches to swords and from military figures to an articulated golden fish. Each item was intricately wrought, often in precious metals with jewel-encrusted details. Not only did the presentation of these pieces forge a personal link between the Prince and the gift-giver, but as a collection, these exquisite objects proved to be highly influential on European taste and design. This ... publication presents the reader with a miscellany of South Asian works of art, through which the author tells the story of the Prince's journey and the history of these intriguing objects"--Jacket

"The Royal Collection of drawings and watercolours, comprising around 40,000 items, has been formed over the last five centuries. The first drawings recorded in the collection, in 1547, were the portrait studies by Hans Holbein that are still among the treasures of the Royal Library; and the collection continues to grow, one of the most recent additions being a portrait of Lord Rothschild by David Hockney, presented by the artist in 2003. This book is a survey of the collection, illustrating its many strengths and explaining how it attained its distinctive form."--Jacket
George III & Queen Charlotte : patronage, collecting and court taste by Royal Collection (Great Britain)( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'madness' of George III is the one fact about the King that everybody knows. Some might also say that George III 'lost' the American colonies. Few would be able to add that George III founded the Royal Academy of Arts, that he was a patron of Samuel Johnson and the astronomer William Herschel, and a king who 'gloried in the name of Briton'. Among his contemporaries George III was noted as an outstanding bibliophile and a renowned connoisseur of music, science, painting and architecture. ... Published to coincide with the major exhibition at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, George III & Queen Charlotte: patronage, collecting and court taste reconsiders the role of George III, Queen Charlotte and their family in encouraging the arts within the court and in society as a whole during the 50 years of the King's reign. Illustrated by a superb range of works of art in the Royal Collection, the book reveals aspects of George III as father, monarch, and man of letters that have generally been overlooked, and demonstrates his true importance as one of the most wide-ranging, influential and far-sighted collectors of his day. It is an important contribution to studies of the fine and decorative arts in the Georgian period, and will be an essential source of referene for both academics and collectors. -- Book jacket
