Most widely held works by Stephanie Buck
Hans Holbein the Younger : painter at the court of Henry VIII by Hans Holbein( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans Holbein's psychological insight, magisterial compositions and cool palette ensure his status as one of the greatest ever European painters. This richly illustrated volume, published to accompany the major exhibition at the Mauritshuis in the Hague, offers readers glorious reproductions of some forty paintings, as well as perceptive and scholarly accounts of Holbein's oeuvre in its full historical and artistic context." "The book emphasises the period beginning in 1532, when Holbein settled in England. From 1536 he was court painter to King Henry VIII (1491-1547), when he immortalized not only the King himself, but several of Henry's prospective spouses, actual wives and children as well. He also drew and painted other prominent figures, including German merchants in London, ambassadors and members of the English court. After almost 400 years, these portraits have lost none of their profoundly expressive power. In addition to faithfully conveying the physical appearance of his sitters, Holbein was among the very first artists to portray people as flesh and blood, as strong and decisive personalities who continue to intrigue and move us."--Jacket
Hans Holbein, 1497/98-1543 by Stephanie Buck( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in 4 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michelangelo's Dream by Michael Bury( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelangelo Buonarroti's (1475-1564) celebrated masterpiece The Dream (Il Sogno) has been described as one of the finest of all Renaissance drawings and it is amongst The Courtauld Gallery's greatest treasures. Based on new research, this illustrated publication examines The Dream in the context of the so-called 'presentation drawings' which Michelangelo gave to Tommaso de' Cavalieri, a young Roman nobleman with whom he had fallen passionately in love." "Further outstanding drawings by Michelangelo as well as letters and poems by the artist and works by his contemporaries are considered in this revealing study of one of the artist's most complex and personal drawings."--Jacket
Temptation in Eden : Lucas Cranach's Adam and Eve by Lucas Cranach( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Temptation in Eden: Lucas Cranach's 'Adam and Eve' is the catalogue of the first exhibition in Britain devoted to Lucas Cranach the Elder (around 1472-1553). Cranach was one of the greatest and most inventive painters of sixteenth-century Germany, and a personal friend of the Reformation theologian Martin Luther. Both the exhibition and this catalogue are focused around Cranach's Adam and Eve of 1526, one of the most beloved paintings in the Courtauld collections, and a work ideally suited to the artist's outstanding gifts as a portrayer of landscape, animals and the female nude." "Beautiful, beguiling and inventive, Adam and Eve depicts the split-second before mankind's fall from grace, and subsequent expulsion from paradise. This fully illustrated book presents new art historical and conservation research exploring the making and the meaning of this iconic image, and its place in Cranach's artistic production. It also provides a rare introduction to this great German artist in English."--Jacket
