The golden age of Dutch art : painting, sculpture, decorative art by Judikje Kiers( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 911 libraries worldwide
"To mark the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Dutch National Art Gallery (later the Rijksmuseum), it was decided to bring together all the greatest masterpieces of the Golden Age, both those that remained at home and those that had been dispersed throughout the world, to make a definitive exhibition celebrating that wonderful century. This book is a record of that exhibition and a way of giving it permanent form. All the exhibits are reproduced in colour and linked by brief commentaries providing information on the artists, their social background and patronage. It includes not only paintings but also examples of the applied arts of the time, from silver by the brothers Van Vianen and tapestries by Francois Spierings to exquisite pieces of Delftware."--Jacket
Jan Steen, painter and storyteller by H. Perry Chapman( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 848 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

5 editions published in 1987 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 814 libraries worldwide
The art of devotion in the late Middle Ages in Europe, 1300-1500 by H. W. van Os( Book )
17 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 701 libraries worldwide
"Art for private devotion, or 'props in an intimate theatre of spirituality' as Henk van Os characterizes it, includes some of the most extraordinary as well as the most beautiful objects created in the Late Middle Ages. Selecting the best preserved and most interesting examples of devotional art made in Europe in the two centuries before the Reformation, the author dramatically draws aside the veil on the prayer and meditation 'exercises' which the clergy and high-placed laity once practiced, using these objects as an aid towards their passionately desired goal of communion with Jesus. This book makes available a modern, well informed perspective on medieval religious art and iconography. It covers fundamental attitudes to images, the connection between art, relics, and visions, the relationship of public and private art, the role of local saints and religious movements."--Publisher description

21 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Dutch and held by 588 libraries worldwide
Rembrandt, the printmaker by Erik Hinterding( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 543 libraries worldwide
"This catalogue, compiled by leading authorities, aims to illustrate a broad and representative selection of Rembrandt's finest prints. New areas of research have opened up in recent years, allowing us to follow the progress of his work on each plate and revealing how and when he revised the images at various times during his life. The papers he used are studied and previously unknown watermarks are reproduced. The roles played by Rembrandt's preparatory oil sketches and drawings are also now better understood, and these new insights are presented to a wider public for the first time in this lavishly illustrated volume."--Jacket

Aelbert Cuyp by Aelbert Cuyp( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 503 libraries worldwide
"Forty-five of Cuyp's most distinguished paintings and sixty-four drawings are reproduced here in brilliant color, accompanied by more than 100 comparative illustrations. Their appeal lies not only in the subject matter but also in their distinctive style, for Cuyp infused his arcadian subjects and river views with a sensitivity to light and a clarity of form that is firmly grounded in reality." "Published to accompany an international touring exhibition, the book features insightful essays by an international team of curators and scholars that discuss Cuyp's work in the context of his time, personal background, artistic development, patrons, use of costume, and artistic techniques."--Jacket

Rembrandt, the late works by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 442 libraries worldwide
"From the mid-1650s until his death at age sixty-three, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) generated a remarkable body of work as he searched for a new, painterly, and expressive style. His later works demonstrate his mastery, skillfulness, and exceptional ability to render the effects of light, and they have since defined his image as an artist. Rembrandt gleaned inspiration from his direct study of nature, exalting the humble, the mundane, and even the ugly, particularly in his self-portraits and works based on his everyday surroundings. His intimate pictures of figures from history, often portrayed in austere or introspective attitudes, are created with extraordinary sensitivity. This handsome volume includes superb reproductions of some of Rembrandt’s most recognizable paintings, alongside etchings and drawings in various media that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium. Through a series of thematic essays, the authors draw on new research to examine Rembrandt’s iconographic, stylistic, and technical innovations and underscore how his work in one medium influenced his work in others. This captivating book is the first to focus exclusively on the paintings, drawings, and prints that Rembrandt produced during the final, most creative phase of his career"
