This long-awaited publication presents one of the world's finest collections of Dutch paintings, which come together for the first time in one volume as a major addition to existing scholarship on Dutch art.
The volume presents over 100 paintings in colour, many including colour details. Each painting is accompanied by an artist's biography, a detailed commentary, technical analysis, endnotes, bibliographic references, an exhibition history and full provenance. Over 140 comparative illustrations provide vital art historical context to the featured paintings.
The range and scope of the works presented in this volume is truly impressive, from sedate church interiors and conventional landscape subjects to bawdy peasant interiors and magnificent still lifes.
