Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Among the many treasures of The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg is its remarkable collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Flemish paintings—more than five hundred in all—including key works by Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Snyders, and Teniers. Forming the core of the Hermitages Flemish collection, these works were acquired from all over Europe by the Empress Catherine II, and the collection has continued to develop. This magnificent volume is the first to provide detailed information in English with illustrations for every work.

More than 140 artists are represented in the collection and in this complete catalogue, which provides a comprehensive picture of the golden age of Flemish painting. Individual illustrated entries for every work are accompanied by detailed indexes and provenance information that provides a unique view of the history of collecting in Russia.

Synopsis:

The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg houses a relatively small but choice collection of 16th- to 19th-century British paintings, among them Thomas Gainsborough's vibrant Portrait of a Lady in Blue (c. 1770) and his rival Sir Joshua Reynolds' vast Infant Hercules Strangling the Serpents (c. 1786), commissioned by the Russian Empress Catherine II and symbolizing a young Russia's growing strength. 135 paintingsworks by artists from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Walesare presented in this comprehensive catalogue. Also included are portraits from the famed War Gallery created by English painter George Dawe, who was awarded a prestigious commission to produce more than 300 images of Russian generals for the Gallery of 1812 in the historic Winter Palace, now part of the museum complex.
