Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This landmark volume is a comprehensive survey of the portrait drawings, paintings, and prints of Anthony van Dyck (1599andndash;1641), one of the most celebrated practitioners of the genre. His supremely elegant style and ability to capture a subjectandrsquo;s inner life made him a favored portraitist among high-ranking figures and royalty across Europe.

and#160;

Showcasing the full range of Van Dyckandrsquo;s fascinating international career with more than 100 works, this catalogue celebrates the artistandrsquo;s versatility, inventiveness, and unique approach to portraiture. Works include preparatory drawings and oil sketches that shed light on Van Dyckandrsquo;s working process, prints that allowed his work to reach a wider audience, and grand painted portraits. Some of the masterpieces are drawn from the exceptional holdings of The Frick Collection, while other works are published here for the first time. Also included are drawings by some of Van Dyckandrsquo;s contemporariesandmdash;including his teacher Peter Paul Rubensandmdash;that illuminate the lineage of his working method. With insightful contributions by international scholars, this unparalleled study of Van Dyck offers a compelling case for the distinctiveness and importance of the artistandrsquo;s work.

Synopsis:

The first major examination of Anthony van Dyckandrsquo;s work as a portraitist and an essential resource on this aspect of his illustrious career

Synopsis:

Lavishly illustrated and impressive in scope, this unparalleled study of Anthony van Dyck offers a compelling case for the distinctiveness and importance of the artistandrsquo;s work.

Synopsis:

Dand#252;rer and Beyond presents a selection of 100 works from the Metropolitan Museum's outstanding collection of German, Swiss, Austrian, and Bohemian drawings. Featured are numerous drawings by Albrecht Dand#252;rer, including his celebrated study sheet with a self-portrait. In addition to drawings by major artists such as Martin Schongauer, Albrecht Altdorfer, Urs Graf, Hans Holbein the Younger, Friedrich Sustris, and Wenceslaus Hollar, the selection also highlights work by lesser known but equally superb draftsmen from the 14th to the end of the 17th century. Richly illustrated and fully documented with artist biographies, comparative illustrations, and enlightening commentary on the variety, quality, and purpose of the featured drawings, this book makes a significant scholarly contribution to a field that has not been widely explored.
