Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

In this series accomplished authors accurately cover a range of subjects using up-to-date methodologies and impressive visual formats. This is the first book to present a broad overview of the art of the Renaissance from Northern Europe within its historical context. KEY TOPICS: It includes well known works and artists as well as a diverse selection of novel and intriguing images. It discusses issues and ideas of interest today, such as the status of women, elite vs. popular inspiration, and art as an instrument of propaganda, among others and provides comprehensive coverage of the Netherlands, Germany, and France in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Book News Annotation:

Rather than presenting a broad, comprehensive survey of the period, Harrison (art history, U. of Massachusetts-Amherst) examines the state of mind and the cultural moment that produced the breathtaking art of 15th-and 16th- century Flanders, the Netherlands, France, and Germany. Well-illustrated, and a lot of value for the money, like others in the series which is produced by Calmann and King, Ltd., London, and co- published in the US by Prentice-Hall and Abrams.
