Flemish Paintings in America: A Survey of Early Netherlandish and Flemish Paintings in The...

Guy C. Bauman, Editor, Walter A. Liedtke, With ABRAMS $145 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8109-3319-4
Reproducing 502 Flemish and early Netherlandish paintings from more than 100 North American museums and private collections, this survey is a marvelous time capsule offering a glimpse of a vanished world. Along with Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Wedding Feast , Hieronymus Bosch's grisly allegory Death and the Miser , Peter Paul Rubens' Hero and Leander , Anthony van Dyck's naked, extremely naturalistic Andromeda , Hans Memling's panel of two saints in a verdant Arcadian landscape and masterworks by Jan Van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden, there are delightful surprises by scores of less well-known artists. Notable among the 147 color plates are Adriaen Brouwer's disheveled Pancake Maker , Joachim Patinir's panoramic scenes of the busy port of Antwerp and Quentin Massys's broadly satirical Ill-Matched Lovers. Liedtke, a curator at Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art, leads a team of Belgian, American and British specialists in illuminating this feast. (Nov.)
