Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden (c. 1400- 1464) was one of the most influential artists of the Northern Renaissance. With his dramatic tableaux and austere, almost sculptural figures, van der Weyden achieved an unprecedented emotional clarity in both his religious paintings and secular portraits. This sumptuously produced and gorgeously illustrated book is the first comprehensive study of van der Weyden's work in 25 years. Synthesizing the latest scholarship and reproducing every known painting as well as hundreds of details and comparative works, it will become the standard reference on the artist for decades to come. 500 illustrations, 350 in full color, 1011/4 x 1333/8 " DIRK DE VOS is curator of the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium, and a specialist in Flemish painting of the 15th and early 16th centuries.From Library Journal:
This large and beautiful book reflects the careful scholarship and exhaustive research of De Vos, curator at the Groeningemuseum in Bruges. His comprehensive work details virtually everything currently known about the life and work of the 15th-century Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden. In addition to historical summaries and discussions of scholarly issues raised by the study of van der Weyden's work, a catalog of all paintings currently attributed to him is provided. Full-page and detail illustrations and information on technical aspects, provenance, exhibitions, and published literature are provided for each painting. The historical and issue chapters are organized so that there is some repetition of topics, and the translation results at times in somewhat awkward prose. However, this work will be useful to both scholars and interested general readers for its comprehensiveness, currency, and visual beauty.
