8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Champollion VINE VOICE on 2 May 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This catalogue is a sumptuous journey into seventeenth century England.
It is perfectly designed and faithfully represents the exhibition. Van Dyck painted all the leading characters and players in what evolved into a turbulent time in English history. The accompanying text provides excellent supporting information about the artist and his subjects giving context to the period. The quality of reproduction of the beautiful and in some cases stunning portraits is first rate. If you did not get the opportunity to visit and view them in person, it is (as disappointingly, there is no DVD,) the next best thing! Highly recommended.

8 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Theodore Matoff on 16 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Briefly, the illustrated paintings are of a good quality and reasonable reproduction.

Unfortunately, not enough of the text, in my view, sufficiently describes Van Dyck's painting techniques, the range of materials and paint available at the beginning of the 17th century in England. There is some brief discussion about his workshop usage, but it could have been enlarged.

As usual with museum curated books about painters, the emphasis is on the names and relationships of the subjects.

Gorgeous Pictures ! 6 Aug. 2014
By notes from - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am quite impressed with the reproductions. several are full page and the colours are superb.You can even see brushstrokes. Though I haven't read through the text yet. Skimming through it I can see it gives quite a detailed explanation of his work and the back stories. I would love to see a book on Van Dyck with full images as Odd Nerdum "Crime and refuge".

Memories of a wonderful exhibition at the Tate 1 Nov. 2013
By Amanda G Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I saw the exhibition that this book was catalogue for at the Tate Britain. It was wonderful and I relived the experience with this book. The reproductions of van Dyck's paintings and essays are absolutely fantastic. If you like sumptuous art of the early Stuart period of English art you'll enjoy this book.
