Book Description

13 Dec 2010
Published to accompany the exhibition at the Groeninge Museum, Bruges, this volume celebrates and examines the tremendous influence the Flemish Primitives had on their eastern neighbours in Central Europe, from 1430 to 1530, focusing in particular on the pre-eminent Flemish and German masters of this period, Jan van Eyck and Albrecht Dürer. In addition to well-known (and less well-known) works by Flemish Primitives, the book also reproduces a selection of artistic gems by less celebrated painters from Germany, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland and Estonia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of art 12 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
Till-Holger Borchert and an international team of experts are responsible for a truly extraordinary exhibition at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges that is resumed in this catalogue. Together with a garland of images and an authoritative text this sourcebook is a vehicle to explore the effects of the early Netherlandish painters on contemporary artists in the countries of Southern Europe. The subject has received increasing attention over the last century and has been debated on specialized journals. You may also read this book in conjunction with "Northern Renaissance Art" (Oxford History of Art) by Susie Nash and the beautiful "From Flanders to Florence: The Impact of Netherlandish Painting, 1400-1500" by Paula Nuttal to see only a fraction of stunning paintings scattered between hundreds of museums and institutions. The catalogue has been designed to identify the influence on German masters as well as on masters of the surrounding areas. The text is pervading the book and illuminates the paintings reproduced. One point of concern is the number of images in every page, the size and their quality. Despite most of the works exposed in Bruges received cleaning and/or restoring with impressive results most of the images are reproducing paintings before the cleaning and restoration process. In addition the book has inadequate image quality even if it is well designed and printed. This is one case that deserves attention: great exhibitions need to be complemented by a photographic campaign that documents the actual status of the material on view and archive images should be used for scientific purpose and for documentation of the previous conditions but not as a substitute of the newly made. This exceptional book is a splendid achievement and a must for anyone interested on the subject.
