The Northern Renaissance Mini

Description

A popular and accessible introduction to some of the greatest artists of the Northern Renaissance, placing them in the context of their times and explaining their importance to readers today. The Northern Renaissance in Europe was a period of fascinating change. The artistic influence of Italy, the rise of humanism, the new availability of the printed word and a decline in the power of the Catholic church were all reflected in the art of the period. Centred on works by Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein- two of the greatest masters of the Northern Renaissance- this book also discusses paintings, drawings and engravings by artists such as Francois Clouet, Jan Gossaert and Joos van Cleve, across subjects as diverse as portraiture and mythology. The unique relationship of the Royal Collection and the works of Hans Holbein is celebrated in particluar, with his superlative drawings of members of the court of Henry VIII set side-by-side with finished paintings and miniatures of the same sitters; while this rich survey also includes contemporary illuminated manuscripts and early printed books.
