Masterpieces in Detail : Early Netherlandish Art from van Eyck to Bosch, Hardback Book

Masterpieces in Detail : Early Netherlandish Art from van Eyck to Bosch Hardback



The longer we gaze at the paintings of the old masters, the more we appreciate the subtlety and artistry of the painters who created them.

This beautiful book offers readers an opportunity to learn and study the art of Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and many other masters of this period and region.

It also explores their influence on later artists from the Baroque period.

Each of the works is briefly presented along with its historical and contextual background and importance.

Then in a series of full-page illustrations, specific details are enlarged to guide the reader carefully and thoughtfully through the piece's nuances and often overlooked features.

The result is the next best thing to a private viewing at a museum - a truly sensuous and emotional experience that will engage both the novice and the expert.

Till-Holger Borchert's texts are informative and engaging as he shares his singular passion for these great works in a magnificent book that will inspire viewers to form their own opinions and exercise their own powers of observation within the context of this important period in art history
