Jan Lievens (1607-1674) was one of the most fascinating and enigmatic Dutch artists of the 17th century. Daring and innovative as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman, he created powerful character studies, genre scenes, landscapes, formal portraits, and religious and allegorical images that were widely praised and valued during his lifetime. This beautiful book, the first overview of the full range of Lievens' career, features more than 50 paintings-many of them newly discovered in private collections-and more than 75 prints and drawings, providing a reassessment of his place in the history of art.
Softcover. Philadelphia PA, Philadelphia Museum of Art , 1st, 1984, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: None, Softcover, 397 pages, 127 color plates, many bw plates. Issued in conjunction with a series of 1984 exhibitions. "The Dutch in the seventeenth century placed a premium on naturalistic accounts of their surroundings, be they in the form of portraits, landscapes, still lifes, or scenes of everyday life -- what we have come to call 'genre' painting. With this art, the painter recorded the look, the manners, the character of those quotidian events, which comprise day-to-day existence." This book features essays on both the artists and on life and culture during this time. The catalogue addresses 127 paintings: first, in color plates, and secondly, with lengthy annotations and small BW illus. The concluding bibliography is substantial. Clean copy.
