Vermeer. The Complete Works (Hardcover): Karl Schutz Vermeer. The Complete Works (Hardcover)
Karl Schutz 1
R804 R635 Discovery Miles 6 350 Save R169 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book brings together the complete catalogue of Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), presenting the calm yet compelling scenes so treasured in galleries across Europe and the United States into one monograph of utmost reproduction quality. With new photography of many works, Vermeer's restrained but richly evocative repertoire of domestic actions-ranging from letter writing to music making to preparations in the kitchen-unfolds in generous format. Numerous details emphasize the artist's remarkable ability not only to bear witness to the trends and trimmings of the Dutch Golden Age but also to encapsulate an entire story in just one transient gesture, expression, or look. In his lifetime, Vermeer's fame barely extended beyond his native Delft and a small circle of patrons. After his death, his name was largely forgotten, with works outside of Holland even misattributed to other artists. It was not until the mid-19th century that Vermeer came to the attention of the international art world, which suddenly looked upon his narrative minutiae, meticulous textural detail, and majestic planes of light, and spotted a forgotten master. Today, Vermeer's works have inspired a New York Times best seller and a film starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth not to mention record visitor numbers at art institutions from Amsterdam to Washington, DC; and special crowd-control measures at the Mauritshuis, The Hague, where thousands flock to catch a glimpse of the enigmatic and enchanting Girl with a Pearl Earring, also known as the "Dutch Mona Lisa."

English Description: Group portraits are an exceptional form of Dutch painting that particularly took hold in the burgeoning metropolis of Amsterdam. This volume focuses on the 17th century, the "Golden Age" of Dutch painting, and 11 famous group portraits that perfectly capture the essence of Dutch society at that time. The group portraits were commissioned for special occasions and displayed prominently as commemorations on the premises of a variety of institutions that played an important role in the political and economic life of the city. Painters include Adriaen Backer, Frans Badens, Ferdinand Bol, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout, Govert Flinck, Bartholomeus van deer Helst, Nicolaes Eliasz Pickenoy, and Dirck van Santvoort. German text. German description: Das Gruppenportrat stellt eine herausragende hollandische Bildform dar, die besonders in der aufbluehenden Metropole Amsterdam Fua fasste. Im Zentrum des Katalog-Buches steht das 17. Jahrhundert, das so genannte "Goldene Zeitalter" und elf beruehmte Gruppenportrats, die das damalige Wesen der hollandischen Gesellschaft vollkommen ausdruecken. Regelmaaig lieaen sich Mitglieder des vermogenden Stadtbuergertums in voller Lebensgroae vereint darstellen, wie sie von Amts wegen gemeinsame Aufgaben wahrnehmen. Der besondere Reiz dieser Bilder aus dem 17. Jahrhundert besteht nicht zuletzt in ihrem unmittelbaren Bezug zur Gegenwart. Was damals in einem vom monarchischen Absolutismus gepragten Europa eine Ausnahme darstellte, bildet im heutigen politischen und wirtschaftlichen Leben die Regel: Organisationen und Firmen werden von Personengruppen als Kommissionen, Kuratorien oder Aufsichtsrate gefuehrt. Damit schlagen diese Bilder eine Bruecke, die Vergan- genheit und heutige Lebenswelt unmittelbar verbindet. Die Gruppenportrats wurden zu besonderen Anlassen in Auftrag gegeben und zur Erinnerung in den Reprasentationsraumen der Institutionen aufgehangt. Sie gelangten nach deren Auflosung in das Eigentum der Stadt Amsterdam, einen Teil bildet die Schuttersgalerij im Amsterdams Historisch Museum. Aus diesem Bestand wurden die elf Bilder der Ausstellung ausgewahlt, die von den Malern Adriaen Backer, Frans Badens, Ferdinand Bol, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout, Govert Flinck, Bartholomeus van der Helst, Nicolaes Eliasz Pickenoy und Dirck van Santvoort stammen.
