about

This handsome book explores the life and work of a little-known, immensely talented early Renaissance painter from Estonia

This handsome volume is the first in English devoted to Michel Sittow (c. 1469–1525), an artist from Estonia who trained in the tradition of early Netherlandish painting.  Sittow worked for many high-profile patrons, including Isabella of Castile in Spain, and specialized in beautiful small devotional works and portraits; the portraits, in particular, are artistically sophisticated paintings that have been characterized as among the finest of their time.  Featuring approximately twenty works attributed to Sittow, as well as paintings by his contemporaries, including Hans Memling and Juan de Flandes, this book provides an important opportunity to learn about Sittow’s oeuvre and to appreciate it within the cultural context of his homeland as well as the broader milieu of early northern Renaissance art.
John Oliver Hand is curator of northern Renaissance paintings at the National Gallery of Art. Greta Koppel is curator of Dutch and Flemish paintings at the Art Museum of Estonia, Tallinn. Till-Holger Borchert is director, Musea Brugge, Belgium. Anu Mänd is head of the Institute of History, Archaeology, and Art History, Tallin...
