about

Reference materials on European painting of the seventeenth century are generally restricted to a roster of a few dozen great masters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Caravaggio, and Velazquez, but this Golden Age produced hundreds of prodigiously talented painters. Almost 300--mainly Dutch, Flemish, Italian, and Spanish--are here given biographical coverage based on an extensive bibliography of contemporaneous, later, and recent scholarship. Attention is focused on training, travel, commissions, stylistic influences and legacy, and pupils. For each artist, the oeuvre is analyzed with reference to major works, and a detailed list of additional works with museum holdings is appended. References are keyed to the backmatter bibliography, and museum citations refer to a list of 183 collections around the world. An appendix groups the featured artists by nationality, and an index completes the volume.

Editorial Reviews

?The first one-volume biographical dictionary in English to provide extensive summaries of the lives of nearly three hundred painters who were active in Europe during the seventeenth century. An extraordinary accomplishment and should be included in all art and humanities, as well as general, collections. It holds particular promise for anyone about to enter upon a pilgrimage to major art collections and museums at home and abroad.??RQ Summer 1994
