Art in the Making PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Art in the Making free pdf "Art in the Making: Rembrandt", which appeared in 1988, was a groundbreaking publication. The first of the award-winning "Art in the Making" series of catalogues and related exhibitions, it presented the results of research into the techniques of European painting, carried out by the National Gallery's conservation, curatorial and scientific specialists. The series proved enormously popular with the public and professional colleagues alike, and, with the exception of Rembrandt, its catalogues have never been out of print. Publication of this new edition marks the four-hundredth anniversary of the artist's birth in 1606. The book takes account of significant developments in Rembrandt scholarship since 1988, and addresses problems of attribution that were hardly touched on in the first edition. All the works originally catalogued are included here, although some have been reassessed, and new entries have been added for paintings once attributed to Rembrandt but now considered to be by other hands. What remains the same is the scrupulous technical examination of every work that forms the basis for the descriptions of technique and arguments for attribution. Introductory essays cover the artist's studio and working methods, the training of painters in seventeenth-century Holland, and Rembrandt's materials and technique. The essays are followed by catalogue entries on 21 paintings firmly attributed to Rembrandt, and six now assigned to followers. Tables provide convenient summaries of the available data on grounds, medium and pigments, and are followed by notes, bibliography and glossary, together with an overview of 17th-century technical literature on painting materials in the Netherlands.
