About this title

Synopsis:

This book considers the development of figurative wall painting in the southern Low Countries over a period of two centuries, between circa 1300 and 1500. The region had a long-standing tradition of monumental figurative painting, of which the earliest, romanesque, examples are still preserved at Tournai and Ghent. Despite the central role that figurative wall painting clearly continued to play in the art, propaganda, and liturgy of the courts and churches of the late medieval southern Low Countries, the medium has been largely overlooked in comparison with the attention paid by art historians to other contemporary art forms. A variety of factors have contributed to this neglect, of which the most significant are undoubtedly the random survival, and the often damaged condition, of extant wall paintings, as well as the frequently remote locations and difficulty of access to the buildings housing them. Benign neglect and active vandalism have ensured that only a fraction of the great wall painting ensembles of the late medieval era have survived. Today, only fifty or so individual murals or ensembles of the Late Gothic period -not including a large number of tomb paintings -once in the churches and monasteries, town halls and guild chapels, castles and hotels of the southern Low Countries, have survived the passage of time, wars, iconoclasm, and changing fashions of interior decoration. These include many previously unrecorded wall paintings discovered beneath layers of whitewash in churches and private residences within the last twenty-five years or so, and restored by conservation staff.

PLEASE NOTE FOR SHIPMENTS TO DESTINATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Because we ship by trackable means (UPS to Canada, Global Express Mail through the U.S. Postal Service to all other countries) and because the vast majority of our books far exceed the 2.2-pound reference weight used in the "Shipping Rates" chart, shipping to addresses outside the United States can be extremely expensive. (As examples, the postage cost for a 6-pound parcel is $41.75 to Great Britain, $34.95 to France and $41.20 to Germany.) We will always contact you with the exact shipping charge before sending your international order so you may decide whether to confirm or cancel the order. FOR SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: We ship by United Parcel Service (which does not deliver to post office boxes) at a charge of $10.00 for the first book and $3.00 for each additional book on the same order. We will provide you with the UPS tracking number for your order. Expedited shipping (UPS Next-Day or Second-Day Air) is available to most addresses in the continental United States. The cost of these services is dependent on the weight of the shipment, but we will not exceed the charge of $15.00 for the first book and $9.00 for each additional book without prior confirmation from you.
