About this title


Book by Marrow, James

From Library Journal:

The inadequate appreciation of 15th-century Dutch manuscript illumination is handsomely redressed in this superbly illustrated and amply documented catalog. In addition to precise codicological data and excellent color and black-and-white reproductions from each of the exhibition's 109 manuscripts, an individual essay scrutinizes the content, style, and probable place of origin and patronage of each work. In his informative introduction, Marrow provides a cogent analysis of the manuscripts' social and spiritual environment, an understanding of the formal development of the style, and an appreciation of its diverse local aspects and distinctive masters. Twelve additional essays further refine our comprehension of the tradition's chronological phases, anonymous artistic personalities, and regional subdivisions. Although the work has been produced with a sumptuousness of the sort associated with coffee-table books, this scholarly catalog is, in fact, a noteworthy contribution to the history of early Netherlandish painting.
