In His Milieu

In His Milieu

By Amy Golahny
Book Description

Collected in memory of the Vermeer scholar and Yale economist J. Michael Montias, these essays take into account the latest trends in the field and provide new data on a wide range of topics in Netherlandish art. Themes include the reception of paintings and architecture; art collecting as interpreted through inventories and other documents that reveal modes of display; relationships between patrons and painters; recently found or attributed works of art; artists as teachers; and the art market. Taken together, these focused studies offer fresh perspectives on the historical appreciation and evaluation of art. Drawing upon J.M. Montias' contribution to art history, these 32 essays present new analyses, attributions, and documents on Netherlandish art and material culture - including the work of Vermeer, Rubens, Rembrandt, van Eyck and others - by internationally known scholars of art history and the economics of art

Ter ere van Michael Montias' bijdrage aan de kunstgeschiedenis, eert een internationale groep experts op het gebied van Nederlandse kunst in 32 essays hem om zijn wapenfeiten. Met nieuwe feiten, nog niet eerder gepubliceerde documenten en nieuwe interpretaties vormen deze essays een kritische heroverweging over hoe Nederlandse kunst en architectuur wordt bestudeerd vandaag de dag. Het boek bevat recente studies over het werk van Vermeer, Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Eyck en vele anderen. De thema's in de bundel zijn: de ontvangst van schilderijen en architectuur, het verzamelen van kunst bestudeerd door verschillende verzamelingen, de relaties tussen meesters en hun leerlingen, kunstenaars als leraren en de kunstmarkt. Met het geven van nieuwe inzichten is dit boek een belangrijke bron voor toekomstige studies.
