Gerard ter Borch

Overview

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes Vermeer. Ter Borch’s beautiful and evocative paintings were not only varied in subject but also unparalleled among his peers in capturing the elegance and grace of wealthy burghers, the shimmering surface of satin, the undulating rhythms of translucent lace cuffs, and the nuanced psychological interactions between figures in an interior scene.

Overview

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes Vermeer. Ter Borch’s beautiful and evocative paintings were not only varied in subject but also unparalleled among his peers in capturing the elegance and grace of wealthy burghers, the shimmering surface of satin, the undulating rhythms of translucent lace cuffs, and the nuanced psychological interactions between figures in an interior scene. Indeed, ter Borch’s genre scenes clearly influenced works later painted by Vermeer.
This lovely book—the first major English-language publication on ter Borch’s paintings—presents a selection of some of the most outstanding works from each area of the artist’s career: the remarkable early pictures of the 1630s, the midcareer genre paintings for which he is best known, and the small portraits that brought him prosperity throughout his life. Essays by noted experts on Dutch art discuss ter Borch’s artistic development, the “modern” aspects of his paintings, and his renowned technique for painting satin.
