"No old master or modern artist begins to match the variety of landscapes Jacob van Ruisdael (1628/9-1682) depicted during the course of his career, nor his grandeur of conception and skill in portraying natural phenomena. His themes span identifiable towns, cities, and castles; rural scenes, both cultivated and wild; seascapes and shore scenes; rivers, bridges and sluices; rushing torrents and Scandinavian waterfalls. In this illustrated book, Seymour Slive demonstrates Ruisdael's unrivalled range and quality through an evocation of his career not only as a painter, but also as a draftsman and etcher. Slive discusses the artist's clientele, early collectors and critics, as well as his influence on another preeminent landscapist, John Constable. / Seymour Slive is Gleason Professor of Fine Arts emeritus at Harvard University and former Director of the Harvard University Art Museums. His numerous publications include Dutch Painting, 1600-1800 and Jacob van Ruisdael: A Complete Catalogue of the Paintings, Drawings, and Prints, both published by Yale University Press." - Publisher.
