"The Northern Renaissance, one of the most glorious periods in art history, boasts such beloved geniuses as Bosch, Durer, van Eyck, Holbein, Bruegel, and Cranach. The painting, sculpture, and graphic works of these artists are fundamental to the understanding and development of Western art from 1350 to the present day." "Snyder's classic survey provides an authoritative and absorbing assessment of Northern achievements, ranging from Bohemian court art under Charles IV in Prague in the 1350s to the open sale of pictures as commodities on Antwerp's art market in the 1560s. In rich detail but with utter clarity, this book tells the stories of the artists and the patrons who created this extraordinary flowering of art." Now illustrated in full color throughout, this new edition has been carefully revised and updated. Almost 680 illustrations, more than 250 in full color, are each keyed to the text, providing visual documentation. The volume also includes notes to the text, maps, a timetable of the major artistic, political, religious, and scientific achievements of the period, a genealogy of the house of Valois, and a freshly updated bibliography.
