Editorial Reviews

The Atlantic Monthly - Jed Perl
"In his catalogues, Campbell, assisted by contributions from many of the best scholars in the field, helps us understand how such astonishing works could be so undervalued."—Jed Perl, The Atlantic Monthly
Library Journal
Campbell and a knowledgeable team of contributors have written this informative study of European tapestries of the Renaissance. Concentrating on tapestries made for royal and papal collections in Italy, France, Brussels, and the Netherlands from 1460 to 1560, this catalog accompanies an immensely popular exhibit that ran this spring at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Campbell is curator of textiles. The extensive essays fill a void in the literature by synthesizing scholarship published thus far only in journals and by providing a detailed examination of this important area of tapestry production. A generous selection of black-and-white and color photographs illustrates the points made in the text. Because the level of detail in the discussions and the sophistication of the language make the text most suitable for scholarly readers or those with some art historical background, this is recommended for large general collections and specialized libraries. Kathryn Wekselman, M.Ln., Cincinnati Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
This rare exhibition (at the Met in 2002) awakened people's interest in an under-appreciated art form with its display of very big, very fine tapestries from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, each of which is beautifully reproduced here, with lots of details. The suitably grand catalogue of the show (it's 10.25x12.25<">) contains long essays on topics that include tapestry production and patronage in Northern Europe, France, and Italy; the rise of Brussels in the 15th and 16th centuries; Bernaert van Orley's transformation of tapestry design in Brussels; and the Acts of the Apostles tapestries and Raphael's cartoons. Campbell is a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
