Item description for Masters and Mills: Van Rembrandt tot Mondriaan by Charles Dumas...
In 2007 it is six hundred years since the first polder windmills were built in the Netherlands. Reason enough for The Dutch Windmill Society to proclaim this year 'The Year of the Windmill'. One of the highlights of 'The Year of the Windmill' will be an exhibition and an accompanying book about windmills in painting. Subsequently, paintings, watercolours, drawings and etchings from between the seventeeth and twentieth centuries will offer a stunning cross-section of the immense variety of works in this field. The publication also includes an art historical monograph about windmills in painting. Attention is drawn, for instance, to Rembrandt's etchings and drawings of windmills. Their development in the Netherlands is also traced based on how they appear in paintings, etchings and drawings. The many illustrations and interesting text make this book a treat for art and windmill lovers alike. Text in Dutch with English summary.
