Item description for Van Der Weyden by Lorne Campbell...

Rogier Van der Weyden emerged from scholarly and critical neglect only with the revival of interest in the so-called Flemish Primitives during the second half of the nineteenth century. The immensely forceful, frequently disturbing images which Van der Weyden produced owed as much to his supreme control of paint as they did to his observation of detail, which was never permitted to dominate the general rhythm and pattern of the picture itself. These qualities fused to create a style with a direct impact but one which was the result of only the most subtle and painstaking calculations of color and balance. Dr Campbell explores Van der Weyden s position both as official painter to the city of Brussels and within the international system of princely patronage which was evolving during his lifetime.

Reviews - What do customers think about Van Der Weyden?

mediocre  Oct 6, 2007
This book is a cheap mass-market art book as can be seen in the price, and the production values reflect this. Although the paintings are reproduced in colour, the images are not sharp, and this is immediately obvious. As long as you are aware of this, the book is a reasonable purchase. That said, the paintings are breathtaking, and the choices are commendable. The text is also very readable, and while I am prepared to pay a lot more for a more comprehensive and better produced book on Van Der Weyden, there does not appear to be one on the market, so this was better than nothing. I'm awaiting a catalogue raisonne where everything is full page and in colour!

Art books are expensive. This one is well worth the fifteen dollars. Plenty of informative text, and a good number of color reproductions. As someone wih a large collection of art books i recommend this book, especially for the price. It's fifteen dollars.... Can you find any other cheap books on Van der Weyden?
