Item description for Adam Elsheimer by Michael Maek-Gerard...

Elsheimer had an influence to a degree out of all proportion to his brief career and small oeuvre. Born in Frankfurt, he soon migrated to Rome, where the new Baroque style was being forged, both by Caravaggio and other Italians and by visiting northerners. Influenced himself by Atdorfer, Tintoretto, and Bassano, Elsheimer in turn became a revered model for both rubens and Rembrandt, all the French and Flemish painters who visited Rome, and native Italians such as Agostino Tasso and Saraceni. He always worked on a small scale, painting meticulously in oil on a copper ground, but importing into his complex compositons sophisticated devices and effects comparable to the greatest commissions of the time.

Accompanying a major exhibition in Frankfurt, Edinburgh, and London, this book incorporates new research and features superb color plates and details of the artist's paintings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Adam Elsheimer?

A long-awaited resurrection  Apr 8, 2007
This book is a discovery. A catalogue for an exhibit at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, it documents the work of one of the most unjustly unknown masters in art history. Elsheimer influenced most of the big names who came after him in the XVIIth century.

The quality of detail, tone, light and colour is well rendered in these pages. This book is a gem of erudition. Buy it before it gets out of print (books on Elsheimer are as rare as his paintings).And to think that the Louvre does not have a single painting by this artist!
