How to order?

Antwerp’s Museum Mayer van der Bergh houses a particularly valuable collection of ‘Flemish Primitives’, including paintings of exceptional quality by Juan de Flandes, Vrancke van der Stockt, the Master of the Saint Ursula Legend, works from the environments of Hans Memling, Rogier van der Weyden and the Master of Hoogstraten, as well as an exceptional pre-Eyckian tower retable and two panels from the Antwerp-Baltimore quadriptych. All twenty-one paintings have recently been subjected to scientific examination. The research results are presented in a clear and revised structure of the Corpus series. With its modern layout and over 300 illustrations, the publication offers attractive and exciting reading to every researcher and amateur of 15th-century painting from the Southern Netherlands and the Principality of Liège.

Review

"Insgesamt (aber) ist die hier vorgenommene Umgestaltung sehr zy begrüßen. Sie hat die Benutzbarkeit der Bände und die Überzeugungkraft der Argumentationen eindeutig erhöht." (Kemperdick, Stefan, in : Sehepunkte 04, 2004)
