This publication offers the papers of the 1995 Herri met de Bles symposium, discussing the problems surrounding the Road to Calvary, the drawings, and the artist?s work in general.


"This volume is likely to become a standard work on Bles and, more generally, sixteenth-century northern landscape painting for years to come, broadening the art historical canon and updating antiquated scholarly narratives." (Achim Timmerman in The HNA Review of Books, vol.17, n°2, November 2000, p.37-38)
