About this product
- DescriptionThe activities of Rogier van der Weyden (1399/1400-1464) were much wider in scope than the well-kwn painted oeuvre that has been the subject of so many publications. This book, with its focus on stone sculpture in Brussels at the time that Rogier was established there, an area of art history that to date has been little explored, offers a fresh and fascinating look at the context in which Brussels's famous city painter operated. Bart Fransen leads you through a network of stoneworkers and craftsmen, from the stone quarry to the sculptor's workshop, to discover a number of remarkable but unkwn or misjudged sculptures w in churches, an abbey, a beguinage, a museum's reserve collection and a castle chapel. With the various case studies in mind he goes on to examine Rogier van der Weyden's direct involvement in sculptural projects, turning to the evidence revealed by archival documents, drawings and sculpture itself. The result is a highly readable and plentifully illustrated book that re-establishes the close relationship between the various art forms that existed in the fifteenth century.
- Author BiographyBart Fransen holds a doctorate in Art History from the Catholic University of Leuven. He is currently head of the Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives, a specialized research unit and part of Belgium's Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels.
