5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FLEMISH ART INFO
Unlike just a few years ago, today there are many books about Netherlandish and Flemish art of all periods. "From Rogier van Der Weyden to Gerard David" is a beautiful book filled with excellent color and b/w illustrations of the works being discussed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dry and dull
For the scholar only. Considering the high price of this book, way too many of the prints are in black and white. "From Flanders to Florence" is a much better book, with much better pics.

Unlike just a few years ago, today there are many books about Netherlandish and Flemish art of all periods. "From Rogier van Der Weyden to Gerard David" is a beautiful book filled with excellent color and b/w illustrations of the works being discussed. The authors are experts who give adequate details about the artist and his immediate circle, as well as the wider European influence on him and even the artist's effect upon the art world at that time and afterward. While the style is sedate and professional, it's never stodgy or overly academic, the authors being quite good at balancing the two. There are few gaps or unincluded details or individuals, so I can heartily recommend this for anyone who already loves Flemish art or those who want to learn more and to see clear, sharp reproductions of these incredible artists' work.

This review is from: Early Netherlandish Painting from Rogier van der Weyden to Gerard David (Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History) (Paperback)
