Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

For this compendium of well-summarized biographies of about 300 painters active in the 1600s, Gealt (curator, Indiana Univ. Arts Museum) selected artists based on their "importance,... contributions,... amount of scholarship available... and the inherent quality of their oeuvre." Given these criteria, the selected artists are largely Italian and Dutch/Flemish, with a smattering of other nationalities. Each essay (ranging from one to eight pages) concentrates on biographical facts, training, and discussions of major works and style. Completing each entry are a list of additional works keyed to location (though no clear criteria for inclusion are given) and a bibliography keyed to a master bibliography. A secondary work, but useful at an undergraduate level both for the summary biographies and as an introduction to the mostly English-language literature.

Review

"The first one-volume biographical dictionary in English to provide extensive summaries of the lives of nearly three hundred painters who were active in Europe during the seventeenth century. An extraordinary accomplishment and should be included in all art and humanities, as well as general, collections. It holds particular promise for anyone about to enter upon a pilgrimage to major art collections and museums at home and abroad."-RQ Summer 1994
