The Sixteenth Century Netherlandish Paintings with French Paintings before 1600

The Sixteenth Century Netherlandish Paintings with French Paintings before 1600


The National Gallery possesses an important collection of paintings by sixteenth-century Netherlandish artists including Joachim Beuckelaer, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Jean Gossart and Quinten Massys. They are grouped here with a small number of French paintings, some by artists who came from the Low Countries (Corneille de Lyon, probably Jean Hey and perhaps the Master of Saint Giles).

Lorne Campbell’s catalogue is a model of scholarship; he has examined all the pictures with Gallery conservators and scientists, carefully described them and rigorously researched their histories, subjects and styles. New discoveries about artists’ techniques and practices have led to many reattributions, and the rescue from anonymity of over twenty paintings. The identities of several patrons are established or suggested, while an introductory essay explains how contemporaries regarded these paintings. Generously illustrated, with many details and technical photographs, and beautifully produced, this comprehensive catalogue will be essential reading for scholars, while also introducing general readers to a vital part of the Gallery’s collection.
