Denijs Van Alsloot (Vers 1568? - 1625/26): Peintre Paysagiste Au Service de la Cour Des Archiducs Albert Et Isabelle Volume I (Hardcover)
Denijs van Alsloot (ca 1568 - 1625/26) was without doubt the main landscape Flemish painter at the beginning of the eighteenth century. He rapidly gained favour at Court where he occupied a privileged position. His landscapes are composed of elements taken from the Bruges lace tradition and courtly iconography based on the art of tapestry. His customers appear to have been princes, courtesans and influential state officials. For the first time, this book gives a systematic presentation of the various facets of the works known to have been painted by van Alsloot. The book gives a stylistic and technological analysis of the paintings and sets them against the background of the workshop practices of the time and the artistic patronage of the Hapsburgs.
