"The Flemish tapestries collected by the Habsburg rulers of the Low Countries are among the most beautiful art works of the Renaissance period. This book places these important tapestries in their historical and cultural context."--Publisher's description.
Frances Hodgkins was recognized by her contemporaries in the 1930s and 1940s as a leading member of the British avant-garde, exhibiting often with such artists as John Piper and Graham Sutherland. This book focuses on the paintings and drawings of this artist. Three extensive essays explore in depth the development of Hodgkins's artistic practice. She is seen experimenting in a variety of mediums and styles, and an artist working towards her late phase, at its most apparent in her landscapes. Forty full-page colour reproductions each with a detailed description, display Hodgkins's art, her use of colour and handling of subject matter. The book concludes with a chronology and a list of exhibitions. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Renowned throughout Renaissance Europe, Pieter Coecke van Aelst (1502-1550) produced works for the wealthiest and most important patrons of the time, including Emperor Charles V, Francis I of France, Henry VIII of England, the Habsburgs, and Cosimo de Medici. While he is best known for his magnificent tapestries, he was also a consummate artist in other media, and the output from his workshop included painted altarpieces, as well as designs and cartoons for stained glass. This lavish publication, the first comprehensive volume devoted to this Renaissance master since 1966, introduces Pieter Coecke van Aelst to a contemporary audience and places him among the great artists of the 16th century. New photographs, including fine details, reunite twenty of the splendid Renaissance tapestries made to his designs with some of his finest surviving drawings and panel paintings, while texts by thirteen prominent scholars explore Coecke's art and world. Both a feast for the eyes and an important reappraisal of a great Renaissance master, this important study will stand as the comprehensive volume on a major artist of the Northern Renaissance.
