Rubens & van Dyck
By Görel Cavalli-Björkman (ed.), Ingrid Lindell (ed.)
Meet two of the giants of art history: Peter Paul Rubens and Anthonis van Dyck, a pair of 17th-century Flemish painters whose influence on European art endured for centuries. The book emphasises the magnitude and scope of Flemish painting. The works range from the elegant to the burlesque. Some feature religious or mystical motifs, others are genre paintings. They all have a story to tell. The book will help contemporary onlookers interpret and understand these stories.
Authors: Görel Cavalli-Björkman, Björn Fredlund, Mirjam Neumeister, Karin Sidén and Solfrid Söderlind.
This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition ”Rubens & Van Dyck”, Nationalmuseum 25 February – 23 May 2010.
