Brand New Immaculate condition, wrapped in sealed cellophane. paperback.
Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi Uitgevers/Publishers), Netherlands, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Rijksmuseum is celebrating the completed restoration of Rembrandt's magnificent portraits of the exuberantly dressed Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit with a comprehensive publication (and accompanying exhibition) dedicated to life-size portraiture. Over the centuries, powerful monarchs, eccentric aristocrats and rich burghers commissioned portraits of themselves arrayed in all their finery and preferably life-size, from the world's most famous painters. This book presents exceptional life-size portraits by great masters, including Lucas Cranach the Elder, Anthony van Dyck, Frans Hals, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Rembrandt and Velázquez. In an essay, Rijksmuseum curator Jonathan Bikker describes the history, form and function of these portraits and recounts biographical details and lots of juicy gossip about the sitters. Also included are the splendid portraits of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit that were recently acquired by the Rijksmuseum and the Louvre.
