Back cover copy

Snyder's classic survey provides an authoritative and absorbing assessment of Northern achievements, ranging from Bohemian court art under Charles IV in Prague in the 1350s to the open sale of pictures as commodities on Antwerp's art market in the 1560s. In rich detail and with utter clarity, this book tells the stories of the artists and the patrons who created this extraordinary flowering of art. Now sumptuously illustrated in fill color throughout, this new second edition has been carefully revised and updated by Larry Silver, Professor of Art History at University of Pennsylvania and Henry Luttikhuizen, Professor of Art History at Calvin College. Highlights of this second edition include a reorganization of the chapters around centers of production, expanded coverage of the sixteenth century, including the addition of more sculpture and tapestries, and a stronger focus on the careers of major artists. Silver and Luttikhuizen have placed greater emphasis on the reception of Northern Renaissance Art and consequently the new edition features a much stronger consideration of social function arid cultural context. Almost 680 illustrations, more than 250 in full color, are each keyed to the text, providing superb visual documentation. The book also includes notes to the text, maps, a timetable of the major artistic; political, religious, and scientific achievements of the period, a genealogy of the house of Valois, and a freshly updated bibliography.
