JAN DE BEER, GOTHIC RENEWAL IN RENAISSANCE ANTWERP. Dan Ewing. Brepols Publishers, Turnhout, 2015. 300 pp. ISBN 9782503555317 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The Antwerp painter Jan de Beer (c.1475-1527/28) was highly esteemed in his lifetime and still famous forty years after his death, but then fell into oblivion until the early twentieth century. This monograph is the first published, comprehensive study of his art and career. Its biography is the result of a thorough search of the archives and includes a recently discovered teaching contract with Lieven van Male of Ghent. All documents are fully transcribed, including documents for the artist's painter-son, Aert de Beer (c.1508-1538/40). Results from technical studies of the artist's work, including underdrawings and dendrochronological dating, are incorporated throughout the book. The artist's surviving oeuvre consists of forty works, mainly devotional paintings and triptychs but also a dozen drawings and a stained glass window in Antwerp Cathedral after a lost design. De Beer's stylish, elegant art exerted a powerful appeal upon the buying public, churches abroad, and copyists. His lost Adoration of the Magi was the best-selling painting design in Antwerp at the time. De Beer is further important as one of only two Antwerp artists of his generation for whom a signficant body of drawings exist.
