A significant study of Flemish painting from 1550 to 1650 that focuses in particular on the achievements of artists in Antwerp, this massive catalogue presents reproductions and extensive individual discussions of 160 paintings, some 85 drawings and nearly 130 prints, including works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Rubens, Jordaens, Teniers, Van Dyck and more than 100 other prominent and lesser-known figures. An array of 21 scholarly essays provides a multifaceted examination of Flemish art of the period, discussing such topics as the political and religious context of the Antwerp art world, trends in still life, genre, history, portrait and landscape painting, Jordaens's iconography and principles of composition, Rubens's self-portraits and the operation of his atelier, and the activities of Flemish artists in Spain. A reduced version of this exhibition presented in Antwerp is documented in De Bruegel a Rubens: L'ecole de peinture anversoise, 1550-1650 (Worldwide 23970).
