THE ART OF DEVOTION IN THE LATE MIDDLE AGES IN EUROPE, 1300-1500. Henk van Os et al. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, 1994. Published in association with Merrell Holberton Publishers Ltd, London.

Showcasing an impressive selection of late medieval art works created for use in private devotions, this catalogue provides fine color reproductions of 44 paintings, sculptures, prints and illuminated manuscripts, including depictions of saints and of scenes from the life of Christ by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Master E.S., Andrea Mantegna, Geertgen tot Sint Jans, Hans Memling, Gregor Erhart, Hans Multscher, Dieric Bouts and some 30 other artists. An extensive four-part text investigating the medieval "culture of prayer" and illuminating the function and themes of devotional art through discussions of the featured works is augmented by detailed examinations of two Netherlandish panel paintings and by an analysis of the varied roles of devotional images among the clergy and laity during the Middle Ages.
