THE STYLISH IMAGE: PRINTMAKERS TO THE COURT OF RUDOLF II. R.J.W. Evans et al. National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh, 1991. Organized in association with Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. 66 pp. (2 foldout) with 60 ills. 30 x 21 cm. ISBN 0903598132 In English.
Featuring concise discussions and clear reproductions of 46 engravings by Mannerist artists associated with the Prague court of Rudolf II (1552-1612), a leading cultural center during the late Renaissance, this catalogue surveys portraits, landscapes, and allegorical, mythological and religious images by such engravers as Aegidius Sadeler, Jan Muller and Hendrik Goltzius, many of the prints based on works by Bartolomeus Spranger, Hans von Aachen and Roelant Savery. Two informative essays describe Rudolf's eccentric personality and politically disastrous reign and examine his important role as a patron and collector.
