Alice I. Davies; JAN VAN KESSEL (1641-1680), catalogue raisonne Davaco, Aetas Aurea, Vol. X, 1993.. Cloth bound with dusjacket, 4to. VIII, 335 pp. text and 411 ills. on 244 plts. (11 in color). JAN VAN KESSEL is a monograph and catalogue raisonne introducing a little-known but talented Amsterdam follower of Jacob van Ruisdael. Many art professionals outside of the speciality of seventeenth- century Dutch landscape do not realize that he existed, with the result that his works sometimes are assigned to the contemporary (but unrelated) Antwerp painter of the same name. The monograph text starts with a critique of the artist's reception to date, both in terms of the public exhibition of his work and the appraisals of him in scholarly literature. Next, his biography is updated using primary and secondary sources, including un-published data from the Amsterdam Municipal Archives. Then, Jan van Kessel's paintings and drawings are given a general introduction, with special attention paid to the development that occurred in the way he signed his name. The main body of the monograph is devoted to his art, presented chronologically from the artist's documented start in 1661 until his early death in 1680. The catalogue raisonne contains fully documented entries with discussions up to a thousand words in lenght. The 290 works catalogued are organized into six sections: Authentic, Problematic, Doubtful Paintings, Authentic Drawings, Problematic Drawings, Doubtful Drawings (26). As new!
