Cloth bound, 2 vols. in 4to., 504 pp. text, 32 color plates and 340 illustrations on 272 plates in black/white. In the summer of 1535, the Emperor Charles V led an international crusade to Tunis, he took with him historians and poets as well as a war-artist, Jan Cornelisz Vermeyen (1500-1559). A decade after the Tunis expedition, Vermeyen began his preliminary drawings for a huge tapestry series. The Conquest of Tunis, though little known, is the most important and best documented commission of Charles V as well as the entire Habsburg dynasty. Vermeyen was one of the leading imperial portraitists of his time, as well as an important painter of religious subjects and a veritable etcher of genius. A monograph on the artist was badly overdue, and the present study seeks in part to fill this need. The text is divided into four parts, each made up of several chapters. Part I, the longest, is the first book-length study of Vermeyen as painter, draftsman, and etcher. Part II examines the history Conquest of Tunis series. Part III studies how the Conquest of Tunis series depicts the crusade. Finally, Part IV places the Conquest of Tunis series in the tradition. As new. EUR 189.00 Verder winkelen In winkelwagen
