Lowenthal, Anne W.; JOACHIM WTEWAEL AND DUTCH MANNERISM catalogue raisonne. Davaco, Aetas Aurea, Vol. VI, 1989.. Cloth bound, 4to., 280 pp. text containing a full catalogue raisonne, 319 plates and ills. from which 28 color plates. This book explores Wtewael's position at a transitional moment in Dutch art. It is a study of the last efflorescence of mannerism and an assessment of that tradition's importance for the seventeenth century. Emphasis is on Wtewael as a painter, with his related drawings also considered. Most often choosing his themes from classical mythology and the Bible, he was a history painter, when that calling was considered the highest level of art. He also, however, painted portraits and genre scenes. The variety of his subjects is matched by protean shifts in format, from brilliant little pictures on copper to panel paintings and canvases on a grand scale. The text begins with an overview of Dutch mannerism - its definition, history, and relationship to other European manifestations of the style. Subsequent chapters provide a biography of Wtewael, trace the stylistic development of his paintings, and discuss his choice and treatment of subjects. A review of his and his colleagues' reputations with artists, critics, and collectors presents the vicissitudes of Dutch mannerism since the seventeenth century. And, finally, a chapter of connoisseurhip devotes particular attention to the multiple versions of Wtewael's paintings and the separate artistic identity of his son Peter.
