Hercules Segers (sometimes spelled Seghers) may be art history's greatest unknown artist. Active in early 17th- century Holland just before Rembrandt, he created otherworldly landscapes of astonishing originality, which today are viewed as radical anticipations of modernism. Using innovative techniques that still puzzle scholars, Segers created extraordinarily resonant landscapes characterized by luscious, soft lines that resemble nothing by his contemporaries and little that has followed since.
Accompanying the major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, this two-volume catalogue raisonné features one volume with plates and one with critical texts. It is the most substantial work on the artist ever published, and the first in English since 1978. Beautifully designed by Irma Boom, the revelatory set contains detailed descriptions of all 18 known paintings and all 184 etchings in full color, most of them at actual size.
