Description

By Maryan W. Ainsworth and Joshua P. Waterman

Paintings by Renaissance masters Lucas Cranach the Elder, Albrecht Dürer, and Hans Holbein the Younger are among the works featured in this lavish volume, the first to comprehensively study the largest collection of early German paintings in America. These works, created in the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries in the region that comprises present-day Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, include religious images—such as Virgin and Child with Saint Anne by Dürer and the double- sided altarpiece The Dormition of the Virgin by Hans Schäufelein—as well as remarkable portraits by Holbein and the iconic Judgment of Paris by Cranach. In all, more than 70 works are thoroughly discussed and analyzed, making this volume an incomparable resource for the study of this rich artistic period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb overview. This volume is an excellent overview of the early German paintings in the Met's collection. The most up-to-date scholarship combined with first-class reproductions (all in full color) make this a must-have for any lover of old master paintings. Especially those, like me, who love to keep abreast of the holdings in The Met.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from German Art This book is far larger than it seemed on line. Certainly not complaining about that because the paintings and drawings shown are large enough to see the detailed work. Very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed It was great to find a book that has art works from Germany from the Medieval time period. The German Renaissance was just as exciting as the Italian, but gets far less notice or credit.
