Infallible Eye Johannes Vermeer, creator of life from oil paint Despite numbering at just 35, his works have prompted a New York Times best seller; a film starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth; record visitor numbers at art institutions from Amsterdam to Washington, DC; and special crowd-control measures at the Mauritshuis, The Hague, where thousands flock to catch a glimpse of the enigmatic and enchanting Girl with a Pearl Earring, also known as the "Dutch Mona Lisa". In his lifetime, however, the fame of Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) barely extended beyond his native Delft and a small circle of patrons. After his death, his name was largely forgotten, except by a few Dutch art collectors and dealers. Outside of Holland, his works were even misattributed to other artists. It was not until the mid-19th century that Vermeer came to the attention of the international art world, which suddenly looked upon his narrative minutiae, meticulous textural detail, and majestic planes of light, spotted a genius, and never looked back. This edition brings our complete catalog of Vermeer's work to the compact Bibliotheca Universalis format, presenting the calm yet compelling scenes so treasured in galleries across Europe and the United States into one monograph of utmost reproduction quality. Crisp details and essays tracing Vermeer's career illuminate his remarkable ability not only to bear witness to the trends and trimmings of the Dutch Golden Age but also to encapsulate an entire story in just one transient gesture, expression, or look.

"Without Caravaggio, Ribera, Vermeer, La Tour and Rembrandt could never have existed ... and the art of Delacroix, Courbet and Manet would have been utterly different." --Roberto Longhi Dramatic shifts from foreboding dark to probing light, with minimal gradation in between; a realism that exposes all the flaws and folds of human flesh, eschewing Michelangelo's idealized bodies; a surgical explication of almost unbearably tense emotion; and the poised depiction of crucial moments at the very lip of their unfolding: these were among the innovations of Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio. Without them, as the great Italian art writer Roberto Longhi once noted, "Ribera, Vermeer, La Tour and Rembrandt could never have existed ... and the art of Delacroix, Courbet and Manet would have been utterly different." It was Longhi who rescued Caravaggio's painting for the 20th century, prior to which it had lain dormant since the painter's mysterious death in 1610. During Caravaggio's lifetime, however, his work was enormously influential and controversial. Each of his innovations in some way upset the prevailing tendencies of the day--not least when his insistence on physical realism led him to paint Saint Matthew as a bald peasant with dirty legs (attended upon by an irreverently intimate boy angel). Nonetheless, Caravaggio was never short of commissions or patrons, and left to posterity around 80 masterpieces. This monograph documents his complete paintings in high-quality reproductions. Authored by renowned scholar Rossella Vodret, it is the must-have monograph on the artist. Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio, was born in 1571 and made his debut in 1600 with two public commissions on the theme of Saint Matthew. He soon became notorious for his temper, and killed a young man in 1606; two further contretemps in Malta and Naples are recorded--the latter, in 1609, involving an attempt on his life--and by 1610 he was dead, after a brief but extraordinary career.

Die schöpferische Auseinandersetzung mit den bedeutenden Werken seiner Vorgänger und Zeitgenossen beschäftige Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) zeitlebens und prägt sein fünfzigjähriges Schaffen. In der Gegenüberstellung seiner Werke mit Skulpturen aus Antike und Renaissance, Gemälden von Tizian, Tintoretto oder Caravaggio sowie Druckgrafiken von Raimondi oder Goltzius öffnet sich ein faszinierender Blick auf Rubens überraschende Motivverwandlungen, seine Neuinszenierung bekannter Bildthemen oder die gekonnte Suche nach dem richtigen Format. Erst so wird das Ausnahmetalent dieses großen Meisters begreifbar, dessen Werke damals wie heute den Betrachter unmittelbar in den Bann ziehen. Peter Paul Rubens ist nicht nur einer der bedeutendsten Maler des Barock, er ist auch ein Virtuose der Verwandlungskunst. Wie kaum ein Zweiter suchte er Inspiration in den Werken anderer Künstler und erfand seine Kunst dabei in radikaler Weise immer wieder neu. Schauen Sie Rubens über die Schulter und tauchen Sie ein in den kreativen Entstehungsprozess seiner Meisterwerke.
