Maarten van Heemskerck and Dutch humanism in the sixteenth century. Translated from the Dutch by Michael Hoyle
Maarssen, Gary Schwartz, 1977
(30.5 cm), 176 pp., 105 text illustrations. Publisher’s cloth, pictorial dust jacket. - A collection of eight essays, concerned primarily with Heemskerck’s prints and their sources, particularly the influence of the Dutch theologian and moral philosopher Dirck Volkertsz Coornhert, who provided Heemskerck with a large number of didactic, moralistic subjects. “Veldman’s book is undoubtedly one of the best studies so far on the connection between humanism and sixteenth-century Netherlandish art… The book is required in the library of anyone studying Northern European culture in the time” (from a review by Jeremy D. Bangs, in Quaerendo, volume 8, 1978, pp.62-65). ¶ Light shelf-wear.
