Flemish and Dutch Painting: From Van Gogh, Ensor, Magritte, Mondrian to Contemporary Artists
This volume celebrates the connections between Dutch and international modern art. It is based on the exhibition at the famed Palazzo Grassi in Venice, the first in which masterpieces by Belgian and Dutch artists of the last two centuries - Van Gogh, Ensor, Magritte, Mondrian, and many others - are seen together as representative of parallel movements, sharing qualities of elegance, simplicity, and rigor. Flemish and Dutch Painting presents the finest examples of the collections of twenty European museums, as well as of premiere private collections. Following a chronological path, this book is a penetrating survey of how those early developments have influenced and colored the modern age, continuing into Expressionist, Surrealist, and Realist art.
