The Religious Paintings of Hendrick Ter Brugghen: Reinventing Christian Painting After the Reformation in Utrecht

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2012 - Art - 179 pages
The first in-depth study of Hendrick ter Brugghen to address questions beyond connoisseurship and attribution, this book illuminates the complex meanings of some of the Dutch master's works. The author explores in particular Caravaggio's influence, his use of archaism, and materiality in Ter Brugghen's paintings. At the same time, she offers insights into the image debates and status of devotional art in Italy and Utrecht in the seventeenth century.
