KIRKUS REVIEW

An unusual book in the field of art, linking the discussions of the Old Flemish masters with the history, institutions and social life of their times. Here is Flanders background, its democracy, prosperity, the towns, trade guilds, emotional life and works of Van yok, Christus, van der Weyden, Bouts, van der Goos, Memling, David, Bosch, Bruegol. There is an intimace of connection in such an approach that defines the popular meaning of those painters of their own period, their importance and significance today, their training and techniques. In its special field and in the larger field of art in general, an important addition.
