Samuel van Hoogstraten was meer dan een succesvol leerling van Rembrandt en een veelzijdig schilder. Door zijn experimenten met optische illusies zocht hij aansluiting bij de natuurwetenschap van zijn tijd. Bovendien schreef hij enkele van de eerste Nederlandse romans en toneelstukken, en een schildertraktaat. Hij reisde naar Rome, Wenen en Londen, en introduceerde de Europese hofcultuur in de Lage Landen. In dit boek onderzoeken verschillende specialisten Van Hoogstratens werk, dat op unieke wijze aantoont hoe in de Nederlandse Gouden Eeuw schilderkunst, literatuur en wetenschap verweven waren. Hierbij gaat bijzondere aandacht uit naar Van Hoogstratens kunsttheorie en zijn literaire teksten, de rol van schilderijen in zijn sociale netwerk, zijn contacten in Italië en Engeland en natuurlijk de kunst van zijn leermeester, Rembrandt. Door nog onbekende werken voor het voetlicht te brengen en nieuwe verbanden te leggen tussen woord en beeld, levert dit boek een belangrijke bijdrage aan ons begrip van Van Hoogstratens `universele kunst in het bredere kader van de vroegmoderne cultuurgeschiedenis.

How did painters and their public speak about art in Rembrandt's age? This book about the writings of the painter-poet Samuel van Hoogstraten, one of Rembrandt's pupils, examines a wide variety of themes from painting practice and theory from the Dutch Golden Age. It addresses the contested issue of 'Dutch realism' and its hidden symbolism, as well as Rembrandt's concern with representing emotions in order to involve the spectator. Diverse aspects of imitation and illusion come to the fore, such as the theory behind sketchy or 'rough' brushwork and the active role played by the viewer's imagination. Taking as its starting point discussions in Rembrandt's studio, this unique study provides an ambitious overview of Dutch artists' ideas on painting.

How are processes of vision, perception, and sensation conceived in the Renaissance? How are those conceptions made manifest in the arts? The essays in this volume address these and similar questions to establish important theoretical and philosophical bases for artistic production in the Renaissance and beyond. The essays also attend to the views of historically significant writers from the ancient classical period to the eighteenth century, including Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, St Augustine, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen), Ibn Sahl, Marsilio Ficino, Nicholas of Cusa, Leon Battista Alberti, Gian Paolo Lomazzo, Gregorio Comanini, John Davies, Rene Descartes, Samuel van Hoogstraten, and George Berkeley. Contributors carefully scrutinize and illustrate the effect of changing and evolving ideas of intellectual and physical vision on artistic practice in Florence, Rome, Venice, England, Austria, and the Netherlands. The artists whose work and practices are discussed include Fra Angelico, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Filippino Lippi, Giovanni Bellini, Raphael, Parmigianino, Titian, Bronzino, Johannes Gumpp and Rembrandt van Rijn. Taken together, the essays provide the reader with a fresh perspective on the intellectual confluence between art, science, philosophy, and literature across Renaissance Europe.

"Seventeenth-century Delft has often been viewed as a quaint town whose artists painted scenes of domestic life. This book revises that image, showing that the small but vibrant Dutch city produced a wide range of artworks, including luxurious tapestries and silver objects, as well as sophisticated paintings for the court at The Hague and for patrician collectors in Delft itself."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
