Alongside paintings by artists from Jan van Eyck to Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Greenwich royal armour attributed to Hans Holbein, altarpieces, sculptures and engravings, Porras discovers architecture, prints, metalwork, embroidery, tapestry, sculpture and paintings. Each chapter presents works from a roughly 20 year period and focusses on a broad thematic issue such as the flourishing print industry or the mobility of Northern artists and art works. The influence of aristocratic courts as centres of artistic production is traced along with the rise of an urban merchant class leading to the creation of new consumers and new art products. This fascinating story of art covers the years 1400-1750 from the regions north of the Alps ? the Low Countries, France, England and Germany all responding to eras of rapid change and redefining the status of art. 140 images, exceptionally well illus. in colour on quality glossy white paper.
