Adriaen Van de Velde: Dutch Master of Landscape
'A quiet revelation' - Telegraph
Accompanying the first ever exhibition devoted to the Dutch painter and draughtsman Adriaen van de Velde (1636–1672), this exhibition catalogue is the first monograph on the artist – one of the finest of the Dutch Golden Age. The Art Newspaper has already billed the exhibition, which is being held at Dulwich Picture Gallery and Rjiksmuseum as one of their top picks of 2016.
A Dutch Italianate, Adriaen van de Velde died at the early age of 35, and yet he produced a great number of masterpieces that earned him tremendous posthumous fame in the 18th and 19th centuries. His meadows, Italianate views, beaches, dunes, forests, winter scenes and portraits in landscape settings are among the very best that the Dutch Golden Age has produced. Moreover, his drawings are widely considered to be a high point in 17th-century Dutch draughtsmanship.
As well as bringing together 60 of his finest works, the publication reunites the paintings with their preparatory studies in seductive red chalk or pen and ink for the first time, making it possible to follow very precisely the various phases in the artist’s creative process.
