Jan Lievens A Dutch Master Rediscovered HC
Jan Lievens (1607 - 1674) was among the most fascinating and enigmatic Dutch artist of the 17th century. Daringly innovative as a painter, printmaker and draftsman, he created powerful character studies, formal portraits, religious and allegorical images, and landscapes that were highly esteemed by his contemporaries. Lievens began his careeer as a child prodigy in Leiden in the 1620s. He formed a close symbiotic relationship with his talented compatriot Rembrandt. Lievens moved to London, Antwerp and Amsterdam, each time adapting his style and subject matter to suit patrons that included the Catholic Church as well as private citizens from the highest circles. This beautiful book covers the full range of his career, featuring 50 paintings along with more than 75 prints and drawings.
