Netherlandish Sculpture 1450-1550

Netherlandish Sculpture 1450-1550

Netherlandish Sculpture 1450-1550

      • Product Description: This is the first book to showcase the extensive collection of Netherlandish late-Medieval sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Netherlandish Late Medieval sculpture has by comparison with contemporary painting remained little known. The V&A's collection contains notable examples from most of the major Netherlandish centres, including Antwerp, Brussels, Malines (Mechelen) and Utrecht. The principle categories of sculptural production are all represented, from the free-standing figure, the altarpiece and the small-scale devotional aid. The subjects range from statues of the Virgin and Child to narrative reliefs. Materials vary from alabaster and stone to woods such as oak, walnut and boxwood. In this lavishly illustrated book, more than 50 pieces have been selected to demonstrate the multitude of uses that sculpture had in the seminal period 1450 to 1550. Introductory essays place the sculptures in their historical, artistic and technical context, and new light is cast on the important collecting activities of the English from the early 19th-century onwards.
