The Netherlands, Peeters Leuven, 1998. Large, heavy 4to, 317 x 248 x 44mm. 548pp in Dutch, English and French text illustrated with 200 plates mostly in colour. Hardcover in original cloth bindings with dust jacket in as new condition. A detailed and well illustrated volume on the life and work of the Dutch artist Dirk Bouts. Published to accompany and exhibition in 1998. Bouts was among the first northern painters to demonstrate the use of a single vanishing point (as illustrated in his Last Supper). His work has a certain primitive stiffness of drawing, and his figures are often disproportionately long and angular, but his pictures are highly expressive, well designed and rich in colour, with especially good landscape backgrounds. 3.6kg in weight therefore shipping will cost more than ABE default settings.
