This book evokes the art of fifteenth- and sixteenthcentury
Northern Europe in all its richness and splendor.
The works of Van Eyck, Bosch, Bruegel, Dürer, and other
masters are considered within the larger context of a
changing society in which church and state, Protestant
and Catholic, man and woman, artist and patron,
independent mercantile city and noble chivalric court all
played a part.
Craig Harbison considers these and many other facets
of the Renaissance world, drawing them together into
a unifi ed narrative that illuminates the complexity and
brilliance of the art and its times.
Craig Harbison is Professor Emeritus of art history at the University
of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is the author of Jan van Eyck,
The Play of Realism.
