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.
