Craftsman Revealed by Jane Bassett
Book DescriptionDutch sculptor Adriaen de Vries (1556-1626) spent much of his life working for the most discerning royal courts of the age, including that of Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II in Prague.A master of composition and technique, De Vries was relatively unknown until the J. Paul Getty Museum's groundbreaking exhibition in 1999, which firmly established his reputation and afforded a rare opportunity to study in depth a large number of bronzes."The Craftsman Revealed" is a richly illustrated volume that presents the results of the technical study of 25 bronzes from the exhibition. It provides a concise overview of the artist and his technical methods, as well as detailed case studies of individual statues.
