Description - 17th-18th Century Flemish Painting by Natalya Gritsay

Among the many treasures of The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg is its remarkable collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Flemish paintings-more than five hundred in all-including key works by Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Snyders, and Teniers. Forming the core of the Hermitage's Flemish collection, these works were acquired from all over Europe by the Empress Catherine II, and the collection has continued to develop. This magnificent volume is the first to provide detailed information in English with illustrations for every work. More than 140 artists are represented in the collection and in this complete catalogue, which provides a comprehensive picture of the golden age of Flemish painting. Individual illustrated entries for every work are accompanied by detailed indexes and provenance information that provides a unique view of the history of collecting in Russia.
