Description

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes .

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes Vermeer. Ter Borch’s beautiful and evocative paintings were not only varied in subject but also unparalleled among his peers in capturing the elegance and grace of wealthy burghers. In this study, published in conjunction with an exhibit at the National Gallery of Art and Detroit Institute of Art, Wheelock and his contributors manfully tackle the satin issue head-on, while also ingeniously using it as a springboard for exploring the painter’s subtler talents.

This painting records a key moment in European political history: the confirmation of the treaty which granted independence to the Dutch nation. It’s also the first known oil painting to depict such a political event in a ‘factual’ way. Until this painting was made, artists tended to glorify such moments, for.

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch (1617–1681) was a slightly older contemporary of Johannes Vermeer. Ter Borch’s beautiful and evocative paintings were not only varied in subject but also unparalleled among his peers in capturing the elegance and grace of wealthy burghers, the shimmering surface of satin, the undulating rhythms of translucent lace cuffs, and the nuanced psychological interactions between figures in an interior scene. Indeed, ter Borch’s genre scenes clearly influenced works later painted by Vermeer.This lovely book—the first major English-language publication on ter Borch’s paintings—presents a selection of some of the most outstanding works from each area of the artist’s career: the remarkable early pictures of the 1630s, the midcareer genre paintings for which he is best known, and the small portraits that brought him prosperity throughout his life. Essays by noted experts on Dutch art discuss ter Borch’s artistic development, the “modern” aspects of his paintings, and his renowned technique for painting satin.

Great look at his Dutch Golden Age painter.

The colour reproductions included in the book are of good quality. I would have liked to have seen more details though. Not all of the best of ter Borch's works are represented here and when I saw many interesting reproductions of his in small and in black and white it just left me wanting to see more.
