Splendour and Glory

Art of the Russian Orthodox Church

From 19 March to 16 September Splendour and Glory will provide the first overview in the Netherlands of the time-honoured spiritual and artistic traditions of the Russian

Orthodox Church. More than 300 religious artefacts - icons, fresco fragments, robes, paintings, historical books and gold and silver objects associated with Christian

worship - form the tangible evidence of this rich and enduring sacred institution.

Religion has played an essential role in Russian society, from the Church's earliest beginnings in 988, when Grand Prince Vladimir officially adopted Orthodox Christianity

as his state religion, until the present. After this 'baptism', the Orthodox faith spread rapidly throughout the realm, adding an extra dimension to church history and art


The exhibition walls will be richly filled with icons, large and small, centuries old and world famous. Icons are sometimes called windows on eternity, for they are believed to

reveal a piece of heaven. Their beauty is without parallel. Attention will focus on the origins and development of Russian icon painting, with Kiev as its birthplace; examples

from various schools will also be displayed, each with their own stylistic characteristics.

Photos of important churches and monasteries in traditional religious centres such as Novgorod and Pskov reveal the flowering of monastic and ecclesiastical life. In

addition to disseminating the Orthodox faith, monastic institutions played a highly significant role in secular society: monasteries often served political and economic

interests while the nuns in convents assumed a range of social tasks. Many objects bear images of saints, of which there are many in the Russian Orthodox Church. The

most revered of these is the Mother of God, followed by St Nicholas whose name day is celebrated twice in Russia, in the spring (22 May) and in the winter (19 December).

The tremendous artistic riches of the Russian Orthodox Church are emphasised by a wealth of magnificent religious treasures from the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth

centuries, when Moscow was the centre of church and art. The exhibition concludes with church art from St Petersburg, religious heart of Russia from 1703 to 1917 and

controlled by the powerful tsars. The Russian Orthodox Church's great importance to both the tsars and the imperial army is clearly demonstrated by Splendour and Glory.

Text and (moving) images visualise and illustrate major themes such as origins and tradition, medieval Russia and the earliest religious centres, and the spread of

Christianity in Russia. Attention is also paid to the Church's suppression by the Soviet regime and its renaissance in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991.

For six months the Hermitage Amsterdam will be suffused with the spiritual ambiance of ten centuries of exceptional Russian art.


The Making of the MAS

(Eng. ed)

The New Antwerp Museum MAS has chosen four significant themes around

Antwerp's connections to the rest of the world, themes about people, about

their connections to each other and to the rest of the world. They appeal to

everyone and affect every one of us.

Demonstration of power (floor +4) with the collections Prestige and


Metropolis (floor +5) with the collections Here and elsewhere.

International port (floor +6) with the collections Trade and shipping.

Life and death (floors +7 and +8) with the collections Men and gods,

the under- and upperworld.

This book on the Making of the MAS focusses on the building and it's

architecture (Architecten Neutelings), urbanisation, scenography

(B-architecten), and the 4 museums that will be brought together in this new

museum and landmark.

Five Centuries of Images

Masterworks of the MAS

A prestigious exhibition. "Masterworks of the MAS. 5 Centuries of Images"

takes a closer look on the evolution of image culture from the Middle Ages

until now, using masterpieces from the Antwerp collections.

The economical success from the Antwerp harbour generates an important

turning point in 16th and 17th century art. Not only the rich and clerical order

works of art, also the bourgeois class get interested in buying art. A creative

boost is the logic consequence. In the exhibition and catalogue the old

masters such as Jan van Eyck, Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens are

confronted with contemporary artists such as Luc Tuymans, Jan Fabre and

Koen van den Broek.

Magritte - Catalogue Raisonné. Vol. VI:

Oil Paintings, gouaches, drawings. New attributions -

Newly discovered works

Sara Whitfield

Een onmisbaar instrument voor al wie zich wil verdiepen in het oeuvre

van een van de grootste Belgische schilders van de 20ste eeuw.

Een catalogue raisonné is nooit voltooid. Steeds weer worden nieuwe

werken ontdekt, zijn er nieuwe toeschrijvingen, duikt nieuwe informatie op

over reeds gepubliceerde werken of over het leven van de kunstenaar. Eén

jaar na de heruitgave van de toonaangevende monografie van David

Sylvester en 18 jaar na de publicatie van de catalogue raisonné van het

oeuvre van Magritte (1992) onder leiding van diezelfde auteur, vult het

Mercatorfonds de catalogus aan met een zesde volume. Het is

samengesteld door Sarah Whitfield en is de vrucht van vele jaren onderzoek

in de lijn van de eerste vijf delen. Ook hier bevatten de notities een schat

aan aanvullende informatie. Elke notitie wordt geïllustreerd met

kleurenreproducties van het werk in kwestie, aangevuld met vergelijkend


L'outil de travail indispensable à quiconque souhaite approfondir l'oeuvre

d'un des plus grands peintres belges du xxe siècle.

Un catalogue raisonné n'est jamais achevé. De nouvelles oeuvres sont

découvertes, de nouvelles informations sur des oeuvres déjà publiées et sur

la vie de l'artiste font surface. Un an après la réédition de la fameuse

monographie de David Sylvester et 13 ans après la publication du volume 5

du catalogue raisonné de l'oeuvre de Magritte (1997) sous la direction de ce

même auteur, le Fonds Mercator actualise celui-ci en lui ajoutant un sixième

volume. Ici aussi, pour chaque oeuvre, les notices apportent une foule

d'informations complémentaires.

Entre Paradis et Enfer

Mourir au Moyen Âge

L'ouvrage met en lumière 1000 ans de mort, d'inhumation, de deuil et de


Le Moyen Âge, époque violente par excellence dans l'imaginaire populaire,

avait un rapport particulier à la mort. Donnée à facettes multiples et

passionnantes, elle était une composante quotidienne de la vie entre le VIe

et le XVIe siècle. Présente dans toutes les strates de la société de l'époque,

la recherche ne pouvait

être que multidisciplinaire : l'histoire de l'art, l'archéologie, la sociologie, la

théologie et la médecine légale sont donc utilisés dans cet ouvrage. Divisé

en quatre grands chapitres (les causes de la mort, l'accompagnement des

mourants et les rituels funéraires, la topographie de la mort, de la mort à la

résurrection), l'ouvrage dresse le portrait de ce qu'était la mort au Moyen

Âge. Il met en lumière 1 000 ans de mort, d'inhumation, de deuil et de

souvenir avec cette constante : l'aspiration de l'homme à conserver son

statut social et spirituel après la mort. Au travers des pages, on pourra

admirer des peintures, des sculptures, des monuments funéraires, des

reliquaires, des manuscrits, des memento mori, mais aussi des armes, des

instruments de torture, des squelettes, des offrandes funéraires. Tant

d'objets destinés à surmonter la mort qu'à l'infliger.

De tentoonstelling De kracht van zilver toont de collectie

Smith-Hutschenruyter, een bijzondere verzameling van bijna 600 etnische

door gewicht en zilvergehalte, of over geloof in magische spirituele krachten

die de mens kunnen bijstaan in het dagelijks leven. Daarbij roepen de

armbanden, riemen, kettingen, hoofdsieraden en enkelbanden bewondering

op vanwege hun schoonheid en het hoge vakmanschap waarmee ze zijn

Les Peintres du Large de Nieuport par Coxyde à

la Panne


Rik Sauwen

Aan de Westkust - het gebied tussen IJzermonding en Franse grens - is de

ontwikkeling van het toerisme trager op gang gekomen dan elders aan onze

kust en dat was een zegen voor kunstenaars van alle slag. Met de grootste

gedrevenheid hebben zij de onvatbare diversiteit van het zeeklimaat

weergegeven, met empathie het harde bestaan van de vissersbevolking

beschreven, op kleurrijke wijze de vakantiesfeer aan zee bezongen.

Ondanks twee Wereldoorlogen bleven steeds nieuwe kunstenaars het

gebied opzoeken: sommigen als vakantiegangers, anderen op blijvende

wijze. Het waren literatoren zoals Emile Verhaeren, Willem Elsschot of Jean

Cocteau, schilders zoals Louis Artan of Paul Delvaux, beeldhouwers zoals

George Grard of Roel D'Haese, en ook componisten zoals Charles Gounod.

Meer dan honderd jaar artistieke activiteit heeft De Panne, Koksijde,

Sint-Idesbald, Oostduinkerke en Nieuwpoort op de kaart gezet van de

kunstgeschiedenis, op uiteenlopende en verrassende wijze.

eenvoud, intimiteit, spel, mobiliteit, veiligheid, overdracht en samenleven.

Design wordt bekeken vanuit een maatschappijgerichte invalshoek, rekening

houdend met haar impact op de mensheid, in een steeds veranderende

Thalen & Thalen

Jaap Thalen & Rob Thalen

Zilverwerk was door de eeuwen heen een bron van inspiratie voor heel wat

kunstenaars. Religieus zil-verwerk heeft het vak tot ongekende hoogten

ge-bracht, maar in de loop van de 20e eeuw werden de opdrachten

schaarser. Steeds meer ateliers moesten de deuren sluiten en al snel

verdween monumentaal zilverwerk op de achtergrond. Gaandeweg lieten

ook de opleidingen te wensen over.Het is de droom van vader Rob en zoon

Jaap Thalen om opnieuw het allermooiste te maken: objecten,

ge-bruiksvoorwerpen, kunstobjecten in zilver zoals die al heel lang bijna niet

meer te vinden zijn. Monumentale creaties waarvoor zowel het oude

vakmanschap als de meest geavanceerde technieken vereist zijn. Hun

ont-werpen krijgen vorm in het Belgische Francorchamps en worden

wereldwijd naar waarde geschat.

David Ragg


David Ragg & Phil Rowley

David Ragg is a third generation florist, following in the footsteps of his

mother and grandmother. Surrounded by flowers from a very young age, he

understands the simple beauty of one of nature's most wonderful creations,

the flower. His philosophy and view on floral design are uncomplicated.

Working with flowers should be fun, inventive and exciting and the finished

product must stimulate and generate reaction. Contemporary floral design is

not about forcing issues and concepts, but about letting the natural beauty of

flowers speak for themselves and declare their own personality. In 2000

David Ragg became Interflora florist of the year, he was a competitor for the

UK in the Interflora World Cup and in the UK Europa Cup. As a three-times

Gold Medal Winner for Professional Floristry at the Chelsea Flower show,

David's business has been raised to the higher ranks in the floral industry.

He travels the globe teaching and demonstrating his skills. This new

monograph showcases David's range and creative talent.

Moniek Vanden Berghe

Monografie / Monography

Moniek Vanden Berghe

Moniek Vanden Berghe louter als floraal ontwerpster bestempelen zou haar

veelzijdige talent oneer aandoen. Na een opleiding in de schilder- en

beeldhouwkunst, keramiek en grafische vormgeving vond Moniek haar ware

passie in de florale kunst. Haar natuurlijke gevoel voor vorm en kleur,

contrast, textuur en structuur, resulteerde dan ook in een

hoogstpersoonlijke, elegante en eigentijdse schikstijl. Meest bekend voor

haar trendsettende bruidswerk, wat resulteerde in de zeer gesmaakte

Flowers in Love reeks, toont Moniek Vanden Berghe zich in deze eerste

grote monografie van een meer persoonlijke kant. Vezels, twijgen, vruchten,

bladeren en bloemen worden door Monieks vaardige handen tot een

organisch geheel gekneed, wat nu eens resulteert in fijnzinnige

miniatuurtjes, dan weer in grootschaliger extravagante creaties. Schitterend

in beeld gebracht door fotograaf Kurt Dekeyzer wordt deze monografie niet

alleen een inspirerend en authentiek document maar ook een prachtig

kunstboek van een heel persoonlijke signatuur.

Simply being the son or daughter of someone famous doesn't guarantee

success, and in order to step out of the shadow of your well-known dad, you

fathers are so inspirational, they entice their brood to choose very similar

career paths. In His Footsteps sheds light on the most famous father-son

and father-daughter combinations in the world of sports, politics,

entertainment, business, science, art and literature, such as Muhammad and

Laila Ali, John and Julian Lennon, George H.W. and George W. Bush,

Living in great style in Knokke - Zoute

Beautiful homes in Belgium's most exclusive coastal city

Fabienne Vastapane

Knokke, the most exclusive seaside resort in Belgium, is a mere 100

kilometres (65 miles) from the capital of Europe - Brussels. With its broad

and sandy beaches, its eight-kilometre (five-mile) seawall, a beautiful nature

reserve and an enormous variety of options for relaxing, it is a true paradise.

In the exclusive garden districts the architecture and surrounding natural

scenery combine to form a harmonious whole. You will struggle to find as

many brilliant interiors elsewhere as you can find in Knokke-Le Zoute!

Magnificent homes lie secluded on the beautiful seawall, along serene little

pathways and in stately lanes: from grand villas and charming apartments to

cosy farmsteads. Knokke guarantees a wide range of styles - both traditional

and contemporary, intimate and sparse and restrained and exuberant.

Fabienne Vastapane has selected the most extraordinary of these interiors

for this sublime photobook.

La Collection Boch

Le Souffle de Prométhée

Vanessa Bebronne, Ludovic Recchia et Benoît Schoonbroodt

Cet ouvrage présente 50 faïences remarquables fabriquées dans les ateliers

de la manufacture Boch Frères entre 1843 et aujourd'hui. Ces oeuvres sont

présentées dans le cadre d'une exposition annonçant l'ouverture en 2015 du

Centre de la Céramique de la Communauté française baptisé Keramis et

installé à La Louvière sur le site de cette entreprise. Ces oeuvres n'ont

jamais été montrées au public et sont parfois inédites. Parmi celles-ci,

quelques oeuvres remarquables de la période dite de la « Chambre des

peintres » (1870-1900) dont une pièce exceptionnelle de 2,2 mètres de

hauteur témoigneront de la maîtrise des peintres sur faïence à la fin du XIXe

siècle. Parmi les plus connus, des vases du célèbre Charles Catteau ainsi

que plusieurs compositions murales monumentales de style Art Déco créées

par son successeur, Raymond-Henri Chevallier. La sélection mettra aussi

l'accent sur les créations d'après-guerre comme les fantaisies dues à l'esprit

débridé d'Ernest D'Hossche et les expérimentations de l'entreprise en

matière de design industriel.

Verre Art Deco

L'Atelier de Charles Catteau et le Modernisme en Belgique

Christophe Bardin, Isabelle Lecocq, Pierre Loze

Charles Catteau a été l'un des plus grands créateurs de l'Art Déco en

Belgique. Sa réputation dans le domaine de la céramique l'a amené à créer

des décors pour l'industrie verrière. Quelques-uns de ses élèves comptèrent

ainsi parmi les meilleurs créateurs de gobeleteries implantées à Manage

(Scailmont), Familleureux (Gobeleterie nationale) et Houdeng-Goegnies

(Verreries du Centre). Durant les années 1920, ces entreprises ont introduit

des ouvres luxueuses dans leurs catalogues. Les travaux exceptionnels de

ces entreprises sont comparés à d'autres du Val Saint Lambert et des

verreries de Boom (entre Malines et Anvers).

Outre le catalogue de plus de 150 ouvres remarquables produites entre

1925 et 1937, l'ouvrage compte des essais de spécialistes sur l'histoire des

verreries, l'histoire du vitrail, l'enseignement du verre et de la céramique, les

techniques verrières et de la place de l'art verrier belge au sein de l'Europe.

Jean-Dominique Burton. Porto-Novo

Cité rouge, esprit du lagon | Red City, Spirit of the Lagoon

Jean-Dominique Burton

À travers ses photographies de Porto-Novo, capitale historique du Bénin,

Jean-Dominique Burton nous révèle une cité porteuse d'histoire et porteuse

d'avenir : elle est aujourd'hui à la fois apaisée et vibrante, immortelle mais


L'archéologie d'une ville se trouve soit dans les murs, soit dans le souvenir.

Les deux s'entretiennent. Les murs se préservent, se relèvent, se

conservent. Les souvenirs se transmettent par la mémoire des familles, par

les conteurs, les légendes.

Partir à la découverte de Porto-Novo, capitale historique du Bénin, à la suite

de Jean-Dominique Burton, c'est percevoir aussi bien l'urgence de cette

mémoire à conserver, que la modernité de cette vie qui enfle et évolue.

Cette réalité contemporaine c'est celle d'une ville africaine qui se développe

et qui prépare ses lendemains baignée dans une histoire riche de ses

contrastes. Dans cent ans, Porto-Novo sera une ville ultra moderne

uniquement si son histoire et son identité sont préservées. Ce témoignage

en image nous donne à voir toute la vie, la force et la beauté sur laquelle il

lui faudra veiller.

Through his photographs of Porto-Novo, Benin's historic capital,

Jean-Dominique Burton shows us a city steeped in history but also turned

towards the future: it is equally vibrant and at peace, undying but at risk. A

city's foundation lies both in its architecture and its memories. Each must be

cared for. Constructions can be supported, can be rebuilt and preserved.

Memories are kept within families, by story-tellers and through legends.

Art and craftsmanship in fashion design

Annette Duburg, Rixt van der Tol, Karin Schacknat

This book is an orderly manual that opens up an area that functions as an

interesting, supplementary design niche within today's fashion design.

Collected by two Dutch experts in this craftsmanship: Annette Duburg and

Rixt van der Tol.

It includes the historical context of draping, contemporary examples by

fashion designers, a large section on all aspects of draping (of all clothing

components on the most common variations) and the use of draping by

well-known fashion designers from 1900 to the present day.

Draping is a three-dimensional design and production technique that

generates a considerable degree of freedom in terms of design. Freedom in

restraint, as the fabric has to envelop a dress stand and because the design

has to be readable and able to be transferred to a pattern. Draping is a

technique frequently used in couture.

Draping - Art and Craftsmanship in Fashion Design will be presented at the

symposium Beyond Green II, World Fashion Centre Amsterdam on

November 12th 2008.

Hoppé Portraits

Society, Studio and Street

Terence Pepper & Phillip Prodger

Emil Otto Hoppé (1878-1972) was one of the most important and influential

photographers of the first half of the twentieth century. Featuring previously

unpublished work, this richly illustrated book firmly re-establishes Hoppé as

'The Master'recognised by his peers. With a selection of strikingly modernist

portraits as well as early photojournalist studies, this groundbreaking survey

explores Hoppé's rich contribution to the history of portrait photography.

Resident in Britain from 1900, Hoppé began his photographic career in 1907

and soon developed a reputation on both sides of the Atlantic for

photographing eminent figures from the worlds of literature, politics and the

arts. Sitters include Jacob Epstein, Henry James, Vaslav Nijinsky, Karsavina

and Margot Fonteyn, Somerset Maugham, George Bernard Shaw and

members of the British royal family. Less well known are his sensitive

studies of ordinary people - such as cleaners, maids, and street vendors -

that Hoppé made on location as well as in his London studio from the 1920s

onwards. His photo-stories of the early 1930s, including A dog hospital in

Croydon and Inside a taxi-cabmen's shelter, were taken for the new

picture-led reportage magazines such as Weekly Illustrated. These

masterful observations had a significant impact on later photographers and

predate the growth of photojournalism during and after the Second World

War. Following extensive conservation and organisation, the Hoppé

photographic archive has been recently reunited with letters and

biographical documents held by his estate. This impressive survey

showcases 150 of Hoppé's remarkable portraits, as well as discussing new

research into his life and work.

'Miss Kar is one of the most distinguished and gifted photographers in

England.' Bryan Robertson, Whitechapel Gallery, 1959 Ida Kar: Bohemian

Photographer charts Kar's life (1908-74) and career from her first studio in

Cairo in the late 1930s to her move to London in 1945, where she was

introduced to the British art world through the family of Jacob Epstein and

her husband Victor Musgrave. Her first solo exhibition in London, Forty

Artists from London and Paris,at Musgrave's Gallery One in 1954, included

perceptive and sympathetic studies of the artists Stanley Spencer,

Tsugouharu Foujita, Alberto Giacometti, Man Ray and Le Corbusier. Fully

illustrated throughout and featuring previously unseen archive material, this

beautiful book shows Kar's work from the 1950s, which led to her 1960

Whitechapel retrospective. It includes literary subjects such as Iris Murdoch,

Doris Lessing, Colin MacInnes and T.S. Eliot, and portraits of Jean-Paul

Sartre, Andre Breton and Georges Braque taken during visits to Europe. Her

later work includes the photo-essay Le Quartier St Ives (Tatler, 26 July

1961), featuring Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon, Barbara Hepworth and Terry

Frost, and her documentary portraits of Soho bohemia in the 1950s and

early 1960s, including coffee bars, art galleries and protests. Kar's portrait of

Fidel Castro in Cuba of 1964, demonstrates her political interests and her

engagement in promoting her work. Published to accompany a major

exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, 10 March-19 June 2011.

Gabriel Orozco was born in Veracruz in Mexico in 1962. Since the early

innovation. He roams freely and fluently between drawing, photography,

sculpture, installation, and painting, creating a body of work that resists

categorization. Ranging from subtle interventions in the landscape to

meticulously executed sculptures and quick snapshots, art intermingles with

reality and ideas inseparable from experience.

The Vorticists

Manifesto for a Modern World


Rights: BE, NL, G, A, CH

Vorticism was a brief-lived but explosive art movement that emerged in

London on the eve of the First World War. Its adherents were determined to

break decisively with the art of the past and express the dynamism of the

modern world. Vorticism swiftly forged its own identity, helped by Wyndham

Lewis's radical and influential journal Blast. Vorticist painting was

characterised by zig-zagging diagonal forms that were fully abstract yet still

displayed a sense of three-dimensional space.

The journal "G," launched at the suggestion of the founder of the De Stijl

radicalism of the ideas published within "G" were matched by its design and

typography. For the first time the journal is translated and reproduced in full,

Why that Face

Saria Tagliaferri & Alberto Spada

Inspired by Alberto Spada's drawings, inventive author Saria Tagliaferri

made a collection of children's books, dealing with diverse basic aspects of

human life, such as teeth, emotions or professions. Page after page, the

Mockimonsters tell the incredible story of baby dentures, of how our faces

show our feelings, and why we wear different hats. Colorful images, the

apparent simplicity of the unique design in combination with these different

issues make this new collection of board books a must for parents and kids!

Art and Cultures from the African Heartland +special price+

Jan-Lodewijk Grootaers

Ubangi, in central Africa, is a region where roads and influences meet. This

vast country, which extends along the banks of the River Ubangi, is roughly

bounded by Lake Chad in the north, by the Congo river in the south, by the

Cameroonian border in the west and by the Sudanese border in the east.

The sculpture of Ubangi remained for a long time, and quite unjustly,

unrecognized. This work describes and compares the astonishing artistic

lineages which flourish in this region.

Cette collection (du baron Allemand Bernard von Lindenau) doit son

importance au fait que les deux principales écoles du 13e au 15e siècle y

sont représentées: celle de Sienne par des oeuvres de Lippo Memmi, Pietro

Lorenzetti et Sano di Pietro, et celle de Florence, par Fra Angelico, Lorenzo

Monaco, Masaccio et Filippo Lippi e.a. Les oeuvres témoignent de la

richesse et de la diversité de trois siècles de peinture italienne.

Alexis Merle du Bourg

Le musée Jacquemart-André retrace les grandes étapes de la carrière

d'Antoon Van Dyck à travers un genre où il excella : l'art du portrait. En

rassemblant les toiles les plus marquantes des grands musées européens

et américains, cette exposition met à l'honneur un peintre auquel les musées

français n'ont jamais consacré d'exposition à caractère monographique.

Elève de Rubens et inspiré par l'école italienne, il met au point son propre

style à mi-chemin entre l'héritage de son maître et le modèle du Titien.

La Chine sous toit

Anciennes maquettes d'architecture du Musée du Henan +special


Nicole De Bisscop

Le Musée du Henan, en Chine, dispose d'un véritable trésor de maquettes

d'architecture qui ont été découvertes dans les tombes d'éminents Chinois

enterrés entre le iie siècle avant J.-C. et le xviiie siècle. Elles reproduisent

différents types de bâtiments : complexes résidentiels, fermes fortifiées,

tours, entrepôts, théâtres, pagodes et tonnelles, mais aussi demeures

modestes, cuisines, moulins, puits, porcheries et latrines. Les matériaux les

plus couramment utilisés sont la terre cuite et le grès.

Laurent Busine

Des gisants, des transis, des encensoirs, des vies de saints, savamment

organisés selon le tracé de plans de basilique. Et encore, rien de

chronologique dans cette chasse opérée parfois dans des trésors d'église

d'habitude obstinément clos. Pas même de thème fédérateur, sinon

l'émotion de cet humanisme qui éclot, entre le xiie et le xvie siècle, dans la

sensuelle carnation des sculptures d'albâtre de Jacques Du Broucq, dans la

joie intime des miniatures divines de l'orfèvre Hugo d'Oignies.

Saint Augustine

Monk, Bisshop and Doctor of the Church +special price+

Tarsicius J. Van Bavel, Bernard Bruning, L. Van Eeckhoudt

Augustine of Hippo was a multi-facetted character: intellectual and mystic,

scholar and father of the Church, bishop of a prosperous harbour town and

monk, philosopher and biblical thinker. Writings like The City of God and

Confessions have formed part of world literature for centuries. Augustine

was the first to talk extensively about himself, thus placing the human being

at the heart of the story. This iconographic tradition constitutes the guiding

thread in the book.

James Ensor

Collection of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Antwerp


Rights: not NL

Herwig Todts

Few artists of the late nineteenth century produced an oeuvre which is more

bizarre, ironic, profound, and rich in interpretive possibilities than that of the

Belgian painter James Ensor. His unusual motifs, which became

unmistakable symbols of the absurdity of existence, influenced both German

Expressionists and French Surrealists. This volume shows all the works from

the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp.
