Description: Leiden / Boston, Brill, 2015. 25,5 x 17,5 cm. xxii, 452 pp. illustrations mostly in colour, cloth hardcover with dust jacket. ISBN: 9789004283619. Very good copy, small imperfections dust jacket. ∂ How did the classical tradition survive on the North Sea shores? This richly illustrated book explores the interplay between art and erudition in the seventeenth century. It analyses the sources, editions, and reception of Franciscus Juniusís writings to chart how ideas about Northern European painting, from Van Dyck to Rembrandt, developed as a counterweight to the Italian tradition. Thus the language of art in Juniusís The Painting of the Ancients appears to be related to his seminal work in the field of Germanic linguistics and his discovery of the shared pre-Christian civilization of Holland and England. Juniusís innovative pairing of scholarship to the painterís practice illuminates the reception of antiquity and the creation of an Anglo-Dutch artistic Arcadia. b7436. Publishers price Ä 132
