Early Netherlandish Painting
John Oliver Hand & Martha Wolff


Masterpieces of early Netherlandish painting such as Jan van Eyck's Annunciation, Rogier van der Weyden's Saint George and the Dragon, and Gerard David's Rest on the Flight into Egypt--among the greatest examples of northern Renaissance panel painting in North America--are included in this volume. The social, economic, and religious contexts of the paintings are explored, and questions of attribution and iconography are addressed.
