"Forty-five of Cuyp's most distinguished paintings and sixty-four drawings are reproduced here in brilliant color, accompanied by more than 100 comparative illustrations. Their appeal lies not only in the subject matter but also in their distinctive style, for Cuyp infused his arcadian subjects and river views with a sensitivity to light and a clarity of form that is firmly grounded in reality." "Published to accompany an international touring exhibition, the book features insightful essays by an international team of curators and scholars that discuss Cuyp's work in the context of his time, personal background, artistic development, patrons, use of costume, and artistic techniques."--Jacket.
