2004 · Ostfildern-Ruit
by Giltaij, Jeroen and Peter Hecht
Ostfildern-Ruit: Hatje Cantz, 2004. Softcover. VG- (light bumping to corners). Blue illustrated wraps. 295 pp. with 110 large color and 150 bw plates. This is the English language edition of this phenomenal catalogue, which has the Dutch title "Der Zauber Des Alltaglichen: Hollandische Malerei von Adriaen Brouwer bis Johannes Vermeer" The exhibition was first held in Rotterdam, then traveled to Frankfurt. The texts are comprehensive and thought provoking, as the authors attempt to decipher hidden meanings or symbols in the paintings, or to place them in the context of the time they were created. A true pleasure to peruse with wonderul and numerous illustrations.
