The later Flemish pictures in the collection of Her Majesty The Queen

£80.00

Product description

The Royal Collection contains one of the finest and most varied collections of Old Master paintings in the world. The 147 works catalogued in the present volume are by Flemish artists who were active principally in the seventeenth century; they include a large and outstandingly good group of genre paintings by David Teniers the Younger, and other paintings by such diverse artists as Jan Brueghel, Gonzalez Coques, Frans Francken, Frans Snyders, Karl Philips Spierincks and Jan Wildens. The most important group of works, however, are those by Rubens. The full range of the artists practice is represented in the collection. There are works that are entirely by his hand, and others that were carried out either with known collaborators or with the help of his studio. The introduction to the catalogue gives a fully documented history of the growth of the collection from the early Stuarts to the reign of Queen Victoria. The close relations Charles I enjoyed with Rubens are discussed in detail, and there is a full account of the important acquisitions made by later members of the royal family, notably Frederick, Prince of Wales and George IV.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
