Authenticating Paintings by Rembrandt and His Contemporaries
Author: Anna Tummers
Publisher: J Paul Getty Museum Publications
Attributing old master paintings is one of the most difficult tasks of the art historian. While authorship has important implications for the field of art history and for valuation, little has been written on the theory and techniques of the connoisseur's work. This volume analyzes the role of the expert's intuition along with efforts to develop scientific techniques. The author focuses on the challenges of attributing seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art, then turns to investigating connoisseurship, arguing that to evaluate authenticity, it is necessary to understand what it meant when the paintings were created. Further discussions probe the understanding of an “original” versus a “copy” at a time when painters routinely produced multiple versions of a work; the meaning of “by the master's hand” when paintings were often produced with the help of assistants; and the significance of style when artists intentionally varied theirs depending on the subject matter or the audience.
Limericks can brighten the dullest of days. Their aim is to amuse by their subject matter and the ingenuity of their rhymes. In just five lines they tell a complete story with a beginning, middle and end. The best of them are rude, lewd and politically incorrect. For this collection, JEREMY NICHOLAS has road-tested dozens in front of audiences up and down the land and chosen only the funniest from literally thousands. With explanatory footnotes and a useful index, this is a unique selection that will indeed appearl to the true connoisser of the limerick. WARNING: For Grown-Ups Only
