This catalog of 42 remarkable paintings, seen in 60 color plates and 97 duotones, discusses the works at length in light of recent technical and art historical research. Here are Petrus Christus'sGoldsmith in His Shopof 1449, which is justly famous as one of the first northern European paintings to depict everyday life, while in Hans Memling'sPortrait of a Young Man(ca. 1475-80), the sitter is posed before a landscape, a formula that had lasting repercussions in Italian as well as northern European art. Here too are well-known paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder and Younger, Hans Holbein, Rembrandt, Goya, and El Greco. This book is part of a series of beautifully produced and illustrated volumes examining in depth the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
