New publication: Los Angeles Museums

The new book in the Corpus-series of our Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives is now available: Los Angeles Museums by Diane Wolfthal and Catherine Metzger. This book represents the first comprehensive study of all the fifteenth-century Flemish paintings in Los Angeles, including those in the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum of Art (Pasadena) and the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery (San Marino). It examines well-known masterpieces by Dirk Bouts, Gerard David, and Hans Memling as well as little-known works, some published here for the first time. Using the latest advances in technical studies, including weave density maps, it reveals new insights. Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated with numerous color illustrations, this volume joins a series of exhaustive studies of early Netherlandish paintings that was begun shortly after the second world war.
