From Library Journal
Among the stellar figures of the Dutch Golden Age, Ruisdael is perhaps the preeminent master of the landscape genre. This magisterial catalogue raisonne testifies both to the genius of the artist and to the masterly scholarship of Slive (emeritus, fine arts, Harvard Univ.). In this work, every painting, drawing, and etching attributable to Ruisdael is scrupulously documented and perceptively discussed. The entries are not only well illustrated but are significantly complemented by reproductions of works that suggest both the master's sources and his influence. The paintings are grouped according to topographical or thematic content, with each "subgenre" preceded by a useful introductory essay. Various chronologies, concordances, appendixes, and indexes amplify the volume's contribution to the study of 17th-century...

Book Description
No old master or modern artist begins to match the variety of landscapes Jacob van Ruisdael (1628/9–1682) depicted during the course of his career, nor his grandeur of conception and skill in portraying natural phenomena. His themes span identifiable towns, cities, and castles; rural scenes, both cultivated and wild; seascapes and shore scenes; rivers, bridges, and sluices; rushing torrents and Scandinavian waterfalls.

In this beautifully illustrated book, Seymour Slive demonstrates Ruisdael’s unrivaled range and quality through a vivid evocation of his career not only as a painter, but also as a draftsman and etcher. Slive discusses the artist’s clientele, early collectors and critics, as well as his influence on another preeminent landscapist, John Constable.

Book Description
This beautiful book presents highlights from the collection of Maida and George Abrams, arguably the finest private collection of Dutch seventeenth-century drawings in the world. The works range from studies by renowned masters-including Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Rembrandt van Rijn, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jacques de Gheyn II, Hendrick Goltzius, and Hendrick Avercamp-to drawings by lesser-known draftsmen whose contributions are essential to understanding the art of the period. The book features seven drawings by Rembrandt, a diverse group by his pupils, a comprehensive survey of Dutch landscape drawing, and figure studies and scenes of daily life by genre artists such as Willem Buytewech and Adriaen van Ostade. The works are explicated in William Robinson's detailed catalogue entries and in two essays: George Abrams...
