Review Text

  • By Artsreadings on 17 March 2010

    Recent publications like Susie Nash's Northern Renaissance Art (Oxford History of Art) have favoured a thematic approach to their period, with a clear socio-cultural interest and contextualization of the works. Another reference like Jeffrey Chipps Smith's The Northern Renaissance (Art & Ideas) favours a chronological explanation of the evolution of the visual arts in Northern Europe, but does so in a global way, with selecting significant works to support a line of argument.Snyder's book is still loyal to the old tradition which organises the analysis and knowledge around specific places and artistic foyers of activity, in which in turn individual artists are singled out for their significance.This will prove useful for readers with a limited knowledge of the period and who will discover most artists for the first time - or near that. It will be also be a good refresher for more informed readers, also supported with numerous illustrations.The most important works in the lives of the artists are treated with precise analyses and commentaries.

    Using this text for a first approach to the study of art history, seems to work well but isn't exceptional.
