Liber Amicorum for Volker Manuth Published

A liber amicorum was presented on 30 November to Volker Manuth, retiring Professor of early modern art history at Radboud University Nijmegen, on the occasion of his farewell lecture on Rembrandt and Dürer.

Not Always Rembrandt: 37 Studies in Baroque Art was published as volume XXXII in the Nijmegen Art Historical Studies (NKS). It features 37 essays on painting and drawing from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, contributed by specialists in the field. It is a tribute to Volker Manuth’s career spanning 35 years of research, teaching and supervision at, respectively, the Freie Universität Berlin, Queen’s University Kingston and Radboud University. Five sections cover a wide range of topics resonating with Manuth’s areas of interest. The first part focuses on several of Rembrandt’s pupils; the second is devoted to visual analysis and portrait identification. Part three deals with works on paper and copyright issues in the graphic arts. Religious paintings from the Southern Netherlands and Italy are discussed in part four. After effects and key moments of Rembrandt’s art and those of his followers are treated in the fifth part. The sixth part discusses provenances of Dutch art and artistic connections throughout Germany. A bibliography of publications by Volker Manuth completes this richly illustrated Liber Amicorum.
