Table of Contents, vol. 7:2 (2015):
“Jan de Beer’s Lifetime Reputation and Posthumous Fate”
Jan de Beer’s important lifetime reputation is reconstructed by examining archival sources and the artist’s work for the Antwerp guild and church, while partial explanations for his later disappearance from the historical record are provided by analyzing early literary sources.
“Massys and Money: The Tax Collectors Rediscovered”
The late-career original picture by Quinten Massys, much replicated and adapted in later copies, the Tax Collectors (ca. 1525–30; now in the Liechtenstein Collection, Vaduz) has been rediscovered and is analyzed here.
“Peasant and Nestrobber: Bruegel as Witness of His Times”
This study identifies Bruegel’s source for his enigmatic painting, Peasant and Nestrobber as the 36th chapter of Sebastian Brant’s Narrenschiff and relates it to the language being used in the religious struggles that were embroiling the Low Countries.
“The Solomonic Ambitions of Isabel Clara Eugenia in Rubens’s The Triumph of the Eucharist Tapestry Series”
The themes of Solomonism in Peter Paul Rubens’s The Triumph of the Eucharist tapestry series are analyzed through the political context of the cycle’s patron, Isabel Clara Eugenia. The essay provides movies proposing how the series would have been viewed within the church of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid.
