Here, for the first time, is a thorough critical appraisal of Hans Memlings forte portraiture that both illuminates and analyses his extraordinary craftsmanship and serene sensibility. Over thirty of Memlings most spectacular portraits form the core of the exhibition and this catalogue. Additional paintings unique to each venue have been chosen to illustrate topics of particular relevance to Memlings work: the exchange of influences with contemporary portraiture from Italy and Germany (Madrid); issues of patronage relating to donor-portraits (Bruges); and the role of the workshop in artistic production (New York).The superb reproductions are introduced by four essays from Till-Holger Borchert, Lorne Campbell, Paula Nuttall and Maryan Ainsworth, and are accompanied by detailed, explanatory entries that throw new light on Memlings techniques and aims.
