Gerard ter Borch

$ 2.99

A master of the Dutch Golden Age, Gerard ter Borch was a Baroque painter that developed his own distinctive type of genre painting, in which he depicted the elegant atmosphere of seventeenth century middle-class and aristocratic life. His delicate technique was often executed in a small, almost miniature scale. Ter Borch is celebrated for his mastery of rendering diverse surface textures, especially satin and silk, achieving an extraordinary richness of effect. His inimitable genre scenes would go on to inspire De Hooch, Metsu and Vermeer. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Ter Borch’s complete paintings, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
