Description
Originally published in Amsterdam between 1660 and 1675, Frederick de Wit's Lumen Picturae falls within the tradition of treatises on illustration, an essential element in any artist's education up to the era of the Impressionists. The complete version of the work, presented here in a photographic facsimile edition, is an authentic introduction to the aesthetic thought of 17th-century Holland, the Dutch Golden Age that also produced Rembrandt and Vermeer. The large engraved platesóup to 20 x 14 inchesócatalog facial and figure studies for males, females, and children; allegorical models; saints; and wild and domestic animals.
