Paul Holberton publishing, London, 2016 Book. New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 21.6 x 26 cm; 1.267 Kg; 240 pages with 90 colour illustrations; This book celebrates a great champion of our public collections. Peter Hecht is probably best known as an art historian who has specialized in Dutch art of the seventeenth century, with a focus on its iconography and critical fortunes. His interests, however, are wide-ranging and include the history of museums and the development of public collections in the Netherlands. Throughout his career, Hetch has worked to show us why museums matter and how their collections, large or small, national or local, can make a profound difference to the lives of those who use them. As a scholar, he has shared his understanding of how collections are formed; as an expert advisor he has influenced the fate of numerous potential acquisitions; and more recently, as a curator, he has put his knowledge into practice both in a museum setting… Read More

The forty-eight colour plates reproduced here represent the most unusual and dazzling miniatures painted during this period.
