Adam Elsheimer 1578-1610 Exhibition Catalogue

Rüdiger Klessmann, Christian Tico Seifert and Emilie Gordenker

Adam Elsheimer was first recorded in 1600 and by 1610 he was dead. But Elsheimer was influential on the coming century to a degree out of all proportion to his brief career and small output. Above all, he revolutionised the handling of light in landscapes and interiors, introducing novel ways of handling complex narratives as well as inventing new subject matter in painting.

This book offers for the first time a host of lavish colour details from the paintings that demonstrate Elsheimer’s extraordinarily fine touch and feeling. This major study is the first to appear in English for nearly thirty years.
