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.
