Description: London: Giles, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, illus. Exhibition to be held at the Frick Museum, New York.

Summary: This book celebrates the reunion, for the first time in twenty-four years and only the second time in their history, of two masterpieces of early Netherlandish painting commissioned by the Carthusian monk Jan Vos during his tenure as prior of the Charterhouse of Bruges in the 1440s: the Frick Collection’s Virgin and Child with St. Barbara, St. Elizabeth, and Jan Vos (commissioned from Jan van Eyck and completed by his workshop) and the Gemäldegalerie’s Virgin and Child with St. Barbara and Jan Vos (painted by Petrus Christus). These works are examined with a selection of objects that place them in the rich Carthusian context for which they were created. Drawing on a recent campaign of technical examination and new archival research, this lavishly illustrated, scholarly volume explores the works’ creation, patronage, function, and reception, offering a focused look at devotional and artistic practices in Bruges during the mid-fifteenth century. This is a significant contribution to the body of published knowledge of the role played by images in shaping monastic life and funerary strategies in late medieval Europe.

Contents: Being There - Jan van Eyck and Petrus Christus in Bruges by Till-Holger Borchert ; Collecting Jan van Eyck from Europe to America by Emma Capron ; Paintings, Prayers, and Salvation - The Jan Vos Virgins in Context by Emma Capron ; Attribution Mysteries of the Virgin and Child with Saints Barbara and Elizabeth and Jan Vos by Maryan W.
