Description

Featuring 20 top pieces from the collection of the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, combined with more than 80 exquisite works from collections around the world, this book sheds new light on the depiction of justice from the 15th to the 17th century. This book provides an historical approach that will appeal to both the expert and the art lover. The inclusion of famous pieces, such as The Judgment of Cambyses by Gerard David and The Last Judgment by Pieter Pourbus and Jan Provoost, make this book an homage to art as well as to the practices of law in society.
