Description

This volume contains a statistical study of 287 Early Netherlandish paintings with domestic settings. The results of the statistical study are compared to information culled from fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century household inventories to suggest that painters and their workshops manipulated depictions of domestic settings and the objects contained within them to signify workshop or civic identity within accepted iconographical frameworks.
