About the Author

Christopher S. Wood is professor in the Department of the History of Art at Yale University.

Reviews

"Christopher Wood's book will immediately be recognized as a landmark in the art history of Northern Renaissance. An astonishing tour de force of scholarship, it is also written with exhilarating verve and great intellectual power. It offers a wholly persuasive historical account of the emergence of a new genre, but does so without ever robbing the paintings of their formal complexity. Wood's reading of Altdorfer's works represents some the most brilliantly sustained accounts of the origins of landscape to have appeared in many years"

--Simon Schama

"The well chosen illustrations are a revelation."

--The Times (UK)

"This is an important book that will have a great and positive influence on the study of Northern art, and on the understanding of landscape painting generally."

--Joseph Leo Koerner

"A study that is bound to become a standard work."

--Independent on Sunday
