The Age of Van Eyck focuses on the complex artistic and cultural relationships between Flanders and mediterranean Europe during the period 1430-1530, one of the most fruitful and evocative periods in European cultural history. Published to accompany the exhibition at the Groeningemuseum in Bruges in March 2002, this sumptuous volume combines the latest scholarship with an array of glorious colour reproductions of some of the most important art of the period, such as Van Eyck's altarpiece Madonna with Canon Van der Paele, among other works by Memling, Christus, da Messina, Bellini and Berruguete. An array of internationally renowned scholars have contributed fifteen essays which explore the artistic presence, influence and activities of early Netherlandish painters in foreign countries, thus securing the lasting academic impact of the project.

Till Holger Bochert is exhibition curator at the Groeningemuseum, Bruges, and co-organizer of the cultural festival Brugge 2002.From Library Journal:
This luscious book is true eye candy, but it's not just another pretty picture book. The text, compiled by the exhibition curator at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, Belgium, is revealing as well as refreshingly stirring. Written for the general reader, this volume accompanies the large-scale exhibition Jan Van Eyck, 1430-1530 held at the Groeninge Museum last spring. Intended to illustrate the revolution in oil-painting sparked by the work of van Eyck and to present the interaction between the north and south of Europe during this pivotal period, this book invites readers to look, reflect, and draw conclusions on their own. Sixteen signed chapters, such as "Art Markets," "Princes, Patrons and Eclecticism: Naples and the North," and "A New Look on the World: The Invention of Landscape," set a big-picture stage. The catalog section, which follows, is divided into geographical sections (Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal) and is concise and just as well written. Roughly 130 paintings from the 15th century (almost all on panel) generously fill the pages; some are reproduced here for the first time in color. No book has so thoroughly covered this subject in at least 20 years, and the quality of the images makes this more than worth the price. Highly recommended.
