Turnhout, Belgium: Harvey Miller, 2000. Hardcover. "Cologne was a major centre of learning, trade and pilgrimage during the later Middle Ages. Its ambitious and sophisticated elector archbishops, patrician merchants, scholars and councillors were powerful patrons of the arts, not least to impress visiting princes and scholars. This substantial volume celebrates the great artistic heritage of Cologne through a discussion of the city's development as an art centre, its workshops and patrons, its masters and styles and the influence of other regions, especially the Netherlands. The study is illustrated throughout with large photographs of altar pieces, panel paintings, stained glass and other works of art followed by a list of locations." Fine / Very Good+. Item #7058
