Stained Glass in The Netherlands before 1795
Part 1 The North, Part 2 The South
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
The Netherlands is rightly famous for the stunning stained glass windows of the Sint Janskerk, an imposing Gothic church in Gouda, but many more examples of this fragile medium have withstood the ravages of time. This is the first book to provide a complete overview of the country’s extensive works of stained glass. In addition to showcasing the mainly post-medieval glass found in situ and dispersed glass, Zsuzsanna van Ruyven-Zeman uses excavated material, designs, and donation documents to evoke windows that are now lost.
