ISBN 90 7028 813 3This is the first monograph devoted to Esaias van de Velde (1587-1630), even though he has long been recognized as one of the pioneers in the development of realism in Dutch landscape art. Esaias van de Velde also made significant contributions to genre and religious painting and even produced a few imaginary likenesses. Supplementing the text is an appendix by J.G.C.A. Briels in which the Flemish origins and genealogy of the Van de Velde family are established.
