Levensdraden: Een wereldgeschiedenis door het oog van de naald
Lucas Gassel’s paintings invite you to take a good look. Vast landscapes with winding roads and rivers, narrative scenes and meticulous details come to life thanks to Gassel’s painting qualities. With contemporaries such as Joachim Patinir and Henri with de Bles, he co-determined the development of Dutch landscape painting in the sixteenth century – from ‘decor’ for Biblical or apocryphal stories to an independent genre.
This publication appeared with the exhibition of the same name, the first ever dedicated to Gassel. Art-historical and material-technical research into part of his core work yielded a wealth of new insights. For the first time, it brings the oeuvre of this sixteenth-century master into the limelight in a new way. 450 years after his death, it is time for a wide audience to meet Lucas Gassel van Helmond, master of the landscape.
