Renowned throughout Renaissance Europe, Pieter Coecke (1502–1550) produced works for the wealthiest and most important patrons of his time, including Emperor Charles V, Francis I, Henry VIII and Cosimo de’ Medici. While he is best known for his magnificent tapestries, which pushed the glamorous, monumental textile format to new heights, he was also a consummate artist in other media, and the output from his workshop ranged from painted altarpieces to designs for stained glass. This lavish publication, the first monograph specifically devoted to Pieter Coecke, introduces him to a contemporary audience and restores his place among the great artists of the sixteenth century. Beautiful reproductions, including fine details, reunite some of the finest surviving drawings and panel paintings with twenty of the splendid Renaissance tapestries made to his designs, while texts by thirty prominent scholars explore Coecke’s art and world.
