Description

The volume comprised of 16 essays by a group of internationally acclaimed authors strives to contribute to a clearer perception of the complex facets of Jacob Jordaens’ oeuvre – and moreover to distinguish it from the works of Rubens, van Dyck, and his contemporaries. The title ‘Genius of Grand Scale’ refers to the spectrum from history to genre as well as to Jordaens’ preference for large formats. Tribute must also be paid to the greatness of the artist Jacob Jordaens, since even the fact that he outlived Rubens for four whole decades did not enable him to escape from under his shadow. By reference to iconographic and iconological studies not only single works are identified and presented in a broad review, but also the long, in many aspects fragmentary reception of his artistic work forms a large part of the interpretations presented here. Furthermore, technical examinations of paintings assist in defining more precisely how the paintings were generated.Der 16 Aufsätze internationaler Autorinnen und Autoren umfassende vorliegende Band leistet einen wertvollen Beitrag dazu, die vielschichtigen Facetten im Œuvre Jacob Jordaens’ klarer zu sehen – auch und gerade in Abgrenzung zu Rubens, van Dyck und seinen Zeitgenossen. Der Titel „Genie großen Formats“ bezieht sich somit zum einen auf Jordaens’ Vorliebe für große Formate, zum anderen soll damit aber auch die intellektuelle Künstlerfigur Jordaens per se gewürdigt werden, denn obwohl er Rubens um ganze vier Jahrzehnte überlebte, steht sein Werk noch immer in dessen Schatten. Der Band fokussiert anhand ikonographischer und ikonologischer Studien einzelne Werke in einem breiten Querschnitt, aber auch die lange, an vielen Stellen bislang rudimentär gebliebene Rezeption des (Kunst-)Schaffens von Jordaens nimmt breiten Raum ein; darüber hinaus beinhaltet er gemäldetechnologische Forschungen, mit deren Hilfe sich die Entstehungsprozesse bedeutender Bildwerke des Flamen präzisieren lassen.
