The Signature Style of Frans Hals

Painting, Subjectivity, and the Market in Early Modernity

A RT H I S TO RY

Christopher D.M. Atkins

Frans Hals’s extraordinary brushwork has long been celebrated even if its cultural implications have only been partially understood at best. Atkins’s probing study explores the specific ways in which the painter’s brushwork functioned for his contemporaries, and simultaneously, for himself, both as a marker of his skill and of the commercial value of his work. Future studies of Hals, and, indeed, of facture in seventeenthcentury Dutch painting, will have to take into account Atkins’s many findings. wayne franits, professor of art history at Syracuse University

This illuminating work is the fi rst study to consider the manifold functions and meanings of Hals’s distinctive handling of paint. Atkins explores the uniqueness of Hals’s approach to painting and the relationship of his manner to seventeenth-century aesthetics. He investigates the economic motivations and advantages of his methods, the operation of the style as a personal and workshop brand, and the apparent modernity of the artist’s style. The book seeks to understand the multiple levels on which Hals’s consciously cultivated manner of painting operated for himself, his pupils and assistants, his clients, and succeeding generations of viewers. As a result, the book offers a wholly new understanding of one of the leading artists of the Dutch Golden Age, and one of the most

formative painters in the history of art in the Western tradition. It also interrogates the interrelationships of subjectivity, style, authorship, methods of artistic and commercial production, economic consumption, and art theory in early modernity. christopher d.m. atkins is assistant professor of art history at Queens College and The Graduate Center of The City University of New York.

David Rijser

Raphael’s Poetics

Art and Poetry in High Renaissance Rome

A masterful accomplishment. Raphael’s Poetics could not have been written except by someone steeped in the Classics, in the world of Renaissance humanism and of Western aesthetics in general. The book deepened my appreciation of matters with which I was familiar and aroused it when the subject was new. I have nothing but praise. michael c. j. putnam, Brown University Raphael’s Poetics applies strategies of interpretation implicit in antique poetry to the visual art of the Renaissance, concentrating on Raphael’s Roman works and their cultural context. Until recently, scholarly discussion was dominated by the application of Renaissance literary theory to visual arts, obscuring the fact that Renaissance humanists who contributed to literary theory were, in the first instance and almost without exception, poets rather than theorists. By focusing on the interaction between the work of art

and its public, Rijser offers innovative interpretations of canonical works and important insights into the cultural history of the early modern period. Reconstructing a visual grammar and defining the context in which Raphael’s art functioned, this study illuminates contemporary significances that have since been lost. david rijser is assistant professor of Latin at the University of Amsterdam.

Michael C.J. Putnam

The Humanness of Heroes The author, a distinguished classical scholar, sheds new light on the controversial ending of one of the most acclaimed epic poems in the Western tradition, Virgil’s Aeneid. Examining the savage rampage upon which Aeneas embarks in the tenth book of the poem, Putnam traces the sources and manifestations of the hero’s emotions, and concludes with a detailed reading of the poem’s closing lines. An epilogue surveys the relationship between Virgil’s denouement and aspects of Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Twain’s Huckleberry Finn.

Studies in the Conclusion of Virgil’s Aeneid

Through an examination of human values as they are shaped and delineated by a great imagination, the book aims to further the position of Virgil as one of the most original of poets in our humanist canon, himself emulating Homer but deeply influential in the literature of our world, from Dante to Derek Walcott and Seamus Heaney. michael c.j. putnam is MacMillan Professor of Classics and Professor Comparative Literature emeritus at Brown University.

Inside Out Victory Boogie Woogie

A Material History of Mondrian’s Masterpiece

This important volume explores Mondrian’s masterpiece from every angle, tracing its critical and material history while reporting on new technical studies -- a heterogeneous approach befitting a painting whose singular achievement was (in the words of its curator) to have ‘no dominant components’. harry cooper, Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington Victory Boogie Woogie, Piet Mondrian’s unfinished masterpiece created in 1942-44, has come to be regarded as not merely the high point of his oeuvre, but also as a dazzling icon of non-figurative art in the twentieth century. Despite its landmark status in art history, Victory Boogie Woogie has never been studied in detail. This pioneering survey tracks the minute detail of the creation and physical appearance of the painting, delving into historical sources, conservation history and

microscopic analysis of the paint surface and below.

Imagining Global Amsterdam Imagining Global Amsterdam brings together a range of essays on the image of Amsterdam as articulated in fi lm, literature, art and urban discourse, considered specifically in the context of globalisation. Subjects include: Amsterdam as a lieu de mémoire of early-modern commerce and expansionist capitalism, and the ways in which this memory resonates with the present global order; (inter)national articulations of Amsterdam as a multicultural and highly permissive ‘global village’, and the role of literature and visual culture in both maintaining and

History, Culture, and Geography in a World City questioning this image over time; and globalisation’s impact on Amsterdam ‘on the ground’, through city branding, the cultural heritage industry, and other forms of cultural production. Written by an expert team of scholars, and united by a broad humanities approach, this collection forms an unprecedented inquiry into the relationship between Amsterdam, globalisation and the urban imaginary. marco de waard is lecturer in English and comparative literature at Amsterdam University College.

WATCH AND LEARN Rhetorical Devices in Classroom Films after 1940

FRAMING

FILM A M S T E R DA M U N I V E R S I T Y P R E S S NEDERLANDS FILMMUSEUM

Since the late 1990s, there has been a marked increase in academic interest in what are sometimes called ‘utility films’, intended for purposes of information, training, teaching or advertising. Although such research was long overdue, the current academic output tends to be restricted in scope, paying little attention to the films’ textual features: the means they deploy in defending their informational, educational or commercial arguments. In the absence of such studies, the image survives of very ‘formulaic’ genres. Masson’s book seeks to modify this picture, and suggests a

Rhetorical Devices in Classroom Films after 1940 methodology that helps to foreground the films’ rhetorical diversity. Taking her departure from a historic collection of Dutch classroom films, Masson proposes an approach that considers an audio-visual text as part of a so-called dispositif: the set-up of technology, text and viewing situation that is relevant to the specific corpus under scrutiny. eef masson is assistant professor of film and visual culture at the University of Amsterdam.

Mobile Screens

The Visual Regime of Navigation

In the process of exploring these new screen practices, Verhoeff offers fresh perspectives on many of the key questions in media and new media studies as well as a number of new original theoretical concepts. As the first theoretical manual for the society of mobile screens, this book will become an essential reference for all future investigations of our mobile screen condition. lev manovich, professor in visual arts department, University of California As far as interaction with screens is concerned, the given technology of particular interactive devices entails an ambiguous status of screens: what is shown on the screen has to do with how one interacts with it, that is, we can almost literally see what we are doing. Reflecting on the ubiquity of screens of all sizes in our daily lives and the myriad ways in which we interact with them, Verhoeff explores the intersections between mobility and visuality, and the varieties of screen-based access to such experiences.

In five case-study based chapters, the author analyses a variety of contemporary screen technologies and the cultural practices involving these screen-based configurations – the ways in which we engage with screens as interfaces with spatial, temporal and haptic experiences. nanna verhoeff is associate professor of comparative media studies at Utrecht University.

A number of recent studies of mobile wireless communication devices focus on use values, social implications, changing norms and ethics, conversation strategies and culture-dependent domestication. De Vries proposes to venture into a more historical and comparative direction to shed light on our preoccupation with them in the first place. He constructs an expanded archaeological view of the development, marketing, and reception of communication technologies over the past 200 years, providing a comprehensive account of how persistent paradoxical

An Archaeology of Communication Desires in Discourses of Mobile Wireless Media desires for sublime communication have come to give mobile wireless media such a prominent position. Our expectations and uses of them are surprisingly similar to those of older media: consequently, they reconfirm the idea that actually living in an ‘anyone, anything, anytime, anywhere’ world is both a blessing and a curse, and that the desire for sublime communication is a tragic yet highly powerful regulative principle in our media evolution. imar de vries is assistant professor of new media and digital culture at Utrecht University.

Sixty-five Years of Forgetting, Commemorating, Silencing

This engaging, timely study draws upon Oostindie’s decades of intensive research and writing on slavery, colonialism, and their legacy for the Netherlands. He treats unavoidably provocative cultural issues with admirable sensitivity and balance, renders complex identity issues highly accessible, and tests his findings through comparison with selected other European societies. allison blakely, professor of history, Boston University The Netherlands is home to one million citizens with roots in the former colonies Indonesia, Suriname and the Antilles. Entitlement to Dutch citizenship, premigration acculturation in the Dutch language and culture as well as a strong rhetorical argument (“We are here because you were there!”) were important assets of the first generation, facilitating its integration into the Dutch society. The current Dutch population counts two million non-Western migrants, and the past decade witnessed heated debates

Mission Uruzgan Collaborating in Multiple Coalitions for Afghanistan Edited by Robert Beeres, Jan van der Meulen, Joseph Soeters & Ad Vogelaar

From autumn 2001 onwards, Dutch armed forces have been involved in military operations in Afghanistan. These deployments found their culmination in a four-year period (2006 – 2010) when the Netherlands acted as lead nation in the province of Uruzgan. This important study provides a wealth of insights into the many problems the military organisation had to cope with, as well as into the solutions achieved by the Dutch soldiers, collaborating with partners in multiple coalitions. Focusing on the collaborative aspect, the authors trace the principles and practice of working together with partners in multiple military coalitions, involving the local population and its variety of power brokers, allies in and beyond NATO, and civil and military entrepreneurs.

Robert Joost Willink

This compelling, richly illustrated work recounts the African journeys of the intrepid Dutch traveller Alexine Tinne (1835-1869). Heiress to a huge fortune – she was at the time the richest woman in the country – and bored with the royal court intrigues in The Hague, Tinne left for Egypt and Sudan accompanied by her mother Henriette Tinne-Van Capellen, ultimately settling in Khartoum. On her expedition in 1863-64, Tinne was joined by the German zoologist Theodor von Heuglin: the whole party set out for the as yet uncharted Bahr-el-Ghazal, hoping to explore that region and ascertain how far westward the Nile basin extended. After four years of research in the Tinne archives, including hitherto unknown correspondence, photos and other documents, Willink presents a dramatic account of Tinne’s eventful expedition, casting new light on the events which

some years later, in 1869, ended with Tinne’s murder, most likely by the tribesmen who believed there was gold hidden in her water tanks. In this important work, Willink casts a new light on the excitement and the dangers of travel in colonial Africa’s uncharted territories before and after Tinne’s enterprise, revealing to what extent her gruesome death had been foreshadowed in the earlier years and how it would reverberate in the years to come. An accomplished photographer and collector of artefacts, Tinne left a wealth of material from her travels, and many items are reproduced here in colour, bearing testimony to her fascination with Africa. robert joost willink is an independent historian and associate fellow researcher at the African Studies Centre at Leiden University.

This is the first attempt by a major European scholar to include rich Chinese materials in a remarkably innovative study of utopia as a literary genre. zhang longxi, Chair of Comparative Literature and Translation, City University of Hong Kong ... a scholarly tour de force, splendidly accomplished by one of the great comparatists of our time. With his customary clarity, deploying his profound expertise in both European and Chinese writing, Douwe Fokkema champions the significance of utopian fiction as a major genre of world literature. michel hockx, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London Perfect Worlds offers an extensive historical analysis of utopian narratives in the Chinese and Euro-American traditions. This fine comparative study discusses also the rise of dystopian writing – a negative expression of the utopian impulse – in Europe and America (including the classic works by Zamyatin, Huxley, Orwell, Bradbury, Atwood) as well as in China (Lao She, Wang Shuo and others). The author observes that the utopian imagination thrives in a context of secularisation. It appears that in the

twentieth century the distinction between utopia and dystopia became blurred as a result of the increasing autonomy of the reader. Fokkema argues that in modern times utopianism in China and in the West developed in opposite directions, each appropriating attitudes originally considered alien from the other culture. douwe fokkema was professor emeritus of comparative literature at Utrecht University.

Sharing starts from a radically different viewpoint that the non-market sharing of digital works is both legitimate and useful. It supports this premise with empirical research based on publicly available data, demonstrating that non-market sharing leads to more diversity in the attention given to various works. It engages in an in-depth exploration of how various media

are transformed in our digital world. Taking stock of what we have learnt about the cultural economy in recent years, Sharing sets out the conditions necessary for valuable cultural functions to remain sustainable in this context. philippe aigran is the CEO of Sopinspace, Society for Public Information Spaces and one of the founders of La Quadrature.

This important volume presents seven case studies of global value chains alongside two theoretical chapters concerning these chains. The contributors explore a wide range of issues relevant to value chains: the impact of global value chains on local upgrading strategies, the role of governance structures shaping global value chains, the role of buyers in creating, monitoring and enforcing commodity speciďŹ cations and of international standards in shaping the patterns of chain governance. They also consider the role of donors, governmental organisations, and civil society in inuencing value chains and the importance of partnerships as mechanisms for value chain upgrading.

Responsibility to Protect The tragic events in the 1990s in Rwanda, Srebrenica and Kosovo, and the crisis in Libya in 2011 have triggered a fundamental rethinking of the role and responsibility of the international community. It is now accepted that while individual states continue to bear the primary responsibility to protect their populations against genocide, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and war crimes within their boundaries, the international community should step in when the state is unable or unwilling to provide such protection. The principle of the Responsibility to Protect, or RtoP, reects this recognition, and provides the normative basis for

From Principle to Practice

involvement of the international community in cases of mass atrocities. This thoughtful work is a major contribution towards clarifying what RtoP can offer, moving from principle to practice, and spanning the disciplines of international law, international relations, and moral philosophy. julia hoffmann is assistant professor of media, conict and peace at the University for Peace in Costa Rica. andrÊ nollkaemper is professor of public international law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam.

Historical demographers since Thomas Malthus have characterised the WestEuropean and Chinese demographic regimes as systems under low and high pressure, respectively. This volume examines the operation of the positive check at the two ends of the Eurasian continent by taking the Netherlands and Taiwan as representatives of the West-European and Chinese mortality regimes. The volume opens with a cluster of chapters dealing with long term trends in mortality and the accompanying changes in causes of death. The book also analyses factors affecting

AIDS, Intimacy and Care in Rural KwaZulu-Natal A Kinship of Bones

ABHI:G96BUC>K:GH>INPG:HH

In 2003-2006, Patricia Henderson lived in the South African province of KwaZuluNatal where she recorded the experiences of people living with HIV/AIDS. In this illuminating study, she recounts the concerns of rural people and explores local repertoires through which illness was folded into everyday life. The book spans a period when antiretroviral medication was not available, and moves on to a time when the treatment became accessible. Hope gradually became manifest in the recovery of a number of people through

antiretroviral therapies and ‘the return’ of bodies they could recognise as their own. This research implies that protracted interaction with people over time, offers insights into the unfolding textures of everyday life, in particular in its focus on suffering, social and structural inequality, illness, violence, mourning, sensibility, care and intimacy. patricia c. henderson is lecturer in the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Cape Town.

P r e s s

Why do governments still negotiate with trade unions and employers in the design of labour market and welfare reforms despite the steady decline of trade union membership almost everywhere in Europe? Social Concertation in Times of Austerity investigates the political underpinnings of social concertation in this new context with a focus on the regulation of labour mobility and unemployment protection in Austria and Switzerland. It shows that the involvement

of organised interests in policymaking is a strategy of compromise-building used by governments when they are faced with party-political divisions, or when unpopular reforms are likely to have risky electoral consequences. alexandre afonso is a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, Germany.

The Transformation of Solidarity This study investigates the consequences of processes of social individualisation and economic globalisation for welfare state solidarity. Solidarity is defined as the willingness to share risks. The institutions of the welfare state, such as social security or health care insurance, are founded on the willingness of citizens to share risks and organize solidarity between the young and the old, between the healthy and the sick, between the working and the unemployed. Processes of individualisation and globalisation affect these risks and in this study the authors investigate how and to what extent these changes influence the

Changing Risks and the Future of the Welfare State

way risks are perceived by the public, what this means for the willingness to share risks and how this is translated in risk management strategies in firms, unions and adminstrative agencies. romke van der veen is professor of sociology at the Erasmus University Rotterdam; mara yerkes is research fellow at the Erasmus University Rotterdam; peter achterberg is assistant professor, all at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
