Summary:
"The impressive series of paintings Jacob and His Twelve Sons by Spanish master Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664) depicts thirteen life-size figures from Chapter 49 of the Book of Genesis, in which Jacob bestows his deathbed blessings to his sons, each of whom go on to found the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Co-edited by Susan Grace Galassi, senior curator of The Frick Collection; Edward Payne, senior curator of Spanish art at the Auckland Castle Trust; and Mark A. Roglán, director of the Meadows Museum; this publication chronicles the scientific analysis of the series Jacob and His Twelve Sons, led by Claire Barry at the Kimball Art Museum's Conservation Department, and provides focused art historical studies on the works. Essay's cover the iconography of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, the history of the canvases, and Zurbarán's artistic practices and visual sources. With this comprehensive and varied approach, the book constitutes the most extensive contribution to the scholarship on one of the most ambitious series by this Golden Age master."-- Provided by publisher.
