Muscular Bronze

Muscular Bronze: Sculptures by Willem van Tetrode (1525 - 1580)
AMSTERDAM  •  Rijksmuseum  •  Ongoing
About forty, mainly bronze, sculptures by the Dutch sculptor Willem van Tetrode, provide an impressive overview of the development of this 16th-century artist from Delft. The characteristic aspects of his work are the tremendous bundles of male muscles, the athletic poses and the often very three-dimensional compositions. The bronze statues on display in this show of male muscle nudes come from various leading museums and from private collections all over the world.

A catalogue of 160 Pages; 80 illustrations in full colour, 70 in black and white, English edition accompanies this exhibition. Published by Waanders Uitgevers, Zwolle and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. Price € 29.50.
