Tulip Fever (Thorndike Press Large Print Buckinghams) - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 0786223006

[SR: 6771994], Paperback, [EAN: 9780786223008], Thorndike Pr, Thorndike Pr, Book, [PU: Thorndike Pr], 2000-03-01, Thorndike Pr, The Amsterdam of the early 17th century has been forever immortalised by the serene, precise domestic realism of the canvases of Vermeer and Rembrandt, and has been studied with meticulous care by Simon Schama in his marvellous book The Embarrassment of Riches. What Schama identified at the heart of the opulent display of conspicuous consumption in Dutch still-life painting was an anxiety about wealth and owning commodities. This ran throughout 17th-century life in the Low Countries, an argument beautifully complemented by Ann Pavord's marvellous book on The Tulip. Deborah Moggach's novel Tulip Fever gives both Schama and Pavord's studies a compelling fictional twist. Set in 1630s Amsterdam, it begins with a typical Renaissance love triangle: a wealthy, elderly merchant Cornelis Sandvoort, his beautiful but frustrated young wife Sophia and the painter who enters their life, Jan van Loos. Commissioned to paint the happy couple's portrait, Jan becomes embroiled in a series of emotional and financial speculations which are to change the character's lives forever. Tulip Fever is a delightfully conceived story which offers a new dimension to what really goes on within the apparently placid domestic interiors of such canvases. --Jerry Brotton (Running time approx 2 hours 20 minutes), 62, Fiction, 275035, Adventure Stories & Action, 275116, Anthologies, 426316031, Biographical Fiction, 590912, Classics, 590756, Contemporary Fiction, 72, Crime, Thrillers & Mystery, 275040, Erotica, 275050, Family Sagas, 279254, Fantasy, 598310, Film & Television Tie-In, 590800, Gay & Lesbian, 10790401, Historical, 63, Horror, 426359031, Humour, 590930, Lad Lit, 590934, Literary Fiction, 426309031, Medical, 590794, Metaphysical & Visionary, 275053, Myths & Fairy Tales, 426362031, Poetry & Drama, 590796, Political, 426310031, Psychological, 275054, Religious & Inspirational, 88, Romance, 279292, Science Fiction, 275380, Short Stories, 590792, Sport, 275060, War, 275065, Westerns, 590760, Women Writers & Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
