Abstract

Warriors are among the most popular pictorial themes in the profane art of the 16th century. They can be found in the work of almost all important artists and in almost all picture media of their time. On the basis of about 4000 systematically evaluated pictorial documents, the author develops a comprehensive cultural-historical depiction of military society and its everyday life in the age of the Lansquenets, which has never been done before in this form: a treasure trove for those interested in the history of mentality, military and art. With 232 partly coloured illustrations.  [Book Jacket]

Translated TitleLansquenets and Reisläufer: Images of the Soldier: A Status in the Art of the 16th Century
