The Art of Law: Three Centuries of Justice Depicted

Introduction by Georges Martyn

Tielt: Lannoo, 2016, 205 pp.

ISBN: 9789401440417

Featuring 20 top pieces from the collection of the
Groeninge Museum in Bruges, combined with more than 80 exquisite works from
collections around the world, this book sheds new light on the depiction of
justice from the 15th to the 17th century. This book provides an historical
approach that will appeal to both the expert and the art lover. The inclusion
of famous pieces, such as The Judgment of Cambyses by Gerard David and The Last
Judgment
by Pieter Pourbus and Jan Provoost, make this book an homage to art as
well as to the practices of law in society.

The Art of Lawwas curated and coordinated by art historian Vanessa Paumen,
coordinator of the Flemish Research Centre for the Arts of the Burgundian
Netherlands at the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, along with fellow art historian Tine
Van Poucke
, the museum’s education and outreach officer. The curators were
advised by art historian Stefan Huygebaert, who is currently completing
a PhD in legal iconography at Ghent University, and by Georges Martyn,
Professor of Legal History at Ghent University and honorary barrister of the
Ghent bar and substitute magistrate (justice of the peace).
