The only surviving painting by the heterodox and vital Torrentius-Jan Simonz van de Beeck, who became painter to the King of England and died in ignominy, his Still Life with Bridle, gives its name to this illuminating collection of essays and apocrypha that Zbigniew Herbert, one of the greatest European poets of the 20th century, dedicates to Holland or, to be more precise, to the splendour of a region that once concentrated many of the greatest artists in history. This extraordinary book is a celebration of art and of life through the free and enthusiastic gaze of someone who knows how to put the magic, intensity and detail of the pictorial works on offer into poetic transparency, and the curiosity for those who made them possible and their world, in order, in the end, to accompany us through the territories of the deepest human truth.
