Chapter Summary

The author stresses that the material base for the book does for the most part comprise works from Central, Eastern and Northern Europe, though she had broadened her spectrum to take in works from other regions that illustrate analogous phenomena. In periods when art historians' research focused mainly on issues of style, treating Southern Netherlandish alabaster sculpture as a discrete area of study would probably have met with criticism. The sculptural works that are the subject of the book have more in common than simply material and formal attributes; they also share their provenance. The recent exhibition of Netherlandish alabaster sculpture held in 2011/2012 in the Muzeum Narodowe in Gdansk provided an opportunity to showcase the typological and thematic diversity of these work. Juxtaposition of these exhibits with selected works made in other artistic centres offered the opportunity to reconsider the phenomenon that was Southern Netherlandish alabaster production.

Keywords: Narodowe; Netherlandish alabaster production; sculptural works
