Jørgen Hein is Senior Curator at the Royal Danish Collections at Rosenborg and Amalieneborg.
"[A] magnificent catalogue, the fruit of Jørgen Hein's immense expertise, crowning decades of close study of these works of art from the Danish Royal Collection. . . . Hein's study is thus not only art-historical but historically meticulous: he gives informative, authoritative and at the same time highly entertaining biographies . . . . The detailed catalogue entries are clearly and sensitively written, and to this reviewer's mind the attributions cannot be faulted. There is a full bibliography and helpful indexes of subjects and artists. The production values are exceptionally high, with first-rate illustrations, including more than one view of the more important objects, as well as illustrations of comparative pieces in collections elsewhere. The English translation of Hein's Danish text is fluent, indeed flawless. . . . Jørgen Hein's beautiful and scholarly book crowns what is already an impressive output across Europe."-- "The Art Newspaper"
