Twenty years ago the editor of the Art Bulletin asked Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann, a senior faculty member at the Institute of Fine Arts in New York, to review the state of research in Northern Baroque art. The assignment was part of the journal's survey of the field as a whole, which it was conducting in response to the sometimes seismic battles then being fought, largely along generational lines, between the representatives of the so-called “old art history” and the “new.” The author was impressed with the attention to detail in Harry Berger's lecture, to the specifics of the image itself, in short, his devotion to a kind of unhurried, careful looking that the author found all too rare in their field at the present time.
