Project on the registration of early 17th-century Flemish landscapes (2015)

Almost 800 wood landscapes by Gillis II van Coninxloo, Abraham Govaerts, Jan I Breughel, Adriaen van Stalbemt and many other artists were added to the artwork database RKDimages. The project also included a study of the Antwerp painter Marten Rijckaert.

This project was made possible by a generous donation of funds. It greatly improved the online findability of early 17th-century Flemish landscapes. The eight-month project included preparations for a seminar and a publication in 2016.

Are you also interested in making particular artists or genres better known? 

Support us in setting up traineeships to give young art historians a chance to specialize. In so doing, you will be helping to expand our knowledge of Flemish art for the benefit of researchers, collectors, and the public at large.
