Publisher's description: Cornelis Engebrechtsz. (ca. 1462-1527) was the first major Leiden painter to whom works can be attributed with certainty... Using as a point of departure the dissertation by Walter Gibson on Engebrechtsz. and his workshop, published in 1977, the present volume also draws upon the subsequent technical investigations of many of the paintings. The spectacular underdrawing of the paintings revealed with infrared reflectography has given better insights in the working methods of the artist and his workshop, and it is now possible to characterize more clearly Engebrechtsz.'s stylistic development, his workshop production, and the different hands involved. The group paintings formerly attributed to Jan de Cock have been more plausibly connected with a Master J. Kock, who was probably trained in landscape painting in Antwerp, and probably moved to Leiden in the 1520's, through it remains difficult to connect him with the Engebrechtsz. workshop. A final chapter of the book is devoted to his works. The book concludes with a catalogue of about 90 paintings, connected with both workshops, summarizing technical material presented in the exhibition-catalogue Lucas van Leyden en de renaissance (spring 2011, Leiden) and updated by the results of the investigations conducted during this exhibition.
