LUCAS AND CORNELIS DE WAEL: FLEMISH ARTISTS AND DEALERS IN ANTWERP, GENOA AND ROME IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY. Alison Stoesser. Brepols Publishers, Turnhout, 2016. 350 pp. ISBN 9782503531755 In English.
Publisher's description: In the seventeenth century many young artists from the north and south of the Netherlands gained experience in Rome. However, that Flemish artists in Genoa contributed to lively artistic exchange and trade is less known. In this book the author Alison Johnston Stoesser throws new light on their activities during that day and age, particularly on those of the brothers Lucas and Cornelis de Wael. As artists and dealers, the brothers had connections with many key figures in the Flemish and Genoese art world, including the painter Anthony Van Dyck. For forty years Cornelis, the youngest brother, enjoyed great successes with his painting of everyday scene, fairs and field and naval battles. In addition, the brothers sold the works of other artists as well as many other objects of devotion.
