CODART proudly presents its autumn issue of the CODART eZine. The eZine is an interactive digital newsletter on Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide.
The tenth issue includes an article exploring the collection of Netherlandish prints in the Spencer Museum of Art in Kansas and two articles introducing two very different art historical projects. One of these projects identifies the watermarks in Rembrandt’s etchings (the WIRE project), the other aims to initiate fundamental on-the-ground research and documentation of Rubens’s correspondence.
This issue also pays special attention to the ‘hidden gems’ in the collections of five CODART members. These contributions are courtesy of The Low Countries (TLC), the English-language yearbook covering culture and society in Flanders and the Netherlands. This year, TLC published an issue focusing on the Old Masters to mark CODART’s twentieth anniversary (also see our news item).
