The latest issue of Oud Holland – Journal for Art of the Low Countries covers a wide range of articles from a rediscovered panel by Mandijn from 1552, and the seized art collection of a lady-in-waiting, to a painted portrait identified as a Dutch scientist, and a famous photo from 1873 – formerly believed as the likeness of Vincent van Gogh.
