CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

July Issue of The Burlington Magazine on Northern European Art

The latest issue of The Burlington Magazine appeared and it is devoted to art and artists from Northern Europe.

This issue includes research by Gregory Martin and Anna Orlando on Anthony van Dyck’s portrait of the so-called Balbi Children in the National Gallery, London, which shows that the artist’s beguiling subjects are in fact members of another Genoese family.

This month’s articles also include the rediscovery in the Czech Republic of the largest known seventeenth-century reverse-glass painting; it is connected with the Lichtenstein collections and replicates an etching to evoke a lost Rembrandt. The July issue in addition features new technical and art-historical research on the work of the celebrated animal painter Paulus Potter, undertaken as a collaborative project by the Mauritshuis and the National Gallery of Ireland.

Desmond Shawe-Taylor reviews Blaise Ducos’s catalogue of Van Dyck paintings in the Musée du Louvre. Other reviews include: Painting Flanders Abroad: Flemish Art and Artists in Seventeenth-Century Madrid by Peter Cherry, Mark Evans on Jean Bellegambe, and a review of the exhibition Thinking Small: Dutch Art to Scale by Amy Golahny.
