The latest issue of Oud Holland concerns the studio of Jacob de Wet (1610-1675), a little master who ran a large, high production workshop.
Through archival documents and painstaking analysis of the use of motifs in a large number of paintings, Angela Jager shows how models were invented in De Wet’s studio. All this in order to realize maximum profit from a minimum outlay of effort.
