The latest issue of Simiolus appeared. Volume 41 makes a confident start with a double issue containing five papers, including the last one to have been awarded the Bader Prize. For the award-winning contribution Daan van Heesch delved deep into the idiosyncratic response of Paulus de Kempenaer to the art of Hieronymus Bosch at the time of the Dutch Revolt.
The issue also includes a paper by Ilja Veldman in which she publishes an important Van Heemskerck painting that had gone missing almost a century ago, and an intriguing essay that raises the question of the disappearance of the royal tomb in the Age of Absolutism.
