A website dedicated to the work of the Brussels landscape painter Lucas Achtschellink (1629-1699) has been launched. The artist is a follower and presumed pupil of Lodewijk de Vadder (1605-1655), about whom a website by the same author appeared in 2020. Both artists belonged to the so-called School of Painters of the Sonian Forest, which also included Jacques D’Arthois, Ignatius van der Stock and François Coppens, among others.
About 300 works (paintings, drawings and tapestries) are included on lucasachtschellinck.net, along with a biography of the artist, as well as lists of public and private collections, related auctions, art dealers, exhibitions and a bibliography. The site is produced by Emmanuel de Cannart d’Hamale in collaboration with art historian Philippe Dellis and historian Erik Wauters.
