Gerson Digital : Germany II


Dispersal and After-Effect of Dutch Painting of the 17th Century: Germany, Austria and Bohemia - The 18th and 19th Centuries

A Translated, Illustrated and Annotated Chapter from Horst Gerson’s Ausbreitung und Nachwirkung der holländischen Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts (1942/1983)1


Annotated by Rieke van Leeuwen

Gerson Digital : Germany II , the 4th volume of the renewed, illustrated and annotated English edition of Horst Gerson’s Ausbreitung und Nachwirkung der holländischen Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts (1942/1983), appeared in October 2018 during the symposium Symposium: Collecting Dutch and Flemish Art in Germany 1600-1900 at the RKD in The Hague (see Programme). This event was jointly organised by the RKD and the ANKK (German organisation for the Study of Netherlandish Art and Culture /Arbeitskreis Niederländische Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte e.V.). The symposium marked the 10th anniversary of the ANKK as well as the conclusion of the RKD project on 'Nachwirkung' of Dutch and Flemish art in Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Silesia.

The annotations to Gerson's text have greatly benefited from the comments of Stefan Bartilla, Ellinoor Bergvelt, Nils Büttner, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Gero Seelig and Nicolette Sluijter-Seijffert. I thank Ursula de Goede, Claudia Hofstee, Paul van Kooij and Jan Kosten for their research assistence and contributions to the content of RKDartists and RKDimages.
