A busy first six months of 2019 for JVDPPP: now over 230 panels examined



It has been a busy first six months of 2019 for JVDPPP. Further research has led to new findings on Van Dyck and Jordaens paintings, which are being prepared for publication. Previously unknown panel makers’ marks have been identified, previously unpublished archival research has gone through stringent transcription, translation and checking against the original sources and important articles already published in Dutch, French and German have been prepared for publication in English. The second half of 2019 will see the release online and in open access of these findings and publications, as well as an update of the image database, and the video of the JVDPPP talk on the Royal Hospital Chelsea’s version of Van Dyck’s Greate Peece, which was successfully repeated in April 2019.

Soon to be translated for your convenience

The number of paintings examined has broken the 200 barrier and risen to 232. After examinations in the Royal Collection, through the kind permission of H.M. The Queen, the JVDPPP team embarked on a U.S. tour of nine collections in seven days from Yale to Boston, through Ohio and ending up at the Getty on the west coast. We are, as always, extremely grateful to all the curators and conservators who kindly give us so much of their time and take paintings from the walls of their museums so that we can examine them.

Visitors at the Columbus Museum of Art missed a Jordaens (but only for a few hours)

We thank the Royal Collection Trust; Yale University Art Gallery; the Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Worcester Art Gallery, MA; Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin, OH; Toledo Museum of Art, OH; Columbus Museum of Art, OH; the Getty Museum, Los Angeles; as well as private collectors in the United States, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Luxembourg.
