invites you to

Jan Baptist Weenix and Jan Weenix:
Dutch Painters of the Golden Age

Luncheon with Presentation by
Anke A. van Wagenberg-Ter Hoeven, PhD.

Jan Baptist Weenix & Jan Weenix: The Paintings, by Anke A. Van Wagenberg-Ter Hoeven, is the result of art historical research on the work of the 17th-century Dutch artist Jan Baptist Weenix (1621-1659) and his son Jan Weenix (1641-1719). Works by both these artists can be seen in all major museums with holdings of Dutch paintings. This book fills a gap in art history and throws new light on the appreciation of Dutch art. Since 2004, hundreds of paintings have been documented as either Weenix I or Weenix II. For centuries, attributions had been confused because of the two artists’ similar subject choices and (at least for a time) similar style. Following the death of his father (and teacher), Jan gradually changed his style to conform to the more courtly taste of the late 17th and early 18th century. This is the first published monograph on Jan Baptist Weenix and his son Jan Weenix. This publication was made possible, in part, by a cultural grant from the Netherland-America Foundation.
