Recycling Netherlandish Paintings in Eighteenth-century France

Book Section

Pilot study of the market share of Netherlandish imagery on the Paris art market in the early eighteenth century. This study shows that Netherlandish imagery comprised more than 50% of the works offered for sale. Theses paintings were neither smaller, nor cheaper than Italian paintings. This challenges long held beliefs about the predominance of Italian art, and the corresponding marginality of Netherlandish art in early modern France.
