Recent Discoveries on Antwerp Panel Makers' Marks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


There still exist today uncertainties and misunderstandings in our interpretation of panel makers' marks from early 17th century Antwerp. In the future, panel marks and the panels on which they can be found will certainly render much more information concerning the technology of that time. Still more can be added to our comprehension of the way the panel makers worked in Antwerp. In the following paper I shall give a brief summary of the present state of research, as well as outline the complicated task of interpreting these marks and their use as a dating tool. The ready-made supports of that period will also be discussed.
