Brosens, Koenraad, review of Sandra Van Ginhoven’s ‘Connecting Art Markets’

Sandra van Ginhoven, Connecting Art Markets. Guilliam Forchondt’s Dealership in Antwerp (c.1632–78) and the Overseas Paintings Trade, Studies in the History of Collecting & Art Markets I, Christian Huemer ed., Boston (Brill) 2017. ix, 288 pp., 71 full color ill. ISBN 9789004319745; E-ISBN 9789004334830


Sandra van Ginhoven’s Connecting Art Markets. Guilliam Forchondt’s Dealership in Antwerp (c.1632–78) and the Overseas Paintings Trade is an ambitious and valiant book. The result of doctoral dissertation research conducted at Duke University under the auspices of Hans J. Van Miegroet and Neil De Marchi, the study is a beautifully argued analysis of the commercial activities and strategies of pivotal Antwerp art entrepreneur Guilliam Forchondt (1608–1678) between about 1643 and 1678. It explores and explains the entrepreneurship of this chef d’enterprise in an unassuming, highly effective and pioneering manner.

La Boverie, Parc de la Boverie, 4020 Liège

22 September 2016 to 29 January 2017

The idea for this exhibition came from reading the book 21 rue La Boétie (Grasset) by Anne Sinclair, in which the author tells the story of her grandfather, Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), one of the great art dealers of the first half of the last century. The career of this exceptional man, a successful businessman and knowledgeable art lover, the friend and agent of Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger, Marie Laurencin, to name but some of the most well-known artists, serves as the guiding theme through a much wider history than his own, one in which he was both actor and victim. In other words, an exhibition on art and civilization, with the legendary gallery of Paul Rosenberg serving as the pivot to 20th century period paintings that combines the history of art, social and political history and the history of mentalities as these unfolded in France, Europe and the United States.
