A book about Jan Wijnants and Philip Wouvermann and one unidentified paiting.
Googlle trasnlation is pasted below with annotation to this book:
"Works that have not retained authorship occupy a special place in the works of the masters who created them. The painting “Collections on Falconry,” which is stored in the St. Petersburg collection of Irina and Yuri Vasilyev, has long been considered a work by an unknown artist.
Museum restoration revealed his affiliation to the Dutch school of painting of the XVII century.
Researcher of the Department of Western European Art of the Hermitage Sergey Stroganov, by analyzing the paintings stored in various museums around the world and first of all at the Hermitage, proved that this painting was created around 1663 by the famous master of idealized landscape Jan Vijnants and the famous “horse artist” Philips Vauverman . All over the world there are only eight paintings created jointly by these two largest Dutch artists of the XVII century. The discovery of original authors allows to introduce new features in the understanding of the works of masters and their place in the history of art."
Jan Jansz Wijnants (alternatively Wynants) (1620 – buried 23 January 1684) was a Dutch Golden Age painter.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
