This publication is a workable
chronology for Cornelis Schut?s paintings with an analysis of style,
iconography and patronage, taking into account past
This publication is a monograph on the
Antwerp artist, whose surviving oeuvre dates from the mid-1620s to the
1650s. A prolific master whose known paintings number over one hundred,
Schut achieved considerable succes during his lifetime. This study sets
Schut's life and career within the context of the artistic and
cultural milieu of his time, defining his role in the emergence of a
new style after the death of Rubens in 1640, and considers his impact
on future generations. A workable chronology for Schut's paintings
is established through an analysis of style, iconography and patronage,
taking into account past scholarship. The artists's working methods
and studio practices and his output in other media are also discussed.
A separate chapter is devoted to the numerous graland pictures he
executed in collaboration with the Jesuit flower painter Daniel
Seghers. A complete catalogue raisonné of Schut's paintings, the
first of its kind, is presented.
