6. Early Netherlandish, Dutch and Flemish Paintings in Polish Collections

Hanna Benesz

The present paper, based on a lecture given during the CODART congress in Utrecht devoted to Dutch and Flemish art in Poland (2004)1 has been revised, updated and provided with the more recent bibliographical references. It aims at outlining the history of collecting Low Countries painting in Poland, presenting the topography of contemporary institutions indulging in that activity, and pointing out the most important groups of works. It also intends to serve as a guide to further written references.

This article has been added to Gerson Digital : Poland in August 2014. English text by the author, edited by Brian Capstick.
