During my stay at NIAS a book on the so-called ‘Leiden fine-painters’ was finished. In this book an extensive study will be published in which the appraisal of these painters by their contemporaries, the terminology in which they wrote about them, the ideas these painters must have had about their profession, the situation of the art-market in Leiden and the collectors of their paintings are traced.
