Summary note:
Based on Guilliam Forchondt's surviving business documentation in Antwerp and applying an aggregate and data-driven approach, 'Connecting Art Markets' focuses on the role of art dealers in mediating the supply and demand for art, behaving in particular ways as to influence the markets for artworks in which they were strategically invested. Van Ginhoven presents her findings on Guilliam Forchondt's workshop production volumes and transatlantic art trade flows, and evaluates the relationship between the production paintings in the Southern Netherlands, their local, regional and overseas distribution channels, and the markets for these works in Europe and the Americas during the seventeenth century.
