Seventeenth century Dutch-Danish painter Pieter Isaacsz rediscovered


Pieter Isaacsz, portrait of King Christian IV of Denmark

From Leiden University in the Netherlands:

Denmark honours forgotten Dutch-Danish painter

In Frederiksborg castle near Copenhagen, there is an exhibition about the Dutch-Danish painter Pieter Isaacsz (1568-1625). [Dutch] art historian Juliette Roding discovered this forgotten artist in the late 1980s during her PhD research. Because of his ‘mixed message nationality’ [as nationalists tend to say] Isaacsz for a long time was ignored in art history. This is for the first time that so many of Isaacsz’ works can be seen together.
