In this field, you will find references to names of groups or to the artists that made/make up groups. You may also come across references to other artists if there was/is question of collaboration without a joint name. This is the case, for instance, with artists who rendered parts of works by other artists (such as with P.P Rubens and J. Brueghel I).
In 1919 a split-off of a group of employees from Binger's Filmfabriek Hollandia led to the establishment of Polygoon (Leijerzapf et al. 1984–).
