Through her fault there was an exchange of art between the courts in Dusseldorf and Florence. As were paintings by Raphael, Andrea del Sarto, Domini Chino and Federico Barocci to Germany, while the Medici collections were complemented with paintings by Flemish and Dutch painters. Some names: Jan Frans van Douven, Bartholomeus van Douven, Godfried Schalcken, Frans van Mieris (I), Adriaan van der Werff, Jan van Kessel, Peeter Neeffs, Frans Francken (II), Dirck van den Bergen, Theodor Verkruys, Nicolaes Berchem and Pieter Mulier. Back in Florence (1716), she was the originator of many artists. Anna Maria Luisa arranged in her will that all property of the family de 'Medici would accrue to the Florentine state, provided that none of those possessions ever allowed to leave Florence.
