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 1646 Michel van Lochom helped Jacques van Merlen, the son of his master Abraham van Merlen, in the establishement of his own printing workshop in Paris. After van Lochom's death, on September 29th 1651, his widow leased the house 'La Rose blanche couronnée' for 6 years to Jacques van Merlen (Saur 2015). On January 29th 1653, Marguerite Lenoir sold Balthazar Moncornet half of 'La Rose Blanche couronnée' for 4000 livres; the other half of the house belonged to Pierre I Mariette because of his wife Genevieve Lenoir (Grivel 1986).
