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).
Volgens Gerson zou Miel o.a. schilderijen van Claude Lorrain hebben gestoffeerd. Hoewel een samenwerking vaak genoemd wordt in oude veilingcatalogi, kunnen de figuren bij Lorrain nergens aan Miel worden toegeschreven.

    "While reading Willem Schellinks’ Dagh-Register (ms in Copenhagen Royal Library, NKS 370 4o), I noticed a reference to Jan Miel, which may interest you. In the second volume, p. 521, Schellinks writes (for December 5, 1663): “Na noen ginge bezoeken de cavalier Joan Miell alias de Honingh-bie, een treffelijk en vermaart schilder, was door den Hertog begiftight met de ridderlijke order van St Maurice et la Sale. Toonden hij ons alle zijne konst en ook van verscheijdene andere meesters meer…” (After noon I went visiting the cavalier Joan Miell alias the Honingh-bie, a great and famous painter, was gifted by the Duke with the chivalrous order of St Maurice et la Sale. He did show us all his artwork and also of several other masters ... ". I suppose Honingh-bie must be his bentveugel name. "(Communication by email from David Burmeister Kaaring, Museumsinspektør, Editorial Board, Curator, Nationalmuseet, Copenhagen, September 23, 2010). In April 1664 died in Turin.
