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).
Rubens painted staffage on four paintings by Saftleven (Denuncé 1932, p. 69); in 1634 he painted, together with his brother Herman, a family portrait at Castle Haarzuylen, near Utrecht (City) (Thieme/Becker 1935).
