Subjects
This field specifies the various subject categories or genres that constitute the oeuvre of the artist in question. The contents of this field are generally based more on the documentation available at the RKD than on the literature.
landscape (as genre)
mentioned in Antwerp inventories as a painter of landscapes; he also seems to have painted birds in landscapes (Willigen/Kinkelder). The only landscape associated with him up till now (Images no. 188294) on the grounds of a partial signature (P. Wi...) has been rejected by curator M. de Kinkelder: according to her it is by a Dutch follower of Herman Saftleven or J. Griffier.
