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).
Jacob Jordaens I painted stoffage in a vanitas still life by Boel (Saur 1996); Boel painted stoffage in pictures by Erasmus Quellinus II (Saur 1996); possibly Boel stayed with Cornelis de Wael when he was in Genoa
