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).
Jan Gerritsz. van Bronckhorst made a few etchings after paintings by Poelenburch.

Biographical information
Period of activity
1620 - 1667
his earliest signed painting is from 1620 (Sluijter-Seijffert 1986, p. 26); the earliest drawing is probably from a few years before that (Chong 1987)
Active in
  • Rome 1617 - 1625
    The archive researcher Christiaan Kramm (1797-1875) was the first to mention that when in Rome, Poelenburch signed the album amoricum of Wybrand Symonsz de Geest (1592 - c. 1661), a portrait painter from Leeuwarden. Poelenburch wrote the first out of five verses from the canzone dei baci (by Gianbattista Guarini): Baci soavi, e cari ... ending with: Cornelis van poelenburch in roomen 1617. Of course it is possible that Poelenburch arrived in Rome one or two years before that. According to Sluijter-Seijffert he was not one of the co-founders of the Schildersbent in 1623.
