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).
According to Houbraken, Vorstermans was an advisor to the Marquis in purchasing works of art, including a Holy Family of Frans van Mieris; however, the marquis was not prepared to purchase the painting for 1500 guilders because it was not finished at the death of the artist (RKDimages 2501 or 20258).
