Hier wordt vermeld waar de kunstenaar (langere tijd) heeft gewerkt en in welke periode. Ook relevante studiereizen worden hier vermeld.
  • Gorinchem
  • Utrecht (stad) 1625
    c. 1625 student of Gerard van Honthorst, signed together with his fellow student Gerard van Kuijll as a witness the will of Gerard van Honthorst's wife in 1625 (Tissink / De Wit 1987, p. 26)
  • Gorinchem 1627-09 - 1627
    signed on 29 September 1627 as a witness to the will that Gerard van Kuijl had drafted at notary Abraham Aertsz. Kemp in Gorinchem. He probably left shortly afterwards, together with Gerard van Kuijl, to Italy (Sluijter 1977, p. 168).
  • Rome 1627 - 1629
    According to Hoogewerff 1915 in Rome since 1623 and co-founder of the 'Bent' of Dutch/Flemish painters (Hoogewerff 1952, p. 146). Lived with Giovanni di Filippo del Campo (Sandrart): this Alessandro (Hoogewerff 1942, p. 21) living in Via Margutta is probably not Alexander van Wevelinckhoven (Sluijter 1977, p. 168, note 13) and it seems unlikely that he would be in Rome as early as 1623. After his apprenticeship with Gerard van Honthorst around 1625 he went to Rome where he died in 1629 (Tissink / De Wit 1987, p. 26).
