Example text

When he was subsequently asked if anyone else had contributed to the piece, he shook his head. While Van der Helst may have been lying – since he only shook his head, he could always say that he had never actually said so – these sources are nonetheless telling. On the one hand, these documents indicate that it was not self-evident that a work signed and sold as by a certain master was indeed entirely executed by that master. On the other hand, they suggest that at least some painters deliberately created purely autograph works and in doing so provided both seventeenth-century buyers and present-day connoisseurs with the certainty that at least some of their works can be expected to have been done solely by their own hand.

23 The same holds true for seventeenth-century inventories and sales catalogues. 25 These six documents state that a certain work is done entirely ‘by the hand of the master’ and sometimes even specify that it was done ‘without help from others’. This seems to suggest that there was indeed an interest in purely autograph works. Jaap van der Veen believes that this was the case among well-to-do burghers who could afford the better paintings (there seems no reason to assume that issues of authenticity would have been of great concern to the producers and buyers of cheap pictures).

It is very rare indeed that one can find evidence of early connoisseurs weighing arguments when making an attribution. An imaginary dialogue written in 1677 by the Parisian writer and collector Roger de Piles, suggests that some of these early experts may have been quite sophisticated in their judgements. 4 Yet primary sources addressing these issues are scant. 6 Interestingly, the available sources seem rather ambivalent. On the one hand, surviving guild statutes indicate that it was common practice for master painters to sell works produced in collaboration with their studio assistants under their own name, as we will see.
