The Quellinus sculptors in 17th-century Europe

The Quellinus sculptors in 17th-century Europe: artistic styles, professional network and clients.

The Foundation is supporting Wendy Frère’s research for her doctoral thesis (Université Libre de Bruxelles) under the supervision of Didier Martens and Valerie Herremans (Antwerp, KMSK). It focuses on the place of the Quellinus sculptors in the history of baroque sculpture in the former Southern Netherlands and the impact of family networks in Europe.
