BOOKSALE Aetas Aurea, vol. VII. Scholary catalogue raisonné, including authentic and works, unresolved and doubtful attributions, with appendices, bibliography, indices. This study establishes for the first time Adam Pynacker's place of origin, the formation and development of his style as well as his contribution to the field of Dutch Italianate landscape painting. Pynacker's early paintings, dating from around 1648, are shown to reinforce Houbraken's statement that he visited Italy during the second half of the 1640s. In an in depth study of the artist's output of the 1650s, it is also demonstrated that Pynacker was familiar with the work of his contemporary Dutch Italianates, among them Jan Both, Jan Asselyn and Nicolaes Berchem. His relation with them as well as with a number of other Dutch painters, including the Rotterdam artist Ludolf de Jongh, is explored throughout the book.
