CODART (International Network of Curators of Dutch and Flemish Art) have shared news that the Städel Museum have published a new two volume catalogue of their German Paintings. The catalogue covers the period of 1550-1725 and was edited by Almut Pollmer-Schmidt with Christiane Weber and Fabian Wolf.

According to the brief write-up:

 The two-volume catalogue includes new research on paintings by Adam Elsheimer, Georg Flegel, Johann Heinrich Roos and others who are closely related to their Dutch contemporaries. In addition, several paintings have been re-attributed to Dutch artists, including a self-portrait by Wallerant Vaillant (1623-1677). 

All the works have been examined in detail from the perspective of both art history and painting technology based on the most recent scientific methods. The incorporation of the respective cultural-historical background gives rise to new insights regarding the creation, attribution, identification, or interpretation of the individual paintings. The overview provides insights into the history of the collection, exhibitions, and research, and opens up a panorama of multi-layered art production in early modern Germany.
