CODART have shared news that the curators of the Serlachius Museums in Mänttä and Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden are looking for works by the elusive Monogrammist I.S. This in aid of an upcoming exhibition on the unknown master, which is scheduled to open in Finland in August 2025, and moving to Leiden the following year.

According to the website:

The two museums are collaborating on an exhibition about the work of this enigmatic artist, who was active between 1632 and 1658. Little is known about his or her identity, except that they seem to have worked in Leiden and traveled through Scandinavia and/or Eastern Europe.
