Abstract

Counts Albert, William and John of Bavaria had officials to maintain an extensive financial administration. These account books are used to form some new insights on the artistic climate of Holland between 1358 and 1422. In 1422 Jan van Eyck appears on the steps of the Binnenhof in The Hague. Accurate study on the drawing of the ‘Fishing party’ in the Louvre, with portrayals of the member of the Holland-Bavarian court, has been undertaken with new technologies and a new focus on the use of color. Another technical research concerns the iconography of some leeves of the Egmond breviarium made for the duke of Gelders in the 1420’s by an group the Zweder masters, a group of Utrecht miniatures.
