Jeroen Luyckx (PhD Candidate at Illuminare – KU Leuven) has published a catalogue of all prints produced and published by the Liefrinck dynasty. The two-volume catalogue appeared in the peer-reviewed series The New Hollstein Dutch & Flemish. Huigen Leeflang (Curator at the Rijksmuseum) is the editor of the volumes.
The Liefrinck family was a Netherlandish dynasty of printmakers that consisted of three generations and was active for over a century. From c. 1500 until the turn of the seventeenth century various family members were involved in printmaking and publishing, producing a highly diverse output. This fully illustrated catalogue brings together almost 400 woodcuts, etchings and engravings, including dozens of undescribed prints, states and editions. For the first time print scholars and enthusiasts are able to explore the variety of prints produced by the Liefrinck family and discover the changing preferences for different techniques and genres throughout several generations.
