Jan Piet Filedt Kok
October - October 2002
Jan Piet Filedt Kok, keeper of the department of paintings at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Holland, is author of Lucas van Leyden, the catalogue for the 1978 exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, and co-author of Livelier Than Life: The Master of the Amsterdam Cabinet, or The Housebook Master, ca. 1470-1500, published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam. At the Clark, he will work with Walter S. Gibson in developing a monograph on the early Netherlandish painter Cornelis Engebrechtsz. Building upon Gibson’s thesis of 1969, Filedt Kok’s recent investigations into the underdrawings and technical aspects of the artist’s paintings provide additional insight into the working methods and studio practices of the artist and his workshop.
