Het vroegste Amsterdamse schetsboek. Een zestiende-eeuws zakboekje uit het atelier van Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen
Oostzaan 2014

A pocket-size sketchbook from the period 1520-1535 has been preserved from the workshop of Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen (ca. 1470-1533) . This extremely rare testimony of early sixteenth-century workshop practice, which is now kept in the Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin, has now been published in facsimile by the Foundation Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen, in conjunction with the monographic exhibition in Alkmaar and Amsterdam.

The sketchbook displays a high diversity in subject matter: the sketches range from copies after paintings by Jacob and his workshop, to portraits, figure studies, cityscapes, animals, perspective studies, and renaissance ornaments. Read more on the foundations own website.
