29 January 2020 | RotterdamĀ 

The title page of the 51-sheets Odyssey series, dated 1694 and published by Charles Dumas in the latest issue of our periodical has been acquired at auction by the Boijmans. While the issue was being distributed worldwide this drawing unexpectedly turned up in the OMD sale at Sotheby’s in New York on 29 January. It now fills a gap in the collection of the museum, which still had no drawing by the hague artist Mattheus Terwesten (1670-1757). For a full description you are referred to the article.
