The Flemish Merchant of Venice Daniel Nijs and the Sale of the Gonzaga Art Collection
In between the years of 1627 and 1628, King Charles I of England managed to procure the Gonzaga art collection from the dukes of Mantua. It would go on to become the most famous art deal of the 17th century.
The Flemish Merchant of Venice explores this art transaction from the perspective of the man responsible for it happening — Daniel Nijs —a flemish merchant, art collector and dealer based in Venice. Author Christina M. Anderson paints Nijs as a more devious and cunning trader than previously thought but still argues that his commercial talents were rooted in a deep love of art.
It includes detailed illustrations of ancient works of art from the likes of Raphael, Correggio and Rubens, as well as countless treasures and jewellery.
