Early Netherlandish, Dutch, Flemish and Belgian Paintings 1494–1983 in the Collections of the National Museum in Warsaw and the Palace at Nieborów. Complete Illustrated Summary Catalogue opens a new series of the NMW catalogues which aims to present the collections as organized in art schools. It is the result of years of efforts of curators from the former Department of Foreign Painting: Hanna Benesz and Maria Kluk and includes up-to-date research related to this part of the collection. Each of the 973 catalogue entries features a high-quality colour illustration (full-page in the case of major works) complemented with basic information concerning the painting including a brief artist biography, a precisely established provenance, references to iconographic sources, a bibliography and a short commentary wherever questions of attribution or iconography require it.
The catalogue encompasses the entirety of the collection of Netherlandish (1494–1600), Dutch, Flemish and Belgian painting until 1983, including less important works and copies for the aim of full documentation. Also included are the works which have recently been returned to their owners after being stored for decades in the Museum. Volume 1 (714 pages) covers signed and attributed works, while volume 2 (392 pages) comprises works of anonymous masters, a concordance and numerous indexes facilitating the knowledge of the collections, their iconography and history of collecting. The academic editors of the catalogue are Hanna Benesz and Piotr Borusowski and the English-language publication has been supervised by linguistic editor Anna Kiełczewska and editor Jennifer Moore-Tymowska.
