Although I hold a number of photographs and works, the story would be incomplete without the many contributions from other sources, both family members and others who contacted me after seeing the website. All photographs reproduced on this website carry an acknowledgement of the source but I have also listed the main contributors below.
When I set up the website many years ago, I was pleased to discover that The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam had instituted a very forward looking initiative by making high resolution files of its works of art available for download, free of copyright restrictions. As a result, I was able to add a number of photographs to certain sections of the website that needed additional material.
Several more institutions have now followed the Rijksmuseum’s lead and made work more freely available. Those that concern us here are principally the Museum of Rotterdam and, more recently, The British Museum.
The British Museum now permits the non-commercial use of many its images under the Creative Commons licence. As a result, I have been free to add an etching, the portrait of Elisabeth Bas after Rembrandt, that I think represents his best work.
