"In the Early seventeenth century a new genre of painting emerged in Antwerp : the gallery picture tipically showing an "art cabinet" (constcamer) filled to the brim with paintings and other art treasures.

"Such paintings -representing imaginary museums where art lovers, artists and other personages meet to view and discuss art- give a splendid impression of the rich culture of collecting that prevailed in Antwerp in that period.

"The overview of the development of the gallery picture focuses on the painting of Willem van Haecht, an important fonder of the genre. While working as a painter-curator for Cornelis van der Geest, Van Haecht "catalogued" his employer's collection in several splendid paintings. Special attention is also paid to a group of gallery pictures in which the paintings were executed by various masters, so that these collaborative works represent a unique sampling of the best the Antwerp school of painting had to offer."
