Until very recently only twelve paintings by the seventeenth-century artist Hercules Segers were known. Extensive research by a team of specialists from the Rijksmuseum has now added six more to his oeuvre. Four of these works were previously practically unknown. The most recent attribution of a painting to Segers took place last week. It brings the total number of paintings that can be securely attributed to Segers to eighteen. All the ‘new’ paintings, which are in private collections, will be on show along with a hundred and ten prints by the artist in 'Hercules Segers', which runs from 7 October 2016 to 8 January 2017. This exhibition in the Rijksmuseum will present the most complete retrospective of the artist ever seen.
