Molly K. Dorkin

Prior to the 20th century, the attribution of works of art was not governed by rigid regulations, and art dealers and auctioneers assigned attributions based purely on aesthetic grounds. Works were attributed to the artist whose manner they most closely resembled, but they were not further distinguished on the basis of quality; as a result, many paintings purchased as Renaissance masterpieces in the 18th or 19th century have since been downgraded to studio works or even much later pastiches....

Haarlem School.

Frans Hals belonged to one of the founding families of Haarlem. His parents, for reasons that are unknown, went to live in Antwerp for several years, during which time the artist was born. They must have returned to Haarlem before 1600, when their second son, Dirk, was born there. Hals was a pupil of Karel van Mander until no later than 1603. In 1610, Hals married Annetgen Harmensdr and became a member of the painter’s guild of Haarlem. Their son Herman Hals, born in 1611, later became a painter. Annetgen died in 1615. It has been stated that Hals had to answer charges of ill-treatment against his first wife, but it is now known they were in fact brought against his cousin of the same name. On 12 February 1617, he married Lysbeth Reyniers, and a daughter, Sara, was born on 21 February 1617. Other children followed: Frans, between 1617 and 1622; Adiaentgen, on 21 July 1623; Jacobus, on 13 December 1624; Reynier in 1627; Nicolaes, on 25 July 1628; and Maria, on 11 November 1631. Hals was never rich, burdened as he was with having to provide for a large family. It is said that, around 1650, he hoped to generate new income by opening up a teaching studio. Hals was criticised for his behaviour to his pupil Adriaen Brauwer, who purportedly fled Hals’ studio in order to avoid intolerable abuse. On the other hand, biographers of Adriaen van Ostade, another of Hals’ apprentices, make no mention of the master behaving violently towards his pupils....
