Published in conjunction with an exhibition held at the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen, November 8, 2008 - February 1, 2009, this book discusses the conservation, restoration, and research of one of the most imposing paintings in the collection: Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678) "The Tribute Money: Peter Finding the Silver Coin in the Mouth of the Fish", also called "The Ferry Boat from Antwerp", circa 1623. Articles by various scholars discuss the painting, the artist, the treatment history and recent restoration, an analysis of the artist at work, a similar painting from Amsterdam, and the provenance and reception of "The Tribute Money." Profusely illustrated, primarily in color with a few vintage black and white photographs.
