Tummers's exceptionally innovative study treats the crucial and significantly understudied questions of what constituted artistic originality and authenticity, individual style, and artistic judgment in the seventeenth century. These are tremendously important questions for the current practice of art history, whether in the academy or the museum, because they highlight the necessity of rethinking how we evaluate authenticity today.
