Abstract

HERMAN DE LA FONTAINE VERWEY Gerard Thibault and his Academie de l'espée INTRODUCTION Amsterdam at the beginning of the seventeenth century - a subject which could ever be exhausted? Surely there is always bound to be something new to say about the fantastic expansion of the port which was beginning to take over the role hitherto played by Antwerp; the tripling of the population within forty years thanks to immigration, mainly from the Southern Netherlands; the new enlargement of the city with the creation of the ring of concentric canals, begun in 1612; the buildings of Hendrick de Keyser; and so on and so forth. Coupled with these developments there was a growing interest on the part of the citizenry at large not only in theological questions, which were to lead to much unrest, but also in art and culture, sports and recreation - areas which were invaded by a new spirit, that of the late Renaissance. This was not yet the time of Amsterdam's great painters; instead, there was an abundance of minor artists. A Southerner like Francisco Badens, whom people called 'the Italian painter', attracted large numbers of pupils. The love of drama and poetry made
