Jan Stolker (1724 Amsterdam - 1785 Rotterdam) was trained by J.M. Quinckhardt in Amsterdam till 1747 and made such a progress, that already aged 23 he was considered one of the best Dutch portraitists of the time. After his marriage the artist settled down in Den Haag in 1753, then moved to Rotterdam in 1757. In his estate there was along with other works a collection of 155 small paintings on copper with portraits of North German painters. All these portraits were originally set in a brown colored cabinet with 16 drawers, offered two years after Stolker's death at an auction in his Rotterdamer house. The next time these 155 portraits were seen - already taken out of the cabinet - in 1853 at the auction F. Mueller in Amsterdam. It is known that the portraits were dispersed in New York during the 1940s.Twenty of them were offered by Christie's, Amsterdam on 10 November 1997, Lot 153. Lately the auction houses Tatjan/Paris, Christie's/London, Sotheby's/Amsterdam, Sotheby's/London and Christie's/New York offered many of these small portraits. The inspiration for the series came probably from Arnoud van Halen (1673-1732), who in the first decade of the 18th century painted a series of portraits of Dutch poets that was called "Panpoeticon Batavum" (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam).
