    Full Name: Brockhaus, Heinrich

    Gender: male

    Date Born: 1858

    Date Died: unknown

    Subject Area(s): documentaries (documents), documentary (general concept), and Renaissance


    Scholar of renaissance art; documentary approach. In 1902 Brockhaus found a 17th-century copy of Apollonio di Giovanni’s and Marco del Buono’s workshop book, a fragmentary record of commissions. This led to its publication by Paul Schubring in 1915. This in turn made possible the idenitification of Apollonio di Giovanni (di Tomaso), also known as the Dido Master or Master of the Jarves Cassoni.
