Brockhaus, Heinrich

Full Name
Brockhaus, Heinrich
Date Born

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.
