During the years 1627 and 1628, Charles I of England purchased the cream of the Gonzaga art collection, belonging to the dukes of Mantua, in what would become the greatest art deal of the 17th century. Among the treasures sold were ancient statues and stunning paintings by Titian, Raphael, Correggio, and Rubens. This book examines this fascinating and significant art sale from the perspective of the man who orchestrated it—Daniel Nijs (1572–1647), a Flemish merchant, collector, and dealer living in Venice. Christina M. Anderson brings Nijs to life, asserting that he was more than the avaricious and unscrupulous trader that most modern writers and scholars deem him to be. Anderson’s evocative text describes Nijs’s unique talent as a dealer, rooted in superior commercial skills, connections to artistic and diplomatic circles, and a deep love of art. The narrative reveals that Nijs was ultimately the pivotal figure involved with the Gonzaga sale, though also—when he later fell into bankruptcy and dishonor due to a deal gone awry—the most tragic. 
Reviews about The Flemish Merchant of Venice: Daniel Nijs and the Sale of the Gonzaga Art Collection (2):
Akirg
This is a meticulously researched and highly readable, often gripping, account of how wealth--in the form of art--was transferred among the European aristocracy and royal houses in the seventeenth century. Charles I was one of the greatest art collectors of the age, and this account of how the Flemish merchant Daniel Nijs brokered his acquisition of much of the Gonzaga family art collection, rulers of Mantua, offers a window into luxury commerce long before anyone thought of calling it that. This is a saga of awesome wealth, spectacular art, grave risk, and the rise and fall of an ingenious but little-known man behind the scenes. Knowing Charles I's eventual fate, and the fate of his collection, makes the story all the more poignant and compelling.

Christina M. Anderson has transformed an intensive examination of many archival sources into a highly readable account of the life and activities of a pivotal figure of seventeenth-century art commerce. Not unusually for this period before merchants specialized in the art trade, Nijs was deeply involved in a much wider network of trade. This volume brings much-needed clarity to Nijs's role in one of the most important transactions of the seventeenth century -- Charles I of England's purchase of works from the Gonzaga collection of Mantua -- demonstrating the personal financial risk Nijs took in securing the paintings and antiquities. More broadly, the volume sheds light on the ways in which fine art were traded, valued, and collected during this period.
