More information

Back to overview

Filip Vermeylen (born Antwerp, 1966) studied early modern European history at the universities of Antwerp and Leuven. In December 2000, he successfully defended a dissertation on the history of the Antwerp art market during the tumultuous sixteenth century at Columbia University in New York. Meanwhile in 1998, he had taken up a position as a researcher at the Rubenianum in Antwerp where he studied the complex relationship between art and economics in all its facets. The dissemination of Flemish art during the Ancien Régime was the focus of this research.

During the Summer of 2006, Filip Vermeylen joined the ranks of the Faculty of History and Arts at the Erasmus University. He teaches various courses in the Master’s program ‘Cultural Economics and Entrepreneurship’. He conducts research on a wide range of issues dealing with the economics of art and culture, with a particular focus on art markets. Since 2009 he is the project leader of NWO-research project entitled ‘Artistic exchanges and cultural transmission in the Low Countries, 1572-1672: mobility of artists, works of art and artistic knowledge’.
