For her dissertation research The Art World of the Hanse, Suzie Hermán considers the material legacy of Hanse merchants and elicits the Low Countries as a cultural cross-road. Her study of the commercial, diplomatic, and artistic network of the Hansards and the art, architecture, city views, maps, and books commissioned by these merchants, makes insightful the ways in which they operated as producers of knowledge and agents of cultural exchange.
