Stone traders initially based in the Meuse valley, the Van Neurenberg family expanded northwards to Nijmegen and Dordrecht from 1530 on, becoming an international trading company in the process. Their subsequent activities reflect the huge changes the Dutch building sector underwent during the 17th century. They cooperated with the most famous artists of their time, such as Hendrick de Keyser in Amsterdam, and were involved in the most modern building projects of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Frederik Hendrik of Orange’s Honselaarsdijk Palace. This study offers new insights into a relatively neglected aspect of Netherlandish building history in the 16th and 17th century.
