CommentaryThe merchant Anthonie Thysz., the son of Hans Thysz. de oude of INVNO 690, was born in 1594 (Gelderblom, Zuid-Nederlandse kooplieden, p. 272). He was the brother of Augustijn (born about 1586), Hans (born in 1592), and Franciscus (Francoijs) (born 1593), who all predeceased him (Gelderblom, loc. cit.) He was betrothed to Elisabeth de Bacher, daughter of Andreas de Bacher, on 23 June 1621. On 22 February 1627, after the death of his first wife, Anthonie Thysz., assisted by his uncle Anthonie Thyskens, professor of theology at the University of Leyden, 32 years old, was betrothed to Magdalena Beltens, from Amsterdam, 27, assisted by her father Pieter Belten (de oude) (DTB 432/66). On 9 June 1630, the couple had their daughter Levina baptized in the O.K. in the presence of Constantinus Lempruer (l'Empereur) and Juffr. Constantia Coymans (wife of Pieter Belten de jonge, the brother of Magdalena Pieter Beltens) (DTB 6/275). Constantin l'Empereur was the husband of Catherina Thijs, the sister of Anthonie. On 25 May 1631, Anthonie and Magdalena had their son Pieter baptized in the presence of Pieter Wachtendorp (Wachtendonck?) and Janneken de Raet (DTB 6/306). On 9 May 1632, they had a son named Anthony baptized in the presence of Jacques Beltesz. and Abigael Thijssen (DTB 6/336). After the death of this first Anthonie, they again had a son of that name baptized in the N.K. on 29 May 1633, in the presence of Joanna Bevers (DTB 41/254). Anthony died before 8 September 1634, when he was said to be zaliger (Tysz. archive, 112 F 6). Magdalena remarried with Anthonie's cousin Christoffel Thysz. (the son of Franchoijs Thysz., the brother of Hans Thysz. de oude) in the same year 1634. Christoffel Thysz. and his wife Magdalena Beltens sold their house on the Breestraet to Rembrandt on 5 January 1639 (Strauss, Rembrandt Documents, p. 158). For another inventory, partially overlapping with the present inventory, but taken after Magdalena's remarriage with Christoffel Thijsz., see INVNO 1089. In a note on the assets and liabilities of the estate of the late Anthonie Thys, dated 8 September 1634, it was said that de resterende ongedeelde schilderijen ende boecken, which could be kept or sold (te vercopen staen), were appraised at 1070 f. (Thys Archive, University of Leiden, 112 F 6). Since many of the paintings in the present inventory were inherited by Magdalena Belten (INVNO 1089), they could not be undistributed, at least subsequently.
