Schildersbent (society of Dutch and Flemish painters in Rome, active ca. 1620-1720)

Note: The Schildersbent (Dutch for 'painters' clique') was a fraternal artists' society, notorious for its bacchic rituals and its opposition to the academic and fiscal procedures of the Roman Accademia di S. Luca. It strongly advocated artistic principles contrary to those promoted by official organizations of painters.The society, founded in ca. 1623, was primarily social, providing a meeting-place and, when needed, financial support for fellow countrymen. Its members called themselves Bentvueghels ('birds of a feather' or 'birds of a flock'). Their motto was 'Bacco, Tabacco e Venere' (Bacchus, Tobacco, and Venus (Love)). The society was dissolved by papal decree in 1720 by Pope Clement XI for mocking the sacrament of baptism: new members were given 'Bentnamen' (pseudonyms) during a baptism in wine. Other ceremonies mocked the initiation rites of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Paulus Bor was a founding member; Pieter van Laer was also a leader, ca. 1625-1638. The society also allowed some non-Netherlandish painters to join, primarily of Nordic and Germanic origins.
