Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt features outstanding examples of 17th-century Dutch painting from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition surveys the Dutch Golden Age, featuring all the subjects for which the Dutch are well known, from landscapes to still lifes, portraiture to scenes of everyday life, as well as paintings of biblical and ancient subjects. The exhibition highlights works from two recent gifts to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, including paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals, and other celebrated 17th-century Dutch artists.
The exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and presented in St. Louis by the Betsy and Thomas Patterson Foundation. The St. Louis presentation is curated by Judith W. Mann, curator of European art to 1800, and Elizabeth Wyckoff, curator of prints, drawings, and photographs, with Heather Hughes, senior research assistant in prints, drawings, and photographs.
Additional funding is provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
