The Arts

In the 17th century, the Dutch Republic was the center of global trade and the site of a vibrant artistic culture. Dutch artists distinguished themselves as great innovators, introducing new subjects, including virtuosic still lives, expansive landscapes, and detailed city views as well as finding new ways to conceive portraits. Join Antien Knaap, curatorial research fellow, Art of Europe to explore innovations in the production and market for Dutch art in the 17th century. Highlights works by Rembrandt, Hals, and Ruisdael on view.
