Made in the Netherlands: Seventeenth-Century Paintings from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague
This lecture offers a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the explosion of talent that took place within the cities of the Dutch republic in the seventeenth century – still one of the miracles of Western art. At that time, the Dutch republic was one of the most powerful countries in the world, and its rich citizens could fill their houses with many great paintings. The Mauritshuis in The Hague is the home of some of the best-known paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, including Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, Fabritius’s Goldfinch and Rembrandt’s Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.
