Dutch Drawings of the Golden Age
During the 17th-century Dutch Golden Age, a period defined by economic prosperity and political and religious freedom, the art market flourished. Praised for their artful portrayal of the world around them, Dutch artists met the demand for luxury goods by producing vast numbers of paintings as well as highly finished drawings. This selection of landscapes, topographical views, portraits, and scenes of daily life showcases how drawings helped shaped the emerging national identity of the Dutch Republic. Exhibition: 24.07.2018 - 28.10.2018. (Text: Getty Center)
