On 28 and 29 October 2007 CODART and Walter Liedtke of the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, will organize a two-day CODART study trip on the occasion of the exhibition The age of Rembrandt: Dutch paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the publication of the first catalogue of those holdings.
About the exhibition
The Metropolitan Museum is home to the finest collection of Dutch art outside of Europe and all 228 of these masterpieces will be displayed together for the first time. Broadly outlining how the collection was formed, the exhibition will reflect the taste for Dutch art in America and among New York’s great collectors of the past two centuries. CODART members will also be able to visit the exhibitions Drawings and prints from Holland’s Golden Age: highlights from the collection and Tapestry in the Baroque: threads of splendor. The first exhibition will display a selection of drawings and prints by artists active in Holland during the 17th century, chosen from the Museum’s collection. The works will include pieces by Rembrandt van Rijn, Jacob van Ruisdael, Albert Cuyp, Adriaen van Ostade, Willem Buytewech, and Jacques de Gheyn II. The tapestry exhibition will show designs by Rubens and Jordaens and tapestries woven by Brussels as well as other capitals.
About the study trip
As participant in this trip you will have an excellent opportunity to see and study the collection (Monday the museum is closed to the public, but not to us!), enjoy guided tours by curators, discuss the works and network with your colleagues. The program will be organized by CODART, Walter Liedtke, and Rika Burnham of the Met’s Education department.
