This exhibition focuses on two major acquisitions made by the National Gallery of Scotland in recent years: Abraham Bloemaert’s splendid painting Miracle of the loaves, and Hendrick Goltzius’ extraordinary drawing of a Bust of a man with a tasselled cap. Both are outstanding examples of so called “Dutch Mannerism”. Goltzius, as the most important artist of this generation, is represented with a range of impressive drawings and engravings. Around these masterpieces will be shown a selection of fine graphic art by his contemporaries, Jacob Matham, Jan Saenredam, and Jacques de Gheyn. This display highlights little known treasures of the collection and celebrates the ‘Dawn of the Golden Age’ of Dutch art.
