CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Genre scenes, portraits and still-life: Dutch and Flemish painting of the 16th and 17th Centuries

Exhibition: 16 September 2012 - 27 January 2013

Complementing the large loan show from the Speed will be a smaller focus exhibition curated by Christian Gerstheimer of the El Paso Museum of Art: Genre Scenes,Portraits and Still-life: Dutch and Flemish Painting of the 16th and 17th Centuries. With loans from institutions such as the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation, the Menil Collection, and the Dallas Museum of Art, the show will outline the historic and socio-economic contexts that influenced the art created by Dutch and Flemish artists of the late 16th and 17th centuries. Concentrating on the glorious and transformative period referred to as the Golden Age in Dutch painting, the exhibition will present El Paso audiences with an important area of European art that is not a strength of our own collections.
