Information from the museum, 29 January 2013
Teylers Museum is exhibiting a unique collection of 17th-century Dutch drawings from the private collection of Clement C. Moore in New York. The works are by the great masters of their day, such as Hendrick Avercamp, Abraham Bloemaert, Adriaen van Ostade and Rembrandt. Rapid pen-and-ink figure studies, watercolours depicting landscapes in exquisite colours, and meticulously executed animal studies in chalk show some of the rich fund of draughtsmanship that characterises the Golden Age. For three months, these remarkable drawings will be back in the Netherlands.
