Masterful Likeness: Dutch Drawings of the Golden Age

Exhibition: 24 July - 28 October 2018

In the 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 in the seventeenth-century met the demand for luxury goods by creating vast numbers of highly finished drawings. This selection of landscapes, topographical views, portraits, and scenes of daily life showcase how drawings helped shaped the emerging national identity of the Dutch Republic.
