The presentation centers around Rembrandt’s Old Woman Praying, with Dutch and Flemish paintings from the same period, which the Province of Salzburg acquired from the Viennese collection of Count Czernin, and which are amongst the most valuable painting collections in the Province. On display are pioneering landscape paintings by Jan van Goyen, Aelbert Cuyp, Paulus Potter and Salomon van Ruysdael, as well as the famous breakfast still life by Jan Davidsz. de Heem. The Dutch painting of the age is further represented by portraits and genre paintings, and the exhibition is rounded off with highlights from the French, Italian and Austrian Baroque.
