Exhibition: 30 June - 27 September 2009

From the museum website, 17 June 2009

In European painting history, the 17th century was known as the “Golden Age.” To introduce the various aspects of the “Golden Age”, the exhibition is divided into three chapters: 1. “The Golden Age” and its Dark Territories, 2. Travel and “The Scientific Revolution” and 3. “The Century of Saints: the Successors to the Ancients?”

71 treasures from the Louvre including Vermeer’s ’The Lacemaker,’ Rembrandt’s ’Self-portrait,’ Poussin’s ’The Finding of Moses,’ and La Tour’s ’Joseph the Carpenter’ among others, will be exhibited.
