CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Art Gallery of South Australia


The Art Gallery of South Australia’s (AGSA) collection of more than 48,000 works of art includes significant holdings of works by Dutch and Flemish artists across the media of paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings. Outstanding paintings include a selection of landscapes by Jacob van Ruisdael and Salomon van Ruysdael, still-life paintings by Jan van Os and Pieter Claesz. as well as important works by Ambrosius Benson and Peeter Neeffs. Dutch and Flemish works form a key component of AGSA’s old master prints and drawings collection (numbering 28,000) with strong representation of prints by artists such as Rembrandt, the Sadeler family, Lucas van Leyden and Hendrick Goltzius.

AGSA embraces a cross-cultural and transhistorical approach to interpretation and display of its important collection of art. Historic and contemporary works of art co-exist to trace underlying ideas that have preoccupied artists for thousands of years. Recontextualising AGSA’s collection offers the opportunity to create new connections and highlight the multiplicity of narratives across art history.
