Dutch and Flemish Art, 1400-1800, in the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) collection includes a fifteenth-century wool tapestry, Ecce Homo; twelve paintings; four drawings; and 115 prints. Rubens’ masterful 1632 oil sketch on wood The Road to Calvary is the centerpiece of the seven Flemish paintings, which also include works by Pourbus, School of Patinir, de Wet, and Biblical scenes by Teniers and an unknown artist. The five Dutch paintings include altarpiece side panels of saints by an unknown seventeenth-century artist, a portrait by Thomas de Keyser, and a biblical scene by de Grebber. BAMPFA has 42 Flemish prints, notably 34 etchings and engravings from Van Dyck’s Iconographia. The collection of Dutch prints include 21 prints by van Ostade, eleven prints by Bega, 9 etchings by Rembrandt, and additional works by Allaert van Everdingen, Roelant Roghman, Paulus Moreelse, Jan Lievens, Hendrick Goltzius, Nicholaes Berchem, Jan van de Velde II, Schulte Bolswert, and Ferdinand Bol.
