CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Blanton Museum of Art


Prints comprise the bulk of the approximately 1660 works of early modern Netherlandish art in the Blantonā€™s collection.Ā  Sixteenth- and seventeenth- century printmaking is well represented, along with a smaller number of examples from both the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries. Engravings by the Haarlem Mannerists are a particular strength; notable holdings also include works by the circle of printmakers formed by Peter Paul Rubens and Dutch etchings of the seventeenth century. The majority of the prints come from the Leo Steinberg Collection. The Blantonā€™s 26 Netherlandish drawings, many of which are part of the Suida-Manning Collection, span the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries. Bartholomeus Sprangerā€™s preparatory drawing for the Holy Family engraved by Goltzius is a particular jewel among the predominantly Flemish works. Three Sprangers, a Rubens, and an Wtewael are the most important of the Blantonā€™s 27 Netherlandish paintings, augmented recently by Johannes Glauberā€™sĀ Ruth and Boaz.
