The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida holds one of the finest art collections in the Southeast United States, with more than 5,000 objects in its permanent collection. The collection is particularly strong from the Baroque period forward in time to the mid-twentieth century. Highlights from its holdings of nearly 150 Dutch and Flemish works include Pieter Aertsen’s Parable of the Marriage Feast (ca. 1550-1554), Peter Paul Rubens’ The Lamentation (ca. 1605), Theodoor Rombouts’ The Concert (ca. 1620), Frans Snyders’ Still Life with Fruit and Flowers (ca. 1630), Jan Steen’s The Continence of Scipio (late 1660s), and Huntsman with Dogs and Game (ca. 1650) by Pieter Thys (1624-1677) and Pieter Boel (1622-1674).
