Notwithstanding the humble offerings of Netherlandish Art from the 1400 to the 1800 at the Denver Art Museum—twelve works in total—there are some that deserve attention, such as the Nativity with the Adoration of the Shepherds, by the Master of the Brunswick Diptych, ca. 1500, from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and landscapes by Jan Van Goyen, 1636 and E. Ruytenbach 1663, , gifts from Bernard Polak. In 1913, Robert S. and Gay Ellen Lasher donated three etchings by Rembrandt—The Second Oriental Head, 1635, Young Man in a Velvet Cap with Books beside him (Ferdinand Bol?), 1637, and Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife, 1634.
