CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Haggerty Museum of Art, Marquette University


The Haggerty Museum’s collection of Dutch and Flemish art is diverse and particularly intriguing given its size: about 50 paintings and 60 works on paper, with most of its holdings created between 1550 and 1650. The collection was begun with gifts of significant paintings by Marquette University donors before the founding of the Haggerty Museum in 1984, and it continues to grow through gifts and select purchases. Flemish highlights include paintings by Pieter Claeissens (I), Ambrosius and Frans Francken (II), Abel Grimmer, Willem van Herp, and Jan van den Hoecke. Among the museum’s outstanding Dutch pictures are a Judgment of Paris by Paulus Moreelse, four religious scenes by Leonaert Bramer including one on slate, and a triple portrait by Nicolaes Maes. The region’s printmaking tradition is represented through a limited number of excellent intaglio prints by artists including Philips Galle, Goltzius, Jan Saenredam, Lucas Vorsterman, Rembrandt, and Ferdinand Bol.
