CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

High Museum of Art

Information

The High Museum’s collection of Dutch and Flemish art, begun in the early 1940s, comprises a small but significant group of works by some of the most accomplished artists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and ranges across genre scenes, still lifes, seascapes, history paintings, and portraits. Highlights include a painting of the Holy Family by Jan Breughel the Elder and Peter Paul Rubens (ca. 1620), a view of Amsterdam harbor by Zeeman (ca. 1643-1664), a pair of oil on copper studies of flowers and insects by Jan van Kessel (1659), and Pieter Lastman’s influential mythological scene Paris and Oenone (1610). Rounding out the collection are prints by the likes of Rembrandt van Rijn, Karel Dujardin, and Hendrick Goltzius among others.
