CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Museum Wasserburg Anholt

Information

The historically grown Pinakothek contains more than 750 exhibits, of which about 260 are paintings by Dutch and Flemish artists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The spectrum ranges from history painting with religious, secular and mythological themes to portraits, genre painting, landscape paintings and still lifes. The diversity of genres is reflected in the masters: Rembrandt van Rijn, Gerard van Honthorst, Gerard ter Borch, David Teniers, Frans Snijders, Joachim Patinir, Ambrosius Brueghel, Jan van Goyen and Joos van Cleve. Also on display are works by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Carlo Dolci and the Master of the Female Half-Lengths. Worth mentioning are tapestries designed by the Antwerp artist Lodewijk van Schoor (1666-1702) and wall hangings from the studio of Pieter van der Borcht (Brussels, eighteenth century) with works by David Teniers. The diversity of the art collections has developed over centuries up to the present day. The collections are presented at Wasserburg Anholt, a moated castle, which has been continuously inhabited by the family since the seventeenth century.
