CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Zamek Królewski w Warszawie

Royal Castle in Warsaw – Museum


Following the castle’s reconstruction from the debris of World War II, the collection of the Royal Castle in Warsaw – Museum came into being in 1971. It comprises artworks from the former royal collection, gifts and acquisitions, including 60 Dutch and Flemish paintings. Among them are two paintings by Rembrandt that stand out: The Girl in a Picture Frame (1641) and The Scholar at the Lectern (1641). Additional paintings in the collection are by artists such as Ludolf Bakhuizen (1630-1708), Adriaen van Ostade (1610-1685), Jacob van Ruisdael (1628-1682) and Philips Wouwerman (1619-1668).

Moreover, the collection contains about 30 ceramic objects from Delft, ten drawings and 90 prints (published in the Netherlands), as well as metal objects, textiles and sculptures. The Ciechanowiecki Foundation and the Sahakian Foundation, which cooperate with the Royal Castle, also have some Netherlandish objects (ceramics, furniture, medals, metals and sculptures) in their collection.
