Earlier this month, the National Museum of Warsaw has published images and updated entries of all the Dutch and Flemish paintings in its collection. The online catalogue, edited by Aleksandra Janiszewska, offers high quality pictures of more than 900 paintings that originated in the Low Countries between 1494 and 1983. The online catalogue is available on the website of the museum (in Polish).
Catalogue of Netherlandish, Dutch, Flemish and Belgian Paintings
The project coincides with last year’s publication of Early Netherlandish, Dutch, Flemish and Belgian Paintings 1494–1983 in the Collections of the National Museum in Warsaw and the Palace at Nieborów. This catalogue is the result of years of efforts of curators from the former Department of Foreign Painting: Hanna Benesz and Maria Kluk. The two-volume catalogue includes major works and less important works and copies for the aim of full documentation.
CODART TWINTIG Warsaw
From 21 to 23 May 2017, the CODART congress will take place in Warsaw. Together with the National Museum in Warsaw we have devised a program that focuses on discussions of this year’s congress theme, Deep Storage or Open Depot: Access to the ‘Hidden’ Collections, as well as providing participants with the opportunity to get to know Poland’s collections of Dutch and Flemish art. In addition, the National Museum in Warsaw is organizing an exhibition of the Dutch and Flemish drawings in their collection especially for the occasion.
