CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

New issue of Open Windows. Online periodical of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza published, with an article on Gerrit Dou

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza has published the 5th issue of its online periodical Open Windows. This issue contains an article on Gerrit Dou by Dolores Delgado. The magazine is freely available on the museum’s website.

When describing his method of perspective in his treatise De Pictura, Leon Battista Alberti compared a painting with an aperta finestra, an open window. Extending this Albertian metaphor beyond the strictly optical, the new on-line periodical of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections aims to open a window onto a different world through each work of art.
