This event has ended.

Bolstered by a new political independence, economic prosperity, and maritime supremacy, the Dutch Republic in the seventeenth century witnessed a rich artistic flourishing. This exhibition features over 90 drawings by many of the preeminent artists of Holland's Golden Age—among them Rembrandt van Rijn and his followers Ferdinand Bol and Gerbrand van den Eeckhout; Abraham Bloemaert; Aelbert Cuyp; and Jan van Goyen—who were active primarily in their native land (in contrast to their many compatriots who traveled to Italy and elsewhere) and who brought their extraordinary talents to bear on such quintessentially Dutch subjects as landscapes, marine views, pastoral and genre scenes, nature studies, and portraiture. The works, assembled over the last two decades, are from the private collection of Clement C. Moore and are exhibited together publicly for the first time.
