Experience an extraordinary moment in art history and enjoy masterpieces by many brilliant painters from this unique period.


In the 17th Century, the Dutch Republic had a booming economy, new political and religious independence and a flourishing art market. Seascapes, portraits, landscapes, domestic scenes, urban views and still lifes – all were produced and purchased in vast numbers.

The nature and volume of this body of artwork have often been called a window onto Dutch society, with its depictions of family members, churches, houses, leisure activities and the ever-present views of seas and rivers. This exhibition and our programme of events and activities is a chance to delve into a wide variety of paintings, find out about the artists who produced them, the places they saw, and the times they lived in.

This exhibition was made possible with a grant from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund.
