About

This exhibition tells the story of one of the most remarkable artistic enterprises of the 17th century: David Teniers' publication in 1660 of the Theatrum Pictorium or 'Theatre of Painting', the first illustrated printed catalogue of a major paintings collection. With loans from the Museo del Prado, the Royal Collection, the National Gallery of Ireland, Glasgow Museums and the British Library, the exhibition will give an in-depth account of this influential project which provided the foundations for the modern catalogue and documented one of the greatest princely collections ever assembled.
