24th June - 2nd October 2005
The most comprehensive display of 17th century Dutch masterpieces has come to Melbourne for the second exhibition in the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series.
Following the success of The Impressionists in 2004, Dutch Masters from the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam will offer audiences the richest survey of 17th century Dutch art ever staged in Australia. The exhibition brings together more than 100 sumptuous works and decorative objects by great artists such as Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Pieter de Hooch and Jan Steen.A rare treat for Australian audiences, this exhibition is only possible due to the major renovations happening at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
