An enchanting exhibition of works from the Golden Age of Dutch painting, revealing the radical sensibilities of these revolutionary artists.

Thanks to George IV’s passion for the Dutch Baroque, the Queen has a very fine collection of master paintings from 17th-century Netherlands including works by Rembrandt, Rubens and Ruisdael.

This exhibition celebrates this Golden era in painting, and features old favourites – like Rembrandt’s An Old Woman often thought to be the artist’s mother – together with less well known works by the likes of Gerrit Dou and the beautifully restrained still lifes of Willem C Heda. In its entirety the show reveals an era of great radical experimentation in Northern European art.
