During the Dutch Golden Age the art of painting flourished like never before. Artists sensitively observed the beauty of the visible world and transformed it into vivid and compelling paintings. Drawn from the renowned Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, this exhibition features a rare painting by Johannes Vermeer and showcases the remarkable work of Rembrandt van Rijn, one of the greatest minds in the history of art.
