Golden: Dutch and Flemish Masterworks from the Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo Collection

On view February 26, 2011 to June 19, 2011

Located in the: Special Exhibition Galleries

Nearly seventy paintings from the internationally acclaimed collection of Eijk and Rose-Marie van Otterloo illuminate one of the greatest artistic and cultural chapters in history. The Van Otterloo collection is virtually unrivaled for its masterworks by the leading Dutch and Flemish artists of the 1600s: Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Aelbert Cuyp and many others. At PEM, over 20 examples of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish furniture and decorative arts, also from the Van Otterloo collection, are shown in the company of these glorious portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interiors.

Exhibition made possible in part by a generous grant from the Richard C. von Hess Foundation, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Circle of Friends in honor of Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo, and the Netherland-America Foundation in honor of Frederik J. Duparc. Additional support provided by the East India Marine Associates (EIMA) of the Peabody Essex Museum. Supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
