The Golden Age of Dutch Prints

Dec. 24, 2005–March 26, 2006

This grouping of exquisite prints includes recent additions to UMMA's strong holdings in Dutch seventeenth-century collection. In an age of exploration and discovery, master printmakers such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Cornelis Dusart, Hendrik Goudt, Adriaen van Ostade, and Jan van de Velde II took a variety of approaches to representing the world around them and the stories informing their cultures. The astonishing variety of their subjects—landscapes, animals, genre scenes, still-lifes, portraits, mythological and religious narratives—attests to the wide curiosity of these artists, their fascination with their surroundings as well as faraway places, and their sense of cultural identity.
