The Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish Painting from the Städel Museum
The Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish Painting from the Städel MuseumOctober 7, 2010–January 23, 2011
This fall the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao hosts an exhibition of works from the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, featuring iconic paintings by leading masters and offering an interesting reflection on how this period developed and redefined traditional pictorial genres such as landscape, still-life, portrait, and historical painting. These works were often created for Holland’s successful, Protestant, middle-class merchant elite and offer a thorough examination of the tastes and concerns of Dutch culture and society. Jan Vermeer’s The Geographer (1668–69) is a highlight of the exhibition, which also boasts works by Rembrandt van Rijn and Peter Paul Rubens.
