    Masters of the Everyday: Dutch Artists in the Age of Vermeer

    November 13, 2015 - February 14, 2016

    The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace - London SW1A 1AA, United Kingdom

    The Dutch artists of the 17th century painted ordinary people doing everyday things. They offer us a glimpse into the rumbustious life of village taverns and peasant cottages, and the quiet domesticity of courtyards and parlours.

    While the subject matter may be ordinary - the preparation of food, eating and drinking, the enjoyment of music or a family game - the painting is rich and jewel-like, with equal attention paid to a discarded clay pipe as to a fine silk drape. The meticulously documented details often allude to a work's deeper meaning or to moral messages that would have been familiar to the contemporary viewer.

    Presenting 27 masterpieces from the Royal Collection, the exhibition includes works by Gerrit Dou, Gabriel Metsu, Jan Steen and Pieter de Hooch, and Johannes Vermeer's A Lady at the Virginal with a Gentleman, 'The Music Lesson'.


    November 24, 2015 - March 27, 2016

    Museo del Prado - Calle Ruiz de Alarcon 23. Madrid 28014, Spain

    The work of Ingres undoubtedly constitutes an important forerunner of the late 19th- and early 20th-century artistic revolutions.

    The exhibition to be shown at the Museo del Prado in 2015, which has benefited from the special collaboration of the Musée du Louvre, offers a precise chronological presentation of Ingres' work but will also pay particular attention to his complex relationship with portraiture (characterized by his simultaneous rejection and admiration for it), which will be juxtaposed with his ongoing aim of being primarily recognized as a history painter.

    Sublime Beauty: Raphael's "Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn"

    January 9 - April 10, 2016

    The Legion of Honor - 100 34th Ave in San Francisco, CA

    The Legion of Honor will be exhibiting one of Raphael's most beguiling and enigmatic paintings – "Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn". The masterpiece, presented in the United States for the first time, will be lent by the Galleria Borghese in Rome.

    The exhibition will explore the possible identity of this subject, as well as the painting's distinct iconography, including the unicorn she holds in her lap. Visitors will be able to explore Raphael's painting in detail and get a glimpse into its intriguing history.

    Vigée Le Brun - Woman Artist in Revolutionary France

    February 15 - May 15, 2016

    Metropolitan Museum of Art - 1000 Fifth Avenue (at 82nd Street) New York, NY

    Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (French, 1755–1842) is one of the finest eighteenth-century French painters and among the most important of all women artists. She achieved success in France and Europe during one of the most eventful, turbulent periods in European history. This will be the first retrospective and only the second exhibition devoted to Vigée Le Brun in modern times. The eighty works on view will be paintings and a few pastels from European and American public and private collections.

    Heronimus Bosch – Visions of genius

    February 13, 2016 - May 8, 2016

    Het Noordbrabants Museum - Verwersstraat 41, 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands

    Hieronymus Bosch is viewed worldwide as the most intriguing and exciting Netherlandish artist of the late Middle Ages. The exhibition includes the lion's share of his surviving paintings and drawings, and is based on the most comprehensive research ever performed into the artist's oeuvre: the Bosch Research and Conservation Project (BRCP). Never before have so many of Bosch's works returned to his home town of 's-Hertogenbosch, where he created them over 500 years ago.

    Many paintings have been restored following the study of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project. 12 panels will be on view to the public for the first time at this exhibition. Their presentation will lend a new and surprising picture of the updated oeuvre of Hieronymus Bosch.

    Dozens of loaned works will come from prestigious museums all over the world. The exceptionally large number of works loaned to the exhibition will offer visitors a unique opportunity to study close up the revolutionary and highly imaginative visual language of Hieronymus Bosch.

    May 10, 2016 - September 11, 2016

    Musee D'Orsay - 1 Rue de la Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris, France

    France has never devoted a solo exhibition to Charles Gleyre. He was a major figure in academy painting in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century. Fresh interpretations of his work, including first and foremost the psychoanalytical analysis published by Michel Thevoz in 1980, have uncovered the fascinating contradictions of both the artist and his work.

    Vermeer Suite: Music in 17th-Century Dutch Painting

    January 17 - August 21, 2016

    Dallas Museum of Art - 1717 North Harwood, Dallas, Texas 75201

    The great 17th-century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer created fewer than forty paintings during his lifetime, and Young Woman Seated at a Virginal from 1670–72 is one of his last. On loan from the private Leiden Collection, it is typical of the acclaimed artist's style in its depiction of a solitary woman seated at the keyboard instrument with light illuminating the scene from a window not seen on the canvas. This masterpiece is the inspiration for the DMA exhibition Vermeer Suite: Music in 17th-Century Dutch Painting, which includes seven additional loans from the Leiden Collection of works by Vermeer's contemporaries—artists Jan Steen, Gerard ter Borch, Jacob Adriaensz Ochtervelt, Eglon van der Neer, Gerard Dou, and Frans van Mieris—whose paintings also portray musicians performing period instruments such as the lute, violin, and violincello.

    Auction Pre-Sales

    Viewing public auction presales is one of the best ways to see important works from a given period that are in private collections and are otherwise not on public view.
