Class Distinctions Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer

Published December 14, 2015

Organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this groundbreaking exhibition proposes a new approach to understanding 17th-century Dutch painting. Through 75 carefully selected, beautifully preserved portraits, genre scenes, landscapes and seascapes borrowed from European and American public and private collections—including masterpieces never before seen in the United States—the show reflects, for the first time, the ways in which paintings represent the various socioeconomic groups of the new Dutch Republic, from the Princes of Orange to the most indigent.
The museum is located on the Avenue of the Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02115 and runs from October 11, 2015 - January 18, 2016.
