Immerse yourself in outstanding works of art by the greatest Dutch painters of the 17th century, including Rembrandt and Vermeer, at the Art Gallery of NSW from 11 November 2017 to 18 February, 2018.

During the Dutch golden age, the art of painting flourished like never before. Artists sensitively observed the beauty of the visible world, transforming it, with great skill, into vivid and compelling paintings. Their subjects ranged from intense portraits and dramatic seascapes to tranquil scenes of domestic life and careful studies of fruit and flowers.
