Life in the era of Rembrandt

«Life in the era of Rembrandt"- an exhibition presented by the Kolubus Museum of Art in partnership with the Dordrecht Museum (Netherlands). The purpose of this partnership is to glorify the wonderful treasures of both museums, while expanding the prospects and developing a global view of the community.

The Dordrecht Museum is one of the oldest and most important museums of the visual arts in the country. "Life in the era of Rembrandt", covering more than three centuries, includes the art of the 17th century from the Golden Age of Dutch painting and ends with the works of the Hague School of the late 19th century.

Art and science flourished at this time. Most of the works in the exhibition were made in the 17th century or in the period of northern baroque, during which the most famous master of Dutch painting Rembrandt worked. In Dordrecht and elsewhere, 17th century Dutch art was a mirror of daily life in Holland. The so-called "little masters" specialized in certain types of objects, such as portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre scenes or images of everyday life.

The exhibition features works by Rembrandt, Albert Cape, Abraham Streey, Anthony Valdorp, Jacob Cape, Samuel Hoogstraten and others.
