17th Century Portrait Gallery

Exhibition "17th Century Portrait Gallery"presents to the audience thirty huge group portraits of the 17th century from the collections of museums in Amsterdam.

The paintings depict regents, police officers and merchants from various social and religious circles. They are all united by worldly success - some of them were among the most influential and prosperous citizens of the 17th century Netherlands. And all of them, at least, were rich enough to be immortalized together with their fellow members of the guild and trustees some of the best artists of their age.
