Visit of the exhibition: Crossroads: drawing the Dutch landscape
Join curator Susan Anderson for an in-depth tour of Crossroads: Drawing the Dutch landscapeon view from May 21 to August 14, 2022.
Between the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 18th century, artists working in the Dutch Republic produced an extraordinary number of landscape drawings, many of which depict recognizable or evocative sites in the country’s towns, villages and countryside. This profusion of local imagery coincided with the fledgling country’s quest for global dominance, as well as war and the dramatic ecological changes taking place at home. With 90 works selected almost entirely from the collections of the Harvard Art Museums and the Maida and George Abrams Collection, including seminal works by Rembrandt, Ruisdael and Bruegel, Crossroads shows how Dutch artists navigated between artistic traditions and environmental realities through their drawings.
