Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion

Three fragments of the Portrait of the Van Campen family by master-painter Frans Hals (1582– 1666) are reunited for the first time in over 200 years, after the painting was separated at the beginning of the 19th century. The masterpiece is joined by the other three family portraits that Frans Hals painted during his lifetime, showing the brilliancy with which the artist set new standards for Western art. [more info]
