Journey to the Dutch Golden Age and (re)discover artist such as Frans Hals, Rembrandt Van Rijn, Nicolaes Maes, Abraham Bloemaert, Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael and Pieter de Hooch. The renovated wing “Dutch Galleries” welcomes portraits, landscape, genre scenes and still lifes; and offers an extensive panorama of this fascinated artistic period.

During 17th century, the Northern Netherlands entered an era of unprecedented economic prosperity. This Golden Age saw cities such as Amsterdam, Utrecht, Haarlem and Leiden transform into true hubs of artistic innovation.

The RMFAB’s collection of Dutch art from this period is one of the largest and most beautiful, preserved outside the Netherlands. After a long-awaited renovation of the Dutch galleries, about a hundred masterpieces finally get a well-deserved permanent spot in the Old Masters Museum.
