News: The Golden Age of Dutch Painting in Bilbao

Jan_Vermeer_-_The_Geographer.JPGFrom October 8th through February 13th, The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao will be host to The Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish Painting from the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. Founded in 1816, the Städel Museum is home to one of Europe’s most important collections of 17th-century art, with a particular emphasis on Dutch and Flemish painting. This genre constituted the cornerstone of the collection amassed by Johann Friedrich Städel (1728-1816), which was used to found the museum that now bears his name.
Among the names included in the exhibition are Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Frans Hals and Jan Vermeer van Delft, whose painting The Geographer painting is known the world over. The show offers an interesting reflection on how this period-a time of extraordinary historical and artistic interest-promoted the development of new pictorial genres and the redefinition of other traditional ones such as landscapes, portraits, still lifes, or historical paintings. Tickets to the special exhibition are EUR8 (GBP6.58) and students EUR5.
