This is a rare opportunity for Sydney audiences to experience outstanding works of art by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Ruisdael, Hals, Steen, Dou, Lievens and Leyster – each masters of their respective genres – drawn from the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, the great national collection of the Netherlands.

Rembrandt and the Dutch golden age presents a richly unfolding panorama of Dutch society in an era of unparalleled wealth, maritime power and cultural confidence. Vivid and compelling, the paintings encompass the tranquil Dutch landscape, the colourful life of the cities, Dutch society and morality, ships on the high seas and the characterful people who made the Dutch Republic such a success.

Part of 2017-18 Sydney International Art Series, bringing the world’s most outstanding exhibitions to Australia, exclusively to Sydney, every summer.
