A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Clouds, Ice, and Bounty: The Lee and Juliet Folger Fund Collection of Seventeenth-Century Dutch and Flemish Paintings

National Gallery of Art / Washington, D.C. / Art

The 17th century witnessed the Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish painting. The work was highly detailed yet atmospheric, catching life as one might imagine it while reading a novel, in tones tinted with magic. One thinks of household names like Rubens and Vermeer, but there’s also the intriguing work of artists Jacob van Ruisdael, Clara Peeters, Jan van Goyen, Adam van Breen, and many more. With 27 paintings on view, this exhibition features majestic seascapes, landscapes, and interior scenes—images of Dutch culture during a period of dominance. —E.C.
