Storms and Bright Skies: Three Centuries of Dutch Landscapes

13 Feb 2014 - 05 Apr 2014

McIntosh Gallery, London, ON

Both harbinger of danger and symbol of pride, the Dutch landscape and its typical motifs, such as the canals that criss-cross the country and the windmill, have been a source of infinite inspiration for the Dutch artists who have captured their essence and character over the centuries. With over sixty works on paper from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada,Storms and Bright Skies: Three Centuries of Dutch Landscapes explores the emergence ofthe Dutch landscape tradition in the early17th century, its blossomingduring the Golden Age, and itsextension into the 18th and19th centuries. Some of the greatestDutch artists, such as Jan vanGoyen, Jacob van Ruisdael andRembrandt – represented in theexhibition with four of his famousetchings – brilliantly contributedto the rise of landscape as a full-blown pictorial genre. These developments were to influence the course of art history in the Netherlands.
