AGM 2020 followed by: Prized Possesions, By Jane Choy-Thurlow

Celebrating the enduring British taste for collecting Dutch paintings from the long seventeenth century, this talk will explore why and how this particular type of art was desired, commissioned, and displayed, through the consideration of Golden Age masterpieces from a number of National Trust houses. It will feature portraits, still lifes, religious pictures, maritime paintings, landscapes, genre paintings and history pictures, painted by celebrated artists such as Rembrandt, Lievens, Hobbema, Cuyp, Hondecoeter, De Heem, Ter Borch and Metsu, as well as less well-known artists such as De Baen and Van Diest. With over 350 heritage properties in the UK, the National Trust cares for one of the world’s largest and most significant holdings of art and its collection of Dutch Old Masters is particularly impressive.
