In the atmospheric Print Gallery, this exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view in Ireland works by seventeenth-century Dutch artists from the collection of the world-famous Rijksmuseum. Drawings and prints by artists including Rembrandt, Hendrik Avercamp, Jan van Goyen and Jacob van Ruisdael take centre stage. From a child’s first steps to a sea battle, and from a young girl reading to peaceful wooded landscapes, Dutch Drawings gives an insight into life in the Netherlands centuries ago through exquisitely skilful works on paper.
