Print Gallery | Admission free – no booking required
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 peaceful wooded landscapes, Dutch Drawings gives an insight into life in the Netherlands centuries ago through exquisitely skilful works on paper.
Curator: Anne Hodge
This exhibition is organised in cooperation with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
In this short clip, curator Anne Hodge tells us about one of the Rijksmuseum's drawings in the exhibition that has an interesting connection to a painting in the Gallery's own permanent collection – An Interior with Ladies and Cavaliers by Dirck van Delen and Dirck Hals.
