Cleveland Museum of Art Acquires Seventeen Dutch Drawings from the Golden Age
Thursday, 25 April 2019
The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) purchased seventeen Dutch drawings. The acquisition greatly enhances the CMA’s collection of Netherlandish works on paper and allows the museum more fully to represent the variety of subject matter and styles during this prosperous period in Dutch history.
The group of drawings, dating from 1600 to 1710, includes natural history scenes, portraiture, genre subjects, figure studies and historical and biblical subjects made in both urban and courtly contexts.
The works will be featured in a spring 2021 exhibition with an accompanying catalogue highlighting new research on these drawings.
