The Golden Age of Netherland. From Rembrandt to Vermeer
Pinacotheque de Paris

From 07 October 2009 to 07 February 2010.

For its third season, the Pinacotheque de Paris makes an association with with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to present one of the most interesting periods of art history : the seventeenth century in Holland. The exhibition offer an exceptional collection of over 130 pieces including sixty paintings, thirty works on paper (drawings and watercolors),  prints and a dozen objects to illustrate that period (tapestries, ceramics, wood miniatures, silverware and glassware).  One generation of précious talents, never seen before in the history of art was born, which we will find again only in Paris in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.  Artists acquired a specialty in a very precise still life or vanity with Willem Claesz Heda and Pieter Claesz, the landscape with Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruysdael or Meindert Hobbema. Jan Steen and Adriaen van Ostade illustrate the ironic life of the small villages while Gerard ter Borch and Pieter de Hooch engaged in the comedy of manners which include the village festivals. Emanuel de Witte and Pieter Jansz Saenredam are specialized in painting monuments, Thomas de Keyser and Frans Hals became specialists of the portrait, Paulus Potter specialist of the animals. Vermeer and Rembrandt are finally not very representative of that time. They are, however, become symbols. Unlike other artists, they were interested in several genres and refused any specialization. They remained in both models absolute, timeless and full time for four centuries regarded as the major painters of art history. This exhibition highlight the special role of Rembrandt. The most influential artist of the time. Rembrandt had a reputation that he bestowed a very special status and was the model for this period by its tolerance, its modernity, its poetic realism and emotional power led mainly by its use of light. Master of chiaroscuro, Rembrandt brought to his models, simple portraits or religious scenes, a dimension, density, human beauty unsurpassed, making him the precursor of modernity, an analyst of the soul and conscience, with three centuries ahead of his contemporaries.
