Enter through the DeWitt Entrance for the lecture by Dr. Peter C. Sutton
Join us in celebrating the opening of Northern Baroque Splendor starting with a lecture at 6 p.m. by Dr. Peter C. Sutton, curator of the exhibition, followed by an exclusive party for Museum members. The HOHENBUCHAU COLLECTION is one of the largest and most varied collections of Northern Baroque art assembled anywhere in recent decades. Primarily comprised of Dutch and Flemish seventeenth-century paintings, it exhibits all the naturalism and technical brilliance associated with this Golden Age of European painting. The exhibition includes 64 paintings and offers examples in virtually all the genres produced by the Lowland artists—history painting, portraiture, genre, landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and flower pieces, animal paintings, and hunting scenes. Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob Jordaens and many other celebrated masters of the period are featured in this stunning exhibition.
The evening will begin with a lecture by Dr. Peter C. Sutton, the Susan E. Lynch Executive Director at the Bruce Museum. Light hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served.
Free for Art Museum Members, $10 for non member guests. Reservations not required.
