Rubens to Ruisdael: The Hohenbuchau Collection from Lichtenstein. The Princely Collections, Vienna

June 27, 2015 to September 20, 2015

The Hohenbuchau Collection is one of the largest collections of Northern Baroque art assembled in recent decades, and it is now on long-term loan to the Prince of Liechtenstein’s Museum in Vienna. This exhibition offers examples of Dutch and Flemish seventeenth-century paintings in virtually all genres—history painting, portraiture, genre, landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and flower pieces, animal paintings, and hunting scenes. It includes examples by the most famous artists of the period, including Utrecht Caravaggisti (Gerard van Honthorst and Hendrick ter Brugghen), the Leiden fijnschilders (Gerard Dou, Frans and Willem van Mieris), landscape artists (Salomon van Ruysdael, Jacob van Ruisdael), and the great masters Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens. With over sixty paintings that display virtuoso composition and technical brilliance, the exhibition is a celebration of the Golden Age in the history of art.
