The Morgan Library: Rembrandt’s World: Dutch Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

The Morgan Library and Museum:
Rembrandt’s World: Dutch Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

January 20 through April 29, 201

Bolstered by a new political independence, economic prosperity, and maritime supremacy, the Dutch Republic in the seventeenth century witnessed a rich artistic flourishing. This exhibition features over 90 drawings by many of the preeminent artists of Holland’s Golden Age—among them Rembrandt van Rijn and his followers Ferdinand Bol and Gerbrand van den Eeckhout; Abraham Bloemaert; Aelbert Cuyp; and Jan van Goyen—who were active primarily in their native land (in contrast to their many compatriots who traveled to Italy and elsewhere) and who brought their extraordinary talents to bear on such quintessentially Dutch subjects as landscapes, marine views, pastoral and genre scenes, nature studies, and portraiture. The works, assembled over the last two decades, are from the private collection of Clement C. Moore and are exhibited together publicly for the first time.

The following works are from the collection and are on display in The Morgan’s exhibition:

Cornelis Dusart, 1660-1704. Shrovetide Revelers Entering a Courtyard
1690 Watercolor and gouache, pen and black ink, over black and red chalk, on vellum
