<exchanging gazes> 7: The Rhythm of the Earth. 17th century Dutch and 19th century American Landscape Painting

From 24 September 2013 to 06 January 2014



As early as 1980 the art historian Barbara Novak suggested the influence of Dutch Golden Age landscape painting on 19thcentury American painting. Both schools, with their different artistic styles and languages, chose landscape as their fundamental pictorial genre, the former transforming it into an independent subject and the latter into a means for expressing profound emotions. This new installation in the <exchanging gazes> series will present a selection of ten works from the Museum’s exceptional collections, which will allow for a comparison of different interpretations of the landscape by Dutch artists such as Philips Koninck, Jan Josephsz. van Goyen and Jan Jansz. van der Heyden, and American painters including William Louis Sonntag, George Henry Durrie and Albert Bierstadt, among others.
