New Display of the Collections
From 10 June to 15 September 2013
The exhibition is devoted to Pieter Saenredam (1597-1665), one of the most notable painters of the 17th century, who devoted much of his oeuvre to the depiction of buildings, seen from both inside and outside. Saenredam was also a pioneer in his investigation of perspective and in his use of preparatory sketches and measurements taken in situ, which provided the starting-point for his paintings. These practices distinguish him from his predecessors and from other contemporary artists. This exhibition will offer a surey of his work and will include his finest and most exquisitely painted compositions created over the course of his career.
