Dutch Painters at the Prado

In conjunction with the publication of the full catalogue of Dutch paintings from the Prado Museum inventory, the exhibition “Dutch Painters at the Prado” brings to the public a selection of one of the lesser known parts of the museum’s collection, not only to the general audience but also to the specialists. The retrospective helps us to understand the political context of the 17th century but also the ever-changing pictorial trends and tastes of the period. Furthermore, the exhibition is also a unique opportunity to appreciate the only Rembrandt in the museum collection, “Judith at the Banquet of Holofernes” of 1634 and rarities such as a magnificent still life by Gabriël Metsu, “Dead Cock” of ca. 1659-1660.
