Dutch Paintings at The Met

A new exhibition opens tomorrow at The Metropolitan Museum of Art that I am really looking forward to seeing. The Age of Rembrandt: Dutch Paintings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art showcases 228 Dutch paintings from its collection including 20 by Rembrandt himself. This show will be up through January 6, 2008 and promises to be a popular one with both visitors and New Yorkers. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue (at 81st Street).

The exhibition is organized according to the formation of the Met’s collection or the acquisition of Dutch paintings from 1870 to the present through the generous donations of major American art collectors and titans of industry as well as through acquistions by curators and the leadership of the Met.
