Abstract:
The new exhibit Small Treasures: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals and Their Contemporaries will be on display in the Meymandi Exhibition Gallery through January. This exhibition is the first ever to focus on small portraits by Dutch and Flemish painters from the seventeenth century. During the seventeenth century, portrait painting was not highly regarded, but the group of artists exhibited elevated the status of portraiture with their skill. The exhibition is previewed by describing the history of the period, describing portraits painted by Vermeer and Rembrandt , and describing the impact of masterpieces.
