About the Event
Monday 12/9/22: Jacob van Ruisdael (c. 1629–82)
Born out of the first generation of this relatively new genre, the Dutchman Ruisdael created archetypes of the splendour and grandeur of nature, making him one of the first great masters of landscape art. His poetic representations of local and exotic lands create story boards and inspiration to many landscape artists who followed him.
This one hour talk will introduce landscape art as a genre in the Netherlands and the importance and role of Ruisdael in establishing it as one of the most recognisable and best loved types of painting in museums world wide.
