Fondazione Roma Museo

The exhibition is curated by Bernd Lindemann and investigates the development of genre painting in the Netherland in the 17th century, driven by the new social and civil values of the era. An exquisite collection of Flemish and Dutch masterpieces from the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin will be presented in Italy, many for the first time. These include Rembrandt’s Money changer and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. The 55 works on display will offer visitors the opportunity to learn about the art and culture of Flanders and Holland during their Golden Age. The narrative highlights how Dutch achievements in art are tied to the significant cultural, political, economic and religious changes of the Netherlands in the 17th century.
