The exhibition Rembrandt-Velázquez is a veritable feast for the eyes. Masterpieces from the period marking the Golden Age, namely the 17th century, of the Netherlands and Spain – two countries rich in culture – are brought face to face. Pairs of paintings by great masters such as Rembrandt and Velázquez, Vermeer and Zurbarán, and Frans Hals and Ribera hang fraternally side by side.Choose your date and time
In the guided tour of this exhibition you learn to see what differentiates and unites them. Velázquez’s portraits of Spanish noblemen hang next to Rembrandt’s likeness of Amsterdam’s Marten and Oopjen. A bundle of asparagus by Adriaen Coorte is paired with a sober white earthenware cup by Zurbarán. And, a suffering saint in a brilliant white habit flanks Asselijn’s agitated swan.
The tour gives you a special viewing experience and insight into 17th-century Spanish and Dutch painting.
