Exhibition The Netherlandish Renaissance - Drawings from the Budapest Museum
from October 9, 2008 to January 12, 2009
The 16th century was a period of great upheaval in the Netherlands that also affected art. Various artistic trends – Romanism, Mannerism, emergent Realism – intermingled with one another.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest, has a remarkable collection of works by Netherlandish artists, who were such brilliant exponents of historical and landscape drawings. The Louvre presents a selection of over 70 sheets from this collection that is little known outside Hungary.
Organized by: Terez Gèrszi et Carel Van Tuyll.
Sully Wing, 2nd floor.
