Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting

Spring 2017  Hall Napoléon

The Musée du Louvre, the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin and the National Gallery of Art in Washington are co-organizing the first exhibition of its kind to explore the network of relationships between the Dutch genre painters during the 1650–1675 period.

This carefully developed exhibition entitled "Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting" will give visitors and art experts a better understanding of how Johannes Vermeer and contemporary painters of scenes from everyday life admired one another, mutually inspired one another, and competed with one another.
