The first ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion of Dutch masters in Syd­ney, “Rem­brandt and the Dutch Golden Age: Master­pieces from the Ri­jksmu­seum”, com­prises 78 ex­cep­tional works of art from the renowned Ri­jksmu­seum in Am­s­ter­dam. The ex­hi­bi­tion presents a richly un­fold­ing panorama of Dutch art and life dur­ing the 17th cen­tury—an era of un­par­al­leled wealth, power and cul­tural con­fi­dence. Along­side master­pieces by Rem­brandt and Ver­meer are out­stand­ing paint­ings by Ja­cob van Ruis­dael, re­garded as the great­est land­scapist of the Golden Age, and Jan Davidsz de Heem, renowned for his dy­namic, colour­ful com­po­si­tions of flow­ers.
