The National Trust and The Holburne Museum in Bath will be hosting a very special exhibition this May through to September 16th. Go along to see the first ever exhibition to bring together Dutch 17th century paintings from National Trust collections around the country, plus an exhibition focussed on Thomas Gainsborough's theatrical portraits. There will be a plethora of paintings to enjoy, including works by masters of the ‘Golden Age' such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Lely, Gabriel Metsu, Aelbert Cuyp and Cornelis de Heem. The exhibition will explore what made Dutch art so sought-after among country house owners and how Dutch art collecting in British country houses developed over the centuries, as tastes and interests changed. Also don't forget to revisit the museum from the 5th October for ‘Gainsborough and the Theatre', celebrating the painter's close involvement with the theatre world of London and Bath. It will showcase some of his finest portraits of his friends in the theatre, creating a conversation between the leading actors, managers, musicians, playwrights, designers, dancers and critics of the 1760s to 1780s.
