Dutch Landscapes Exhibition (15 April - 9 October 2011)

The exhibition brought together forty two remarkable landscapes from the ‘Golden Age’ of Dutch painting, including works by Ruisdael, Cuyp and Hobbema. The Dutch Republic, which gained independence from the Spanish-ruled Southern Netherlands in 1648, was physically expanding with large areas being reclaimed from the sea, and with it, the population was growing too. Landscape paintings seem to celebrate this expansion and prosperity.


  • Original drawings highlighting artists’ techniques and approach to composition.
  • The changing environment and landscape of Dutch people’s lives in the seventeenth century.
  • Insight into the life of European people of the period, including how they travelled, farmed and the hobbies they enjoyed.

The Dutch Landscapes exhibition is supported by the exhibition website which contains three learning interactives to enable pupils to discover artistic processes such as composition and perspective.
