How to get here. Opening times

The State Tretyakov Gallery presents:

The works of Rembrandt, Hals and other Dutch artists whose works hang in Russian museums are very well known in Russia. Curators of this project will now display works from the Netherlands from the first half of the 19th Century, which have previously only been known to a small circle of art specialists, to the Moscow public. The ‘great’ and ‘small’ artists of traditional Dutch art continued to work in fine arts in the country in the new historical period: the era of Romanticism.

The exhibition will feature masterful portraits by Cornelius Kruzeman; still lifes of flowers by Johannes van Osa and forest landscapes by Barend Cornelius Koekkoek. The works are profoundly characteristic of Dutch painting – particularly in their attention to detail. Masterpieces from the private collection of Rademakers and from one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands — the Teylers Museum in Harlem — which (like the Tretyakov Gallery) has works which come from the private collection of a local merchant. These will be displayed in Moscow for the first time.

The Dutch paintings will be shown in conjunction with those of the best Russian artist of this period – Tropinin, Kiprensky, Shchedrin, Vorobev and also earlier works by Ivan Aivazovsky.

52 works will be shown in all at the exhibition.
