Re-Forming the Image in the Dutch Golden Age
The works on display include paintings, prints, sculpture and historical artifacts from 16th-Ė18th century Netherlands, Germany, England, France and colonial New York. They show how art pictured new attitudes about man and the natural world and reflected a rise in democracy and the middle classes. Among a host of public programs are two very special free events: a private tour of the Metropolitan Museumís Dutch art collection and a lecture on Dutch Art collectors in New York City. A fee-based tour of Dutch historic homes in Queens, including Flushingís Bowne House, built circa 1661, will also be offered.
Friends and family of the students will be invited to view their work at an opening reception on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, from 6-8 pm. The public and media are welcome to attend.
In addition to the private tours, a full series of free, open-to-the-public programs will accompany the exhibition, including lectures, films and a childrenís workshop.
