This exhibition on late 16th- and early 17th-century Dutch and Spanish painting is the result of an extensive and important research project on the part of the Museum arising from a collaborative agreement with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which will be lending a significant group of works.
The exhibition offers a reflection on the pictorial traditions represented by Spain and the Low Countries. While the art-historical literature, particularly that generated in Holland, has considered these traditions as essentially different, this exhibition aims to juxtapose the historical myths and artistic realities of the two countries and to reflect on the numerous traits that they share. In order to appreciate these parallels the exhibition includes major works by artists such as Velázquez, Rembrandt, Ribera, Frans Hals and Vermeer.
Alejandro Vergara, chief curator of Flemish and Northern Schools Painting of the Museo del Prado is the scientific coordinator of this publication. It has texts by Wessel Krul, Barber van de Pol, Teresa Posada Kubissa and Javier Portús, all of them renowned specialists from the Netherlands and Spain, on Dutch and Spanish Golden Age respectively.
