Charlotte Hoitsma, Tijana Zakula and Sander Karts, three alumni from the researchmaster Art History of the Low Countries, can be seen and heard in the audio- and video tour of the new exhibition In Praise of Painting. Dutch Masterpieces at the Met from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exhibition can be visited from October 2018 till October 2020.
Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century—the Golden Age of Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer—have been a highlight of The Metropolitan collection since the Museum's founding purchase in 1871. This exhibition brings together some of the Museum's greatest paintings to present this remarkable chapter of art history in a new light. Through sixty-seven works of art organized thematically, In Praise of Painting orients visitors to key issues in seventeenth-century Dutch culture—from debates about religion and conspicuous consumption to painters' fascination with the domestic lives of women.
