Baroque Meets Modern

This exhibition is a reconfiguration of the Iziko Michaelis Collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings. The Old Town House has been re-hung to resemble the way in which pictures were hung in Dutch homes in the 1600's. Modern abstractions have also been inserted into this re-hang, reminding us that the mercantile and democratic Dutch of the 17th century were among the first active dealers and collectors who established the broader precedent of the art collector and the art market as we know it today.
