  • See paintings by Dutch and Spanish masters of the 17th century, including Rembrandt, Velázquez, and Vermeer
  • Take a rare chance to study them side by side, and see the surprising similarities between Spanish and Dutch styles
  • Enjoy this limited-time collaboration with the Prado Museum in Madrid, before or after exploring the rest of the Rijksmuseum

Celebrating the Year of Rembrandt and the 200th anniversary of Museo Nacional del Prado, this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition displays some of the greatest artworks by the Dutch and Spanish Golden Age masters of the 17th century, including Rembrandt, Velázquez, Murillo, Hals, Zurbarán, and Vermeer.

Works by renowned artists, one Dutch and one Spanish, are paired up to compare and contrast the pieces. This juxtaposition creates stimulating and often surprising dialogues between the two artworks – through their differences and commonalities.

Each pair is artfully arranged to tell a story. Whether it's a shared theme (wealth, religion, power), specific motifs, or their use of light and composition, looking at these works displayed right next to one another makes it impossible not to draw some parallels.

Are there striking similarities between the two styles? Is it only conceptually, or do you physically see recurring patterns, objects, or techniques? You're invited to come to your own conclusion, but no matter what, you're guaranteed to appreciate the beauty of these rare and unique works of art.

Excellent idea to match up two painters. Conclusion: Rembrand is the winner. With this comparison, he is WAY AHEAD of ALL other painters of this era. MORE THAN I EVER THOUGHT AND KNEW!!!
