The Met's collection has been a home for paintings of the Dutch Golden Age from the very beginning. In Praise of Painting brings together 67 thematically organized works by masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Hals.

Focusing on the hot topics of 17th-century Dutch culture – religion, wealth and class, morality and mortality – the exhibition displays some of the greatest 17th-century Dutch paintings side by side.

Discover the meaning behind some of The Met's masterpieces as you pore over the fine details; wilted flowers, rotting fruit, and more skulls than a biker gang's leather collection. There's more to the Netherlands than cheese, but of course it gets a few mentions too!
