June Object of the Month: Landscape with Travelers on a Path near a Waterfall

Free for Members
Included with General Admission
 
In the 16th and 17th centuries, many young Dutch painters traveled to Italy to study the popular styles of painting—leading to the formation of two large schools of painting style, the Caravaggisti and the Dutch Italianates. Jan Both’s Landscape with Travelers on a Path near a Waterfall invites us into the world of the Dutch Italianates. Join Senior Docent Cathie Rubins for a conversation about what drew these artists to the Italian countryside and the reasoning behind why there might have been such a large market for these paintings back home in the Netherlands.
 
Please join us each month for a gallery talk led by a Museum Docent and learn more about an object from the collection or on view in a special exhibition.
