Northern Baroque Splendor. The HOHENBUCHAU COLLECTION from: LIECHTENSTEIN. The Princely Collections, Vienna

September 20, 2014 - April 12, 2015

The Hohenbuchau Collection is one of the largest and most varied collections of Northern Baroque art assembled in recent years and is now on long-term loan to LIECHTENSTEIN, the Princely Collections, Vienna.  The selective showing at the Bruce Museum is the inaugural venue in the U.S. before it travels to Cincinnati.

Primarily comprised of Dutch and Flemish seventeenth-century paintings, it exhibits all the naturalism, visual probity and technical brilliance for which those schools are famous.  While many modern collections of Old Masters specialize in a single style or subject matter, the Hohenbuchau Collection is admirable for offering examples of virtually all the genres produced by Lowland artists; the collection is distinguished for the many quality individual paintings executed by more than one artist, working in collaboration.
