At the PEM: Dutch and Flemish masterworks

The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA is hosting nearly seventy paintings from the internationally acclaimed collection of Eijk and Rose-Marie van Otterloo that illuminate one of the greatest artistic and cultural chapters in history. The Van Otterloo collection is virtually unrivaled for its masterworks by the leading Dutch and Flemish artists of the 1600s: Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Aelbert Cuyp and many others. In additon, over 20 examples of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish furniture and decorative arts, also from the Van Otterloo collection, are shown in the company of these glorious portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interiors.

Reduced admission passes to the Peabody Essex Museum are available to Hampton residents through a generous donation by the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library. Call 926-3368 for details and to reserve a pass.
