About

A drawing of a farmstead.

Join curator Joachim Homann for an in-depth tour of Crossroads: Drawing the Dutch Landscape, on view through August 14, 2022.

Between the late 16th and early 18th centuries, artists working in the Dutch Republic produced an extraordinary number of landscape drawings, many depicting sites that were either recognizable as or evocative of the country’s cities, villages, and countryside. This profusion of local imagery coincided with the young country’s quest for global dominion, as well as with war and dramatic ecological change taking place at home. With 90 works selected almost entirely from the holdings of the Harvard Art Museums and the Maida and George Abrams Collection, including highlights by Rembrandt, Ruisdael, and Bruegel, Crossroads demonstrates how Dutch artists navigated intersections between artistic traditions and environmental realities through their drawings.
