BURNABY, B.C. – The Burnaby Art Gallery is pairing two complementary exhibitions of Dutch art — one consists of landscapes, the other focuses on people — that include works by Rembrandt and other important artists from the 17th to 19th centuries.
“Storms and Bright Skies: Three Centuries of Dutch Landscapes” is a touring show comprising 65 works from the National Gallery of Canada. “Inner Realms: Dutch Portraits” features 17 oils, drawings, prints and watercolours on loan from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
Both will be on display, on separate floors, from Sept. 6 to Nov. 17.
Among the Rembrandts, there is a self-portrait dating from 1638, as well as a portrait of his wife, Saskia, dated 1636, said assistant curator Jennifer Cane.
Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Cornelis Janssens van Ceulen and Adriaen van Ostade are among the other artists represented in the two shows.
The exhibitions mark a milestone for the gallery,
