A History of Dutch Painting in Six Pictures (2015)
John Walsh, B.A. 1961, Director Emeritus of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and a specialist in Dutch paintings, offered a series of six lectures that explored the art of the Dutch Republic during its extraordinary flowering in the 17th century. By focusing on a single work each week and examining its artistic, intellectual, and political contexts, the audience became familiar with six great paintings and the artists who made them. Three of the works are on view at the Gallery and the others are in Dutch museums. Walsh examined the artists’ intentions, the role of competition in the art market, and the development of styles. The lecture series was free and open to the public, and it coincided with the loan of thirty important Dutch and Flemish paintings to the Gallery from the collection of Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo.

This arrangement of almost life-size nudes—an unusual subject for a Dutch painting—is by a master who lived long into the 17th century and was famous for his virtuosity and skill as a teacher. The painting in the Gallery’s collection, a spectacular ballet of fear and impending doom, exemplifies the ideals of the first generation of great Dutch artists.
