The Dutch Golden Age

As the Dutch Republic came of age in the 17th century, its northern provinces led the way in a new style of painting that revolutionised Western art and continues to fascinate art lovers to this day. Join expert lecturer Clare Ford-Wille on this tour which visits a host of superb galleries and museums including the renovated Rijksmuseum, housing one of the world’s greatest art collections and the exquisite Mauritshuis, which has doubled in size after its recent refurbishment. Lauded by the critics at the reopening last year, it retains its intimate atmosphere along with an outstanding collection of paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Dyck and Rubens, among them Vermeer's 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' which is back in its rightful home after a worldwide tour.
