This symposium will take place at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (Day 1) and at the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History in The Hague (Day 2). The event has been jointly organised by the RKD, Rijksmuseum and Leiden University.
The year 2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Horst Gerson’s Ausbreitung und Nachwirkung der holländischen Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts. This milestone offers an excellent opportunity to reflect on the international context of Netherlandish art, a major theme in current research programs of the organizing institutions. In ‘Masters of Mobility’ the particular focus is on cultural exchange between the Low Countries and the German lands.
