17th Century Dutch and Flemish Masterworks and Contemporary Reflections

June 15 to September 15, 2013

Painting in the Netherlands and Flanders enjoyed an exceptional variety and richness in the seventeenth century. A robust economy, international trade and a prosperous middle class supported a busy art market, including major painters that painted for the market. Several genres- among them portraiture, still life, landscape and marinescape-dominated the painting of this period.

Persuasive Visions incorporates works from the collections of the Vancouver Art Gallery and The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, with important loans from a private collection. These are exhibited in contrast with works in similar genres by contemporary practitioners, including portrait photographs by Thomas Ruff; a major sculpture, Mouthful (2008), by Liz Magor; Jeff Wall’s landscape lightboxes; and a new sculptural installation by Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky, which has been commissioned for this presentation.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Ian Thom, senior curator-historical, with the assistance of The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
