Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting
PARIS, FRANCE • Musée du Louvre • 22 February - 22 May 2017
|Organized in partnership with the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the exhibition presents Vermeer’s great masterpieces and those of his contemporaries.|
Through comparisons with the works of other artists of the Golden Age—among them Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, Caspar Netscher, and Frans van Mieris—the exhibition brings to light Vermeer’s membership of a network of painters specializing in the depiction of everyday life while admiring, inspiring, and vying with each other. Although they were painting in different cities of the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, their pictures show marked similarities of style, subject, composition, and technique.
