Jacob van Ruisdael: Dutch Master of Landscape
UNITED STATES
PHILADELPHIA  •  Philadelphia Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 

Jacob van Ruisdael is often regarded as the single most important landscape painter of the Dutch Golden Age in the seventeenth century. He trained with his uncle Salomon and produced his first paintings in 1646 when he was sixteen or seventeen. Ruisdael painted the dunes, seashore, marshes, and forests around Haarlem, but also the more dramatic topography of Germany and even Scandinavia. This exhibition includes approximately forty-five paintings, thirty drawings, and twenty rare etchings.
