28 October - 26 February. An exhibition of 100 paintings and drawings by artists who paved the route to the "golden age" for the great masters of 17th-century Holland.
Although 17th-century Dutch art generally conjures up images of landscapes, of Rembrandt's biblical scenes and of Vermeer's interiors, Dutch drawing from that era tends to be less celebrated.
The Kupferstichkabinett presents a selection of works from its collection, providing a comprehensive overview of the golden age.
The exhibition begins with the drawings of pioneer artists and finishes with the great masters as the golden age's heyday started to draw to a close around 1680.
