Gerrit Dou. The Leiden Collection from New York

The largest collection of works by world-renowned 17th century Leiden painter Gerrit Dou is not to be found in one of the big museums, but in a private collection in New York.

The works by Dou from the exquisite ‘The Leiden Collection’ are on display in The Netherlands for the first time. This exhibition features both the results of recent material-technical research and a unique display of the stunning oeuvre of this painter, full of genre scenes and portraits, and in the typical style of this father of the Leiden Fijnschilders (fine-painters).

This painter is also known as Gerard Dou.

This video shows a preview of the Gerrit Dou exhibition.
