ExhibitionSeptember 5, 2018 – January 13, 2019
Founded by Thomas S. Kaplan and Daphne Recanati Kaplan, The Leiden Collection, consisting of more than 250 paintings and drawings, is among the largest and most important collections of seventeenth-century Dutch art in private hands.
The online catalogue of The Leiden Collection, edited by Arthur K. Wheelock Jr., celebrates the world of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art, a Golden Age of creativity. The catalogue provides an overview of the Collection, scholarly entries of more than 175 paintings and drawings, artist biographies, as well as essays about major painters from Leiden featured in the Collection, including Rembrandt van Rijn, Gerrit Dou and Frans van Mieris.
The Leiden Collection traveling exhibition marks the first occasion that a survey of highlights from the Collection is presented to the public. The exhibition commenced at the Musée du Louvre, Paris in 2017, and will travel to China, Russia and the Middle East.
