Lecture Description

This arrangement of almost life-size nudes—an unusual subject for a Dutch painting—is by a master who lived long into the 17th century and was famous for his virtuosity and skill as a teacher. The painting in the Gallery’s collection, a spectacular ballet of fear and impending doom, exemplifies the ideals of the first generation of great Dutch artists.

Recorded on Friday, January 23, 2015, 1:30 pm.
