Talks on Dutch Art and Diversity at the Wallace Collection

8 January 2013

Stefanie van Gemert, PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature and Teaching Assistant at the Dutch department, will be teaching three half-an-hour sessions at the Wallace Collection on Saturday, 12 January (11am, 1pm and 3pm).

Her talks will be on 'Dutch Golden Age Art and Diversity', with a specific focus on the history of the Dutch East India Company and its influence on material and cultural wealth in the Dutch Republic.
Stefanie's talks are part of the Wallace Collection's 'Day in the Seventeenth Century', the final event of the HLF-sponsored community project 'Treasures from the East'. This project celebrated the refurbishment of the Wallace Collection's renowned East Galleries with Dutch art.

The events on Saturday are free (suggested donation £2) and promise to be entertaining for all age groups. There will be baroque music and dress performances; you can paint your own Delft Blue tiles and there are plenty of talks on Dutch art. Just walk in on the day and admire the newly-transformed East Galleries.

The Wallace Collection is one of the national museums, close to UCL (just off Oxford Street: Bond Street tube). The museum is free and has an outstanding collection of Dutch old master paintings by, for example, Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Pieter de Hooch.
