The famous Dutch drawings in the Teyler Museum were mostly acquired before
1875. They reflect the partiality at that time for finished, detailed and often
coloured drawings. All genres are represented here, such as portraits, religious
and mythological scenes, scenes from daily life, landscapes and still-lifes.
title suggests all major names of that period are represented in the exhibition.
Sheets by masters like Goltzius, Rembrandt, Dou, Van Ostade and Mesdag are to
be admired. The drawings are made with all sorts of materials: pen and ink, pencil,
coloured chalk, watercolour and bodycolour. The highlights on exhibit illustrate
the magnificence of Dutch draughtsmanship of past centuries.
