"Expressions of the Brush: Paintings by Dutch and British Masters"
2001-12-22 until 2003-02-01
Seattle Art Museum
Seattle, WA, USA

SEATTLE, Dec. 10, 2001-Cincinnati's Taft Museum of Art is loaning six Dutch masterpieces and four British paintings to the Seattle Art Museum while it is temporarily closed for renovation and expansion. The 10 loaned paintings, by artists including Frans Hals, J.M.W. Turner, Jan Steen and Pieter de Hooch, will be on view in the fourth floor galleries from Dec. 22, 2001, through February 2003.

Among the loans are three important portraits by Frans Hals, including a pair of marriage portraits (ca. 1650), and three high-life genre scenes by Dutch artists known for their rendering of silky fabrics and opulent interiors, including Jan Steen, Gerard ter Borch, and Pieter de Hooch. Also on loan is an early landscape by J.M.W. Turner, The Trout Stream.

I selected paintings that complement our own collection, says Chiyo Ishikawa, Seattle Art Museum curator of European painting. In other cases, I chose works by artists who are not represented in the Northwest, including Turner, Henry Raeburn and Lawrence Alma-Tadema. We feel privileged to have been selected to exhibit and safeguard them during the Taft Museum's closure.
