Past Exhibitions: 1993

  • Eighteenth-Century Dutch Watercolors from the Rijksmuseum Printroom, Amsterdam

    September 13, 1993 to November 7, 1993

    More than seventy watercolors from the print room of the Rijksmuseum were on view at The Frick Collection. The exhibition comprised supreme examples of one very special form of art from Holland's so-called Silver Age (1700–1800): the watercolor drawing. The selection made by Dr. J. W. Niemeijer, Emeritus Director of the print room and guest curator for the exhibition, introduced to the American public a chapter of Dutch art that was little known in this country.
