Past Exhibition: The Proud Republic

The Proud Republic: Dutch Medals of the Golden Age
May 6, 1997 to July 27, 1997

An exhibition of forty-one medals, a print by Rembrandt, and a spectacular silver-gilt standing cup with cover, dated 1639, by Jan Lutma the Elder, all chosen and catalogued by guest curator Stephen K. Scher.  The exhibition focused on Dutch medals of the seventeenth century, preceded by a sampling of sixteenth-century Italian and Netherlandish examples.  Almost all of the examples are in silver, and most are cast, although large struck medals are equally important and impressive.
