Showcase Exhibition | 05.11.2020 – 09.05.2021
The bellicose rivalry between the leading maritime powers of England, Spain, and the Netherlands for supremacy in overseas trade was accompanied in the seventeenth century by the emergence of an independent genre of art: the seascape. The genre covers a broad spectrum of subjects, ranging from faithfully rendered ship portraits, dramatic naval battles and fleet reviews to everyday waterscapes and coastal scenes populated with anonymous boats to vistas that evoke the lure of the sea. Combining paintings, drawings, and prints from the Draiflessen’s collection, the “Seascapes” showcase exhibition will explore this fascination.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a trilingual publication (German, English, Dutch).
