From Antwerp to Amsterdam

Painting from the 16th and 17th centuries with unique works by great masters such as Van Cleve, Aertsen, Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Steen and Van Rijn.



Dutch art of the seventeenth century is praised worldwide, but how "Dutch" are these paintings really? Did the countless history paintings, landscapes, portraits, still lifes and scenes of everyday life really originate in cities such as Amsterdam, Haarlem, Delft and Leiden? Or did the cradle of these genres lie elsewhere?

Using over ninety masterpieces by Flemish and Dutch masters, this book shows that the flowering of seventeenth-century Dutch painting would not have happened without sixteenth-century Antwerp. In-depth research introduces the story of talented and well-educated artists and merchants who sought religious freedom and new trading opportunities in the north after the Fall of Antwerp in 1585.

From Antwerp to Amsterdam is a timeless reference work featuring unique works by great masters such as Joos Van Cleve, Pieter Aertsen, Maarten De Vos, Frans Floris, Frans Hals, Peter Paul Rubens, Antoon Van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Jan Steen and Rembrandt Van Rijn.
