In the Met

In the Met.I'm in the Met; it's great.

I doubt that I'll have time for the Frick collection, there is so much to see here.


Coming soon: "Pride of place: Dutch cityscapes of the Golden Age"

Yesterday when we were in the National Gallery of Art, I was wondering where the "View of Haarlem" was that I saw there two years ago.

It turns out that there is a very exiting exhibition now in the Mauritshuis in The Hague, "Pride of place: Dutch cityscapes of the Golden Age". The best news is that the exhibition will be on display in the National Gallery from February 2009. The Jan Lieven exhibition by the way, will move on to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and later in 2009 to the Netherlands.

I'm really looking forward to see the Dutch Cityscapes exhibition. It will even include the famous "View of Delft" by Vermeer, that Sasha and I saw when we visited the Mauritshuis in The Hague four years ago.

View of Haarlem with bleaching grounds by Jacob van Ruisdael.Sunday we visited the Mauritshuis in The Hague. The Mauritshuis is a museum with a large collection of old paintings, mainly from Dutch artists.

We were inspired by the movie we saw a few days ago: the painting "Girl with a pearl earring" is in the Mauritshuis. We had a very nice afternoon. There were some paintings by Frans Hals and Jacob van Ruisdael. I saw a picture of "View of Haarlem with bleaching grounds" in a book a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed seeing it now in real.

I am now waiting for papers to be processed. It will be another four weeks before I know more.
