8 September 2022 | Dordrechts Museum
On September 8 at 2 pm, we invite you for a visit to the exhibition Wanderlust. Nederlandse kunstenaars op reis /Dutch Artists abroad 1800-1900 in the Dordrechts Museum.
The exhibition is a cooperation between the Dordrechts Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Guest curator Jenny Reynaerts, senior curator of paintings at the Rijksmuseum, will give a short introductory talk before the visit to the show. At 4pm, there will be drinks and bites and a chance to catch up after two years of missing each other!
In Wanderlust the canon of 19th-century Dutch art is challenged by showing paintings and drawings that Dutch artists made abroad during their many travels. As Reynaerts wrote in her overview, Mirror of Reality, 19th-Century Paintings in the Netherlands (Mercatorfonds/Yale UP 2019), the image of a nation of stay-at-home artists urgently needs to be revised. Travelling brought new insights and experiments and enabled some artists to join in foreign movements like Romanticism, the Barbizon School, the Nabis, or Orientalism. The exhibition covers wide horizons: from Northern Africa to Norway and from the Americas to Indonesia. New names will be added to your knowledge of 19th-century Dutch art, as well as surprising works by well-known artists.
This event is free of charge, but please note that you need a valid ticket and/or discount card for admission to the museum.
