The exhibition of Dutch masters in New York gathered a record number of visitors Automatic translate
The record number of visitors was collected in New York by the exhibition "Vermeer, Rembrandt and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis", dedicated to the work of old Dutch masters. The exhibition takes place at The Frick Collection Museum, whose leadership initially relied on Vermeer’s work “Girl with a Pearl Earring”, which served as the inspiration for the creation of the 2003 film of the same name.
However, the most attention was attracted by the work of Rembrandt’s student Carel Fabritius Carel Fabritius, The Goldfinch, around which the narrative of the best-selling novel in the USA by Donna Tartt with the same title unfolds. Paradoxically, it is thanks to this picture that the exhibition has become the most visited in the history of the museum. This was officially recognized in an interview by curator Margaret Iacono. The exhibition, which closed last Sunday, was visited by more than 235 thousand people, and this despite the fact that the average number of museum visitors is only 250 thousand people a year.
The New York Museum was the last step on the world tour of the classics of Dutch painting, organized by the Royal Gallery of Mauritshuis in The Hague, while the gallery itself carries out repairs. Other masterpieces presented at the exhibition were the works of Rembrandt "Simeon’s Laudatory Song" and "Susanna and the Elders."
