How can you take a trip to Northern Europe without stepping foot outside of NYC? Visit the MET during this three-hour tour of its Dutch and Flemish art collection!

The techniques of 15th-century painters such as Jan Van Eyck, Hans Memling, and Rogier Van der Weyden featured almost photographic realism, depicting vivid landscapes and still-life elements. In the coming years and centuries, the techniques these painters employed become more and more refined by such painting luminaries as the Brueghels, Jacques de Gheyn the Elder, Jacob Vosmaer, Jan Weenix, and Aelbert Cuyp. This would eventually lead to the 17th-century Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish art, highlighted by such painting legends as Rembrandt and Peter Paul Rubens.

During this informative tour, you’ll explore the rise of the still-life movement alongside a trained art historian, while visiting some of the MET’s premier examples of this style, including works by the aforementioned artists.

If you’re new to Northern European painting, it should be quite an eye-popping experience. And if you’re not … Well, it never hurts to brush up!
