Turn your computer screen into a window on the beautiful northern light of the Netherlands, using the paintings of Aelbert Cuyp (1620-1691). While the physical exhibition of nearly 100 works by Cuyp has left Washington DC's National Gallery for London, virtual visitors can still see 17 of Cuyp's paintings in the online version of the exhibition brochure. Included are brief sections on Cuyp's life and work, patrons, and his posthumous reputation. Cuyp became so famous after his death in 1691 that, by 1800, none of his paintings remained in the Netherlands; they had all been bought by collectors from other countries. Select the image index to see all 17 of the works in the brochure.
