Golden Age of Painting in EuropeRembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough & The Golden Age of Painting in Europe

The economic growth that swept Europe during the 17th and 18th century fueled a golden age of painting. Religious upheavals transformed the way people thought about and utilized art. Technical aspects of art making were honed and codified, as art academies grew in power. The number of artists and the number of art collectors grew exponentially during this period, as the fine arts reached an increasingly wider audience. This exhibition features more than 70 major works by master painters from the renowned collection of The Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.

The exhibition is comprised of brilliant portraits, religious paintings, landscapes, scenes of everyday life, still lifes and interpretations of classical antiquity.

WHEN:  Recurring daily through March 31st
WHERE:  Hunstville Museum of Art
COST:  $12
