For the first time in 70 years, there is again an up-to-date overview of 19th-century painting. Vincent van Gogh, George Hendrik Breitner and Jozef Israëls are internationally renowned Dutch painters of the 19th century. But Dutch art from this time has much more to offer. In this publication, Jenny Reynaerts, senior curator at the Rijksmuseum, discusses Dutch 19th-century painting in the context of the international art world. She sheds new light on the changes in the art market, stylistic developments and the relationship between Dutch and foreign artists. More than 500 of the best and most relevant paintings have been selected for this publication: famous and barely known works and even a number of discoveries.
