This comprehensive overview is the first book in 70 years on the history of painting in the Netherlands in the 19th century. Vincent van Gogh, George Hendrik Breitner and Jozef Israëls are internationally renowned nineteenth-century Dutch painters. But the art of the Netherlands of that era has much more to offer. Jenny Reynaerts, senior curator of paintings at the museum, describes the nineteenth-century Dutch painting in the context of the international art world. She sheds new light on changes in the art market, stylistic developments and the relationship between Dutch and foreign artists. For this publication, over 500 of the best and most relevant paintings have been selected: from famous to scarcely known works, and even a few discoveries.
