Thinking of Dutch Golden Age art, one often thinks of massive masterpieces like 'the Nightwatch' and other painted icons of this important period in art history. Often overlooked are the many treasures hidden in print rooms and private collections all over the world: the masterpieces on paper, drawn by the same great masters as the iconic masterpieces. Join a local Dutch art historian for an exploration of some of the best seventeenth-century dutch drawings, beyond these classics.

More intimate in nature, and less shown in public due to their fragility, these hidden treasures represent a part of the Golden Age not really known to the great public. Take the many drawings that were made in preparation for paintings, or as stand-alone artworks in their own right. As an art historian working in and for world-renowned collections of Dutch seventeenth-century art, Sabry Amroussi has handled many of these masterpieces, often forging a bond with his favorite works.

Led by an expert in art history, discover drawings by Rembrandt, Golzius, van Ruisdael and many other remarkable artists of the Golden Age. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will emerge feeling as if they are looking over the shoulder of the artist creating his work.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection on Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.

Illuminates unfamiliar but fascinating work

What is so impressive about Sabry's lectures is that he not only provides extensive information about the period and its artists but he teaches how to see and appreciate works of art. This was particularly true of this session on drawings. The works and most of the artists are unfamiliar to me but I gained a deep understanding of how to better appreciate drawing.
