The Town of Veere with the Groote Kerk, 1665, Jan van der Heyden, The Royal Collection

This exhibition brings together 42 remarkable works, including paintings by Jacob van Ruisdael, Aelbert Cuyp, Nicolaes Berchem and Meyndert Hobbema. 

The fine detail and meticulous finish of Dutch landscapes appealed to British taste. The ability of Netherlandish artists to depict mood and emotion through the landscape of their homeland or the Italian countryside influenced the great British painters John Constable and JMW Turner. On seeing a seascape by Willem van de Velde the Younger, Turner remarked, ‘Ah! That made me a painter’.
