On view at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Painted Presence: Rembrandt and His Peers brings together a remarkable selection of seventeenth-century Dutch paintings, including fifteen works from The Bader Collection at Agnes. Shown in dialogue with paintings from the AGO’s European Collection of Art, at the centre of this focused installation are seven artworks attributed to Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669), shown together for the first time. Featuring intensely observed still life paintings, detailed interiors and mesmerizing portraits, these striking artworks offer a rare glimpse of Dutch artistry at work.
