Peck Drawings Symposium on Dutch and Flemish Drawings at the Rijksmuseum, June 1-2

You don’t want to miss the Peck Drawings Symposium: Making, Collecting and Understanding Dutch and Flemish Drawings 1500-1800, to be held at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam from June 1-2. The symposium offers scholars a chance to discuss recent research on Dutch and Flemish works, including the study of materials and techniques, and issues of attribution and oeuvre cataloguing. The international panel of presenters includes Master Drawings editor, Jane Shoaf Turner, and delves into old masters included in the exhibition The Art of Drawing: Master Drawings from the Age of Rembrandt in the Peck Collection at the Ackland Art Museum.

Students get a greatly reduced rate, and the program includes exclusive visits to the Rembrandt House Museum AND the Vermeer exhibition.
