The Muscarelle Museum of Art, in Williamsburg, Virginia, will be the initial site for the national tour of the major exhibition of Old Master paintings. “The Dutch Italianates: Seventeenth-Century Masterpieces From Dulwich Picture Gallery” presents a variety of views of 17th-century Italian landscapes as seen through the eyes of Dutch artists, many of whom played a crucial role in the birth of a new genre of landscape painting in their home country. The exhibition features a group of 40 paintings by such artists as Aelbert Cuyp, Nicolaes Berchem, Karel Dujardin, and Adam Pynacker.

Am very much interested in your Dutch Italianates exhibit. I have an original Dutch Italianate oil on canvas painting. It is currently in storage but it will be in Virginia by mid December 2008. I could email a picture if you are interested and possibly Muscarelle Museum of Art could borrow it for this exhibit.
