Symposium: De Wind is Op – Climate, Culture and Innovation in Dutch Maritime Painting

Investigate themes raised in the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s major
exhibition “De Wind is Op! Climate, Culture and Innovation in Dutch Maritime
Painting” with experts in the field. The exhibition explores the Whaling Museum’s
extraordinary collections of Golden Age Dutch and Flemish paintings through
a fresh lens, interpreting these treasures around the themes of wind, climate
and sea as the drivers behind a uniquely Dutch national identity of this period.
Partners for the De Wind is Op! Symposium include the Museum of Fine Arts,
Boston, Harvard Art Museums, and the Dutch Culture USA Program of the
Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The symposium is
supported in part by Deborah and William R. Elfers. Advance registration is strongly recommended. Lunch included.
