Rembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough and the Golden Age of Painting in Europe offers viewers in Central Florida a rare opportunity to experience the work of such celebrated artists as Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob van Ruisdael, William Hogarth, Thomas Gainsborough and Pompeo Batoni. This exhibition includes 71 distinguished old Master paintings from the Speed Art Museum and features work created in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Comprised of the major genres of painting that were popular at this time—portraits, religious paintings, landscapes, scenes of everyday life, still lifes and interpretations of classical antiquity—this exhibition illustrates both the people and the objects that made the two centuries between 1600 and 1800 such a rich cultural age.

Presented by Dr. Phillips Charities and the Orange County Arts and Cultural Affairs.
