Kunsthaus Zürich

Golden Age of Dutch Painting

Bourgeois-realist Dutch painting was much more to the taste of the Swiss republican palate than feudal baroque; but it was only thanks to the collection of Professor Leopold Ruzicka, a leading chemist and Nobel prize winner, that the Kunsthaus came into possession of top quality works by Rembrandt, Ruisdael, van de Cappelle, Kalf and other masters. Since then we have also had the good fortune to be able to supplement these with works by de Heem, Berchem, de Hooch and others.
